Dog racing top speed: 45mph.

Cheetah racing top speed: 80mph.

If you had a choice which would you want to see?

Profit generated goes to, wait for it... here's the good part... cheetah habitat preservation. (mic drop)

(Hmm, gotta work on my grip)

Racing dogs AND cheetah. https://www.imdb.co.../?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_5
There's even a Disney movie about it. [neutrinos_shadow, Feb 27 2022]

Get this guy on board to do a cooperative advertising thing going. https://en.wikipedi...iki/Chester_Cheetah

       I thought a cheetah's top speed might be for too short a distance, but it appears to be 1/4 of mile, or the length of a dog track...

       NOOOOOOOO!!!!   

       Okay, you know the drill. I call it the 24 hours march of shame where I leave it up for a day so people can see what happened.   

       Sigh, thanks a1. Should have done a search.

       WAIT! HOLD THE PHONE!   

       What about if I do a weasel move and say the using the profits from RESURRECTED 1930s cheetah racing to preserve cheetah habitats is the new idea, which I think technically it is.   

       1- Gets people thinking about cheetahs.   

       2- Generates money in an entertaining fashion.   

       3- HELPS cheetahs in the wild!   

       (mic drop)   

       (Hmm, might be something neurological)

       Okay, let me pick up that mic so I can drop it again.   

       Get Frito-Lays on board. Have a commercial where the Cheetos mascot, Chester Cheetah is munching on that delicious snack that leaves your fingers orange while watching the races. Something funny happens, maybe he tries out and comically fails but the end of the commercial says "10% of every sale goes to Cheetah Habitat Races."   

       (gently sets mic down because this thing is starting to get pretty dinged up)

       JESUS CHRIST! I JUST REALIZED CHESTER THE CHEETAH IS ALREADY WEARING RUNNING SHOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND YES I YELLED IT AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS FOR THE WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD TO HEAR!!

       How will you deal with cheating?
pocmloc, Feb 28 2022
  

       Hmm, cheating, does sound like cheetah, should be a way to figure that into marketing...   

       "Don't be a cheata' when it comes to cheetah habitat preservation, watch the cheetah races this Sunday..."   

       No? Hmm.   

       Just use it as a regular occurring joke the announcers use?   

       "AND CHARLIE CHEETAH TAKES FIRST PLACE! WHAT A CHEETAH!"   

       "Hey, that's not fair, he won fair and square."   

       "No, I said he's a cheetah."   

       "Why would you call him a cheata', and frankly Tony your Bronx accent makes you sound ignorant."   

       "How'd you like to ignorant ma fist in ya face?"
doctorremulac3, Feb 28 2022
  

       From the link:   

       "Cheetahs are intelligent creatures, cunning hunters and devastatingly uncompetitive."   

       That might be more of a problem than the cheating.   

       Now, if you could train cheetahs to review novels on late night TV, you might be on to something.

       LOL.   

       I wouldn't even know what to feed the critters. "Come on, eat your Cheetos."

       Oh well, at least it's not a sniper bone.
