NASCAR Signs Agreement With the EPA

Is this the end of America's greatest sport?
President Obama’s eco-friendly EPA inked a green partnership deal with high-octane NASCAR Monday to promote recycling and environmentally-friendly products to the sport’s millions of fans.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, NASCAR will encourage fans to buy “sustainable concessions” at races, expand the use of “safer chemical products,” conserve water, reduce waste, promote recycling, push products approved by the EPA that have a small enviro footprint and encourage suppliers to get an “E3 tuneup” aimed at promoting sustainable manufacturing.

Missing: any talk of greening races or race cars that consume about two million gallons of gas a year and average five miles per gallon.

“Yes, the focus is on suppliers and programs, not green cars,” said an EPA spokesman.

If I was elected president the first thing I'd do is shut down the EPA.

And then go to the Daytona 500.

There's no truth to the rumor that next year's Cup cars will have windmills.

Interesting that this comes on the heels of news that they're probably going to get stripped of all their military sponsorship.

I wonder what the government threatened NASCAR with if they didn't sign the 'agreement'.
