What if the entire Nationwide Series schedule had health condition sponsors?

Saturday's Nationwide race at Bristol was titled the "Drive to Stop Diabetes 300," the second health-related sponsorship after the season-opening "Drive for COPD 300."

And guess what? There's more. This week's Nationwide race at Auto Club Speedway in California is the " 300." That's three health-related sponsorships in five races.

This got us thinking, which is a very dangerous proposition. What if all 33 races were named for health conditions? After all, we already have the "Dollar General 300 Miles of Courage" later in the season and the " 300" (in Kentucky, nonetheless) while the Phoenix race on March 1 was the "Blue Jeans Go Green 200 Presented by Cotton, the Fabric of our Lives."

It can't get much more absurd.

So here's our ideal full-season of races named for health conditions. When compared to the three real sponsors, some of them aren't so crazy, right?
