With their racing budgets deemed “unnecessary expenditures,” GM and Chrysler are ordered to cease racing operations at the end of the season.

BY JARED GALL, ILLUSTRATION BY ERIC WOODWARD
April 2009

In a move sure to spark outrage, the White House announced today that GM and Chrysler must cease participation in NASCAR at the end of the 2009 season if they hope to receive any additional financial aid from the government. Companies around the globe—Honda and Audi, to name two—have drawn down racing operations, and NASCAR itself has already felt the pinch in the form of reduced team spending. A complete withdrawal from America’s premier racing series is expected to save more than $250 million between GM and Chrysler, a substantial amount considering the drastic measures being implemented elsewhere.

“Automakers used to operate on the principle of ‘win on Sunday, sell on Monday,’ but the Auto Task Force’s research just doesn’t validate that as true,” said the statement from President Obama. While fans have decried the Car of Tomorrow for heavily limiting what little personalization the cookie-cutter series had previously allowed to participating manufacturers, and drivers have slammed its brick-like aerodynamics and unpredictable handling, even the governmental oversight committee sees that the full-scale regulation of the cars leaves the manufacturers very little space for research and development. “NASCAR is a racing series that regulates down to the smallest detail of the cars, where a car badged a Chevrolet or Dodge differs only marginally from a Ford or a Toyota. There’s no technological development to speak of.”

The statement goes on further to say the same demand will be made of Ford if it asks for government assistance. “In order to receive this money, corporations must demonstrate they will spend it wisely. Racing has been said to improve on-road technology, but frankly, NASCAR almost flaunts its standing among the lowest-tech forms of motorsport. NASCAR is not proven to drive advancements that transfer from the racetrack to the road, and this nation’s way forward does not hinge on decades-old technology. We need new, and we need innovation.”

The President realizes this will be an unpopular call, but stands behind the decision, saying, “This is an obvious cut to make, but it is not an easy one. This administration is not ignoring the tremendous sentimental value and emotional appeal NASCAR holds for so many Americans. But now is not the time for sentiment and nostalgia; now is a time for decisive financial action. If our automotive industry is to emerge from this recession intact, then these difficult decisions must be made.”

Both Chevrolet and Dodge see the move as only temporary, and fully expect to resume racing in NASCAR as soon as they have stabilized and the government’s hand in their operations is minimized. “There is nothing really to say at this point,” said one representative, who wished to remain anonymous. “We’ve been doing this since the beginning, and we always assumed we’d be doing this until the end. Heck, nobody ever thought to think that there would be an end. But we ain’t done. As soon as this is over, we’re taking back our spot at the top.”

NASCAR officials remain tight-lipped about the call, but sources say series president Mike Helton and team managers are exploring several options, including other manufacturers to fill Chevrolet and Dodge’s vacated positions. Given the company’s recent interest in motorsport and the steady cash-flow and V-8 engine provided by its new Genesis sedan, sources indicate that NASCAR is pinging Hyundai to gauge the Korean company’s interest in occupying a spot in NASCAR. “Toyota was not well-received their first year in the sport, nor was their first season an easy one,” the source says. “But they learned, they applied the lessons, and they have proven very competitive this year.”

If Hyundai does indeed join the series, there will no doubt be a steep learning curve, and the move would leave Ford the lone domestic battling a pair of Asian makes in America’s most popular racing series. We wonder, however, how long NASCAR could hold that title without two of its most storied participants.

just put governors on the cars.

How about replace the engines with big rubber bands? Then instead of burning POISONOUS GASOLINE to make DEADLY POLLUTION CARBON DIOXIDE, they can employ a couple of "winders" in each car, whose job it is to crank on some handles to keep the rubber band wound up.

This improvement will transfer directly to the road, since gasoline will be illegal soon. Unless you're in the government, then of course you're too important to drive a rubber band car, of course government people get gasoline cars.

What you should be asking yourself is "why is it so plausible?"


1.We have an auto industry that's on the rocks because Bill Clinton and George Bush signed some of the stupidest banking reforms imaginable.


2.ALL manufactures world wide are in trouble because they cant borrow money to get through this recession (See #1)

3.Obama wont LEND (as opposed to GIVE , like he did with AIG)the automakers operating capital unless they start building "politically correct" vehicles that WONT SELL even after the economy recovers.


4. And guess what Obama's other chief demand is
HE WANTS GM TO CRUSH THE UAW !!!!!


If I was one of the poor saps in the UAW who voted for Obama I'd be feeling pretty stupid (and angry) right now.

No they got caught, and they didn't even have their white tuxedos.

Schlesselman stated that they planned to drive their vehicle as fast as they could toward Obama, shooting at him from the windows. Both individuals stated they would dress in all white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt. Both individuals further stated they knew they would and were willing to die during this attempt.

April Fools! Bogus Report Rattles NASCAR Nation

Depending on your point of view, Car And Driver magazine has authored one of the best April Fools jokes in recent memory, or the worst ever.

Author Jared Gall penned an article late yesterday claiming that President Barack Obama had ordered both General Motors and Chrysler to end their involvement in NASCAR by the end of the 2009 season, or lose their share of federal bailout dollars. Perhaps the author's name -- Gall -- should have provided a clue that something was amiss on April 1. But for a brief time yesterday evening, NASCAR Nation was badly shaken by what now appears to have been a completely bogus report.

The story quoted Obama saying, "Automakers used to operate on the principle of 'win on Sunday, sell on Monday,' but the Auto Task Force's research just doesn't validate that as true."

Car And Driver also reported the government’s automotive oversight committee had concluded that NASCAR’s new Car Of Tomorrow eliminates the possibility of meaningful technological development, saying, "NASCAR is a racing series that regulates down to the smallest detail of the cars. There's no technological development to speak of."

The story also quoted the unattributed government statement as saying, “Racing has been said to improve on-road technology, but frankly, NASCAR almost flaunts its standing among the lowest-tech forms of motorsport. This nation's way forward does not hinge on decades-old technology. We need new, and we need innovation." Car And Driver said Ford will also be required to exit the sport, if the Detroit automaker requests federal bailout assistance. Finally, it claimed that NASCAR officials are considering replacing Chevrolet and Dodge with Hyundai.

Happy April Fools Day, everyone!

Both of them should stop putting any money into nascar. They are broke/bankrupt! Period, end of story.
