UAW * United Auto Workers will fly an ANTI-Romney banner over the Daytona 500 tomorrow afternoon. I doubt if TV viewers will see it as the race will be televised by FOX.
The premise is that had Romney's "do not bail out Detroit" advice been followed, there would be no cars in NASCAR......NOT TRUE.
FORD * 2 of Jack Roush's Fords are on the front row tomorrow, did NOT take the government bailout.
DODGE * except for 2 Penske cars and Robby Gordon's single entry * are the ONLY 3 cars in the 43 car field....Dodge has not supported their teams for several years and is almost completely out of the NASCAR truck series.
CHEVROLET * BowTie drivers * are fielded by Rick Hendrick, DEI * Dale Earnhardt/Chip Ganassi * Richard Childress and while they may have manufacturer support with some elements of their teams, they build cars from the ground up, manufacture their OWN engines and the ONLY resemblance to a "street car" is the decal * NOTHING about the cars that run in NASCAR resemble the cars assembled by the UAW.
TOYOTA * Nuff Said - they are not union and Japanese manufacturers employ over 400,000 US workers in 29 plants and 34 R&D and design centers.
NASCAR * over the past decade * has had discussions with VW and BMW to sponsor cars in the sport.
