CSPI Slams NASCAR Hard-Liquor Deal ~ Newsroom ~ News from CSPI

Wow....I'm discouraged to hear that NASCAR is allowing hard liquor sponsorships for its cars and races. I'm surprised to hear that, when I think of NASCAR fans I think of a whole group of genteel non-drinkers who just love powerful cars. I'm kidding of course. I really don't see what the big issue is. Though beer is less potent by volume than hard liquor, I would say that an exorbitant amount of beer and hard liquor is consumed prior to, during, and after most NASCAR events. I seriously doubt a non drinking NASCAR fan would be so struck by a Jack Daniel's advertisement that he would go out and down a fifth to pay homage to his favorite driver.

"If’n yur gonna drank, yur gonna do it regardless of whut Mark Martin has on the hood of his daggone car.".....avid NASCAR fan.
