Army to End NASCAR Sponsorship
The US Army has announced it will end its decade-long NASCAR sponsorship after this year. The move has been praised by Betty McCollum (D-Minn), who has put forward amendments for at least two years attempting to strip the military’s ability to sponsor professional sports. For its part, the military generally considers such exposure good for recruiting. For the record, the Army will still be sponsoring a car in the National Hot Rod Association.
In his tradition of revising history, Michael Weinstein will likely claim this as a victory in his organization’s efforts to keep religious faith out of the military – not that Weinstein’s position has ever been consistent.
