Congress Wants National Guard Out Of NASCAR
National Guard members are telling Congress: Don't put the breaks on our sponsorship of race cars. Lawmakers are considering doing just that in efforts to save the Pentagon money. But the National Guard Association said recruiting was not what it used to be. Only one in four young people was eligible to join. Television ads don't have as big an impact as before. The association said that was why the Guard was using motorsports and musicians to spread the word. The National Guard sponsors NASCAR's most popular driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr. The Army and Air Force also tattoo their brands on race cars.
