The SpongeBob SquarePants 400 was a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. On March 2, 2015, it was announced that Nickelodeon was sponsoring the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas. It was held on May 9, 2015. The race was broadcast on Fox Sports 1.
Following the sponsorship, the race is called SpongeBob SquarePants 400. A similar event took place in 2016, where Nickelodeon sponsored a race and called it the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400. This race, however, was later in the season and took place at Chicagoland Speedway. In the NASCAR Cup Series race, four drivers ran SpongeBob-themed paint schemes. These drivers were David Ragan, Greg Biffle, Casey Mears, Michael McDowell, and Ty Dillon who ran schemes with SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Larry, and Plankton respectively. In the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race that took place the night before the Cup Series race, Ben Kennedy ran a scheme featuring Patrick, SpongeBob, Gary, and Squidward on the hood.
