Footage from the Patriot 500 commercial on CNT.

The Patriot 500 is a stock car racing event advertised in Grand Theft Auto IV on CNT sponsored by Patriot Beer. The commercial airs before the first segment of I'm Rich.

Commercial Script

  • Announcer: Hey racefans, it's coming! Saturdays, don't miss the Patriot 500 Live from Patriot Beer Motor Speedway! It's edge of your seat excitement as rednecks drive around in a circle 500 times!


  • The Patriot 500's commercial is supposedly set at Patriot Beer Motor Speedway, but it is actually Carl Johnson, protagonist of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, driving a Hotring Racer on the Los Santos International Airport's runway in the gameworld of GTA San Andreas.
  • Ironically, although promoting the event, the commercial is mocking it with the popular insult to stock-car racing that all cars do is "race in circles for hours", not to mention that said drivers are "rednecks", another common insult to NASCAR fans or drivers as this is (supposedly) a sport well-enjoyed in the Southern states of the country.
