Army Nascar entry. Daytona 500.
A U.S. Congresswoman has launched an effort to force the U.S. Army to drop its sponsorship of NASCAR, in opposition to the widespread practice of motorsports sponsorship by the U.S. armed services. While military-branded cars appear in IndyCar and the NHRA, the prominence of NASCAR is evidently a sticking point for U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., who singled it out for elimination in an amendment she introduced as part of a federal spending bill.
“None of the funds made available by this Act may be used by the Department of Defense for sponsorship of NASCAR racecars,” she wrote in the text of her amendment, which is one of more than 400 that lawmakers are attempting to attach to Rep. Paul Ryan's spending bill to fund the government through Sept. 30. The bill is scheduled for a vote later this week.
“This is not only putting a sticker on the car,” McCollum's chief of staff Bill Harper told The Wall Street Journal. “This is paying for a race team. That doesn't contribute to military readiness. It's just a waste of money.”
The Marines, Navy and Coast Guard dropped their NASCAR sponsorships in 2006, but the WSJ reports that the Army spent $7 million on NASCAR endorsements last year, down from $11.6 in 2009. The Army contends that NASCAR sponsorship is a key part of its outreach to potential recruits. Ryan Newman (ABOVE) carries the Army colors in the Daytona 500 this weekend.

Not all race car owners believe in additives. But some do!
I find, those who believe in our Mega Power Fuel, Engine, and Transmission Additives tell me they became believers in Mega Power by taking notice of its ability to squeeze extra horsepower.
And seeing Mega Power's amazing wear reduction, helping costly parts have a twice-as-long life - endures Mega Power to the race car owner. Such Mega Power features mean less rebuilding after a race, giving them a time and expense reduction of thousands of dollars. And of course, and edge to more wins!
The love develops. Such added horsepower gains, and ability to now skip costly overhauls after a race are benefits they grow to love Mega Power for.
Extra horsepower. They tell me they see Mega Power's ability to produce an extra power gain and horsepower boost helps the car move them ahead of the pack faster.
Crankshaft extra spin benefit. These features coming from Mega Power slowing the micro burn time - a crankshaft extra spin benefit sends more power to the wheels.
Valve closing speed. And its lube aid giving valves movement a snappier closing action - keeps more fuel in the combustion area. A horsepower boosting feature to compliment the slower burn time, and horsepower increasing output.
Hot Spots. They feel Mega Power's horsepower's extra horsepower making ability helps them gain faster speedup coming out of turns. This faster speed up gain, due to Mega Power's ability to release and free horsepower drain, and lower high internal temps is from eliminating surface "hot spots" through out the engine, gears, wheel bearings.
Cooling Features. Mega Power's MC+ friction elimination is also seen as their engine's run hour after hour at 200 mph speeds with ease, coolness, and no sign of weakening. Normally, weakening comes from the terrible abuse thrust on surface parts, creating hot spots, and their horsepower sucking nature Mega Power eliminates. Ask me how to test this friction and heat reducing feature, by showing what it does to wheel bearings heat.
The Micro Smoothing action. Mega Power gives internal surfaces on pistons, shafts, bearings, gears, and seals an ultra micro smooth surface conditioning. This smoothing effect allows less drag as those surfaces. They again can slide upon each other a bit faster. Such smoothing allows less drag and horsepower to overcome the problem. Smoothing end that drain, and allows more horsepower to push power thru. All helping the engine go from slow to peak speed a bit quicker - not possible otherwise.
Mega Powered. Mega Power treated race cars run cooler and stronger while competitor cars become smoking hot running, with high temp problems. Even 30 gallons of oil circulating can't help. Drivers notice their Mega Powered treated cars come out of turns, and start lines with a stronger smoothness and faster accent to full speeds.
Friction reduction. While its amazing friction reducing ability slows wear to a stand still, its benefit extend costly internal parts life by double.
In all this, race car builders and drivers love Mega Power additive features. Its other real value speed you out of turns and start lines faster.
Make it Your love.
If a small equipment owner. If a man or women car owner. A single gals smart car care and repair source - if no man is around to do such. I can help you! That's my job!
For the average car truck tractor, dozer rv boat motorcycle owner, there is a Mega Power additive with MC+ for you. You then can add these features to your fuel engine, transmission, radiator, and p steering anti-wear care, for longer life, and problem solving. All for a better performance.
Some people don't like additives because they never tried Mega Power Additives. Those that have see the reasons to love em!
Mega Power additives can open a whole zippy new driving experience. A world of cost reduction, repair avoiding. And when you need more power, an edgy, racy driving experience -there under your gas pedal.
Mega Power can keep going better, every vehicle worth protecting. Ah, the love of Mega Power. Engine, Transmission Heat, Friction-Reducing Additives
