Smoke Free NASCAR

Thursday, June 19th, 2003 · 1 Comment

In the ongoing fight against big tobacco, I was pleased to learn today that NASCAR has cancelled its 33-year contract with JR Reynolds and brought on Nextel as its latest sponsor. Of course, JR Reynolds claims it was going to end the contract anyway, but I believe (at least I would like to believe) that part of the reason was due to the signatures of 14,000 of us collected by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids pressuring NASCAR to change its sponsorship. Grassroots in action. Gotta love it.
