Connected to and designed to promote the marketing juggernaut that is NASCAR (at least, given that the organization is in the title, they're not trying to hide the association in any way). Tire maker Goodyear's name is attached to the group that remodels cars.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality show revolves around a group of mechanics with one goal in mind: helping people fix broken cars. It's a feel-good half-hour with very few faults (unless you're opposed to constant NASCAR promotion) and shows a softer side of the fast-paced world of auto racing.
Is It Any Good?
NASCAR Angels lacks the suspense (and violent crashes) inherent in the sport's races, but more than makes up for that "lack" with its feel-good makeovers. Car buffs will want to tune in, as will parents looking for shows that the whole family can watch together.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
