Spade Racingopoly

I love Monopoly.  I love Nascar.  You’d think I’d own one of the many Nascar-themed Monopoly sets that have been made over the years.  But you’d be wrong.  Why?  Because these “Nascaropoly” game boards always allow you to buy DRIVERS or cars instead of actual race tracks—you know, properties, like in the ACTUAL MONOPOLY.
That’s why I’ve come up with the first-ever track-based Monopoly game, Spade Racingopoly!  Play just like you would in a regular Monopoly game, but with the race tracks of Nascar replacing the streets of Atlantic City.
