NASCAR Update

An interesting update has come to my attention. A NASCAR technical expert now is conceding that lead is not needed in race cars.

Glenn Feiske of the NASCAR Technical Institute http://www.ntieducation.com/home.asp , which describes itself as “the exclusive educational partner of NASCAR,” told WCNC television in Charlotte that lead isn’t really needed if other technology improvements were made.

“If you said right now there’s no more leaded fuel – we’re not going to run leaded fuel,” said Feiske, “It could be done.”

Meanwhile, here is a sampling of e-mails that Clean Air Watch has received in response to our initial call that NASCAR heed EPA's warning about the continuing use of lead:

to whom ever this may concern,

why is it that people feel the need to but their noses in where they dont belong? why do busy body enviormental groups feel the need to try to save the world when the problem areas they target do not support 1/10,000 of the problem they are facing?not to mention your nascar pollution problem is as bogus as your organizations claims and clean air has no scientific evidence to back any of their claims up! the fact is you and your organization is just like big government target the little guy or take the easy way out! i would not doubt that clean airs superiors are looking to get their pockets lined by way of the nascar buck, when in the last 50 plus years of any form of motor sport in or out of this country was a claim made from any one saying they were sick from anything that went on at the race track? let me tell you

NEVER!!!!

do you know how much lead is in per gallon of fuel ? i bet you do not , does your organization know how many race fuel manufacturers exsist? and how many million dollar companys you will force out of business? how about the legal ramifications from the thousands of race car owners that will have to spend billions of dollars to modify their race cars to accept non leaded fuels, would your organization like to have to face a class action law suite of this magnatude ? before you and your followers decide to try and fix problems or challenge organizations to change you better fully investigate what you are doing and look far past your nose to the economical ramifications that will be induced by your insane claims!!!!

I had to laugh at the logic environmental groups are using to encourage NASCAR to get the lead out...

While I can't speak for the nearby residents, I don't think the millions of stock car fans who pump mass quantities of alcohol directly into their blood streams while chain-smoking Winstons and munching on pork rinds every Sunday afternoon are going to be too concerned about inhaling a few parts per million of tainted Sunoco.

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.

check it out if something like this interests you.

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!

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on the lcdtv in the back of my Hummer.

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
