    Looks to me that NASCAR folded like a cheap suit!

    The race at Texas (going on as I post)...was to be called & sponsored by the NRA....So far I have heard NO mention of the NRA.

    I guess Fox & Nascar have folded to the anti's.............

    Very disappointed & that's the last I'll ever spend on NASCAR races or their merchandise!

    Something must have changed since earlier today..They reported that,everything would go on as planned, and at the end of the race,the driver,or someone,would get 2 revolvers.

    There is a electronic bill board in the middle of turn 4 that has the NRA logo on it & it looks like the infield may have the NRA logo as well....but FOX has not said a word about the NRA & there have been no commercials......

    Two sponsors told their drivers not to do interviews as they did not want the NRA sign behind them wearing the sponsor's logos! Reported by ESPN! Time for a boycott of those sponsors!

    This kind of crap is getting outta hand! And to think, Obama is just sitting back laughing his butt off. I am really getting mad right about now.

    I watched the pre-race and the opening ceremonies and they called it the NRA 500 at least twice in the opening and several times in the pre-race. Several shots of the NRA logo on the opening ceremonies. You may have just missed it.

    Good. At least I can count on NASCAR to keep it real.

    Gee why did the NRA pay for exposure if they aren't getting the benefits of sponsorship. You watch any Golf Tourney (Sorry Golf to me ranks up there with watching grass grow). They mention the main sponsor about every ten minutes. I would think the NRA should sue NASCAR - You do know there where reports that the drivers of the NRA sponsored cars were banned from the media tent, by NASCAR. I thought the NASCAR crowd especially in TEXAS would do better than that. Barry got to someone over there.

    Would have been nice to hear at least one of the drivers in their after race interviews thank the NRA for sponsoring the event.

    Alan Fram, of the AP, reported that "The National Rifle Association, a foe of the Democratic bill, was sponsoring a NASCAR race in Fort Worth, Texas, and using tweets to urge its supporters to watch it on television. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., has asked the Fox network not to broadcast the event, but it was still scheduled to be televised."

    Our opponents are pulling pages out of Nazi Germany: play ball with the government by limiting association with the NRA, and get the favors. All to be the only game in town in the midst of a federal push for gun regulation. Such a government is way too big for our own good.
