Rep. Betty McCollum recently offered an amendment to House File No. 1 which called for elimination of taxpayer funded military sponsorship of NASCAR enterprises. Amounts spent were $7.4 million for Roger Newman’s car (Army), $2 million for A.J. Allendinger (Air Force), and $32.8 million for Hendrick Motorsports/Dale Earnhardt (National Guard).
