NASCAR responds to Clean Air Watch

It took two months, but NASCAR has finally responded to our letter regarding the continuing use of leaded gasoline in NASCAR races.

But did NASCAR really say anything? You can decide.

Mr. Frank O'Donnell
President
Clean Air Watch
1090 Vermont Avenue, N.W.
Suite 800
Washington, DC 2005

Dear Mr. O'Donnell,

Thank you for your letter concerning the use of leaded fuel in NASCAR. NASCAR takes seriously all aspects of health and safety for its fans, participants and the environment. In this regard, NASCAR has been actively working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for several years and more recently with our new fuel supplier, Sunoco, to come up with possible alternatives to our current fuel formula.

NASCAR and Sunoco will continue to evaluate new fuel formulations and specifications that will allow NASCAR engines to continue to perform while not causing unintended consequences in other areas. We are encouraged by the progress and will continue to work diligently to determine the best solution for our racing application.

Sincerely,

Gary Nelson
Vice President of Research and Development
NASCAR, Inc.

I agree,

I love Nascar Racing. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite teams and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time the team wins. Also I can sell my team stock when the price goes up.

They just released IPO'S for Nascar Racing this week, so there are alot of good deals there.

Keep up the good work on your blog!

I read that Payday loans are marketed as a way to help you cover your expenses until your next paycheck. Also called check cashing, payroll advance and deferred deposit, these loans offer a fast way to access emergency money. I read this on Faxless Payday Loan Thanks !
