With their racing budgets deemed “unnecessary expenditures,” GM and Chrysler are ordered to cease racing operations at the end of the season.
In a move sure to spark outrage, the White House announced today that GM and Chrysler must cease participation in NASCAR at the end of the 2009 season if they hope to receive any additional financial aid from the government. Companies around the globe—Honda and Audi, to name two—have drawn down racing operations, and NASCAR itself has already felt the pinch in the form of reduced team spending. A complete withdrawal from America’s premier racing series is expected to save more than $250 million between GM and Chrysler, a substantial amount considering the drastic measures being implemented elsewhere.

WHOOPS! YOU GOT ME! ALTHOUGH,I WOULDN’T BE SUPRISED IF “THE MESSIAH” TRIED A STUNT LIKE THAT.
Car and Driver has at least gotten a lot of publicity for their Nascar April Fool’s stunt; the question is — is bad publicity better than no publicity at all?
