The day we celebrate America has often a little sports in the mix. After all, America and sports goes together like peanut butter and jelly, or to make it more 4th of July ish… burgers and beer.
Of course Independence Day is always associated with baseball since it’s the only major league which has games during the summer.
With 12 games on the MLB schedule, there will be plenty of baseball available across the country.
Since the celebration of independence often extends into the weekend, let’s not forget about NASCAR’s 4th of July race in Daytona, Florida. This year marks the last edition of a long tradition of celebrating Independence Day by racing either on the 4th or the nearest weekend at Daytona International Speedway.
The race is scheduled to be moved to August and will be next year's regular-season finale, a move that has some of the most traditional NASCAR fans fuming.
With the TV ratings and overall popularity in free fall in the past few years, the top-racing series in America continues to try to stay alive in the very competitive market of North American sports.
