That, and I am wondering if it is a bit of a political move....Think about all of the companies that have decided to no longer advertise for guns, or stores that carry guns, etc.

Will we see cable companies black out the nascar race because it is sponsored by the NRA? Will we see fans boycott? Will we see additional fans simply because they are 2nd ammendment supporters (someone like myself is more apt to watch simply to support the NRA)? Will we see drivers not participate? Will we see other advertisers opt out? Will we see other advertisers opt in?

To me it is more than just $$ for advertising instead of lobbying in washington, I think its a bit more strategic than that.
