NASCAR is being heavily promoted by a broadcast partner as about to embark on “The Best Season Ever” and on paper that could be true. NASCAR this year will race on dirt for the first time since 1970, the schedule includes a whopping seven road courses and five venues new to the Cup Series.

Jeff Bezos has more money than anyone in the world, which means people are going to reach out to hm for help when they have problems.

Even global superstars. 

Pitbull released an impassioned plea on his Instagram Thursday, asking for people to recognize what’s going on in his home country of Cuba, as residents protest the lack of food, supplies and medicine thanks to a corrupt and incompetent government. 

“It gets me hot, it bothers me and it frustrates me to a certain extent, being a Cuban American and having a platform to speak to the world and not being able to help my own people. Not being able to get them food, not being able to get them water, not being able to get them medicine, but most of all not being able to help and get them what they deserve, which is freedom.”

How does Bezos enter the story? He’s in Southern California, preparing for his July 22 trip into space on his Blue Origin rocket, but Pitbull referenced him in his video, saying Bezos should be concerned about what’s going on since he grew up in Miami. 

“All world allies get together to help. Global businesses get together to help. People that we’re so proud of, such as Jeff Bezos — Cuban-American — graduated from a high school in Miami, built one of the biggest companies in the world, the richest man in the world. He’s somebody that can get involved and really help us.”
