NASCAR shocks gun industry as it appears to block some firearm ads

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)NASCAR rejected advertisements for its souvenir programs from multiple firearms companies earlier this summer as part of what is being seen as a "gradual shift" in its position on guns.

The move may be another example of how major companies are adjusting as the nation grapples with guns in America.

1. Really, David?

I have watched a bunch of races and attended two. I have NEVER seen anyone firing guns in the winner's circle. They drink beer in the winner's circle - Coors, the official beer of NASCAR, unless a team is sponsored by a different beer company. Beer and guns don't go together.

5. Okay, thanks...

I havenít watched that one. Texas Motor Speedway was built during the 1.5-mile-trioval building boom, so I donít pay it much mind.
