Long Way

Agency: GSD&M


As the official tire of NASCAR for more than 60 years, Goodyear wanted to celebrate the fact that racing becomes the first major sport to return on May 17th. Goodyear, an icon of the sport, partnered with another NASCAR icon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. to provide the voiceover. Dale Jr. said “We’ve had a strong partnership with Goodyear over the years, telling my family’s story in racing. I was happy to be involved and to help welcome NASCAR back to the track with this spot.”
Created by GSD&M, “Long Way” debuts this Saturday and harkens back to Goodyear’s humble beginnings using historic NASCAR footage as Dale Jr. describes the trajectory of the sport and heralds its return. The timely message is one of hope and optimism – and that the journey of the sport of NASCAR is analogous with where we are right now as a country. Yes, we’ve been on a long journey but there are better days ahead.
