NASCAR becomes politically-correct?
Nowadays it seems that this does not fit the image of the sport which the organizers and the sponsors want to have. In fact NASCAR is becoming very like Formula 1...
It has just been announced that Home Depot, the sponsor of Tony Stewart, has fined him $50,000 and placed him on probation for the rest of the season for punching a photographer recently at Indianapolis. Stewart has also had to pay out $10,000 to NASCAR for bringing the sport into disrepute.
They will be serving pink champagne in the paddock before you know it.
