Salute The Troops
Six Sprint Cup drivers and two Nationwide Series drivers will lead all NASCAR fans in the USO Salute the Troops Memorial Day tribute to the armed forces on May 24-25 at Lowe's Motor Speedway to kick off a nationwide effort to raise funds for military families worldwide.Of course, no good deed can go unmocked, so I give you this (from the same link):
This was a response to the news in other circles:
"Nascar is a crappy excuse for a sport and should be banned for a year to save gasoline."
"That would be the partriotic thing to do. All you nascar "patriots" out there can at least sacrafice a year of no races, right? You can do that small sacrafice for your nation? "
"It's time for all those super-patriotic Red-White-&-Blue nascar fans to write to the organization and demand a year of the races to be called off..."
How very... moronic... If you're so inclined, send NASCAR a message saying how much you appreciate their support of our military. Here's some contact info.
