NASCAR spokesman Jon Schwartz said lawmakers won't be making a dent in the deficit.
"It doesn't save taxpayers any money because it doesn't include a reduction in spending by the military. It reallocates marketing dollars away from this valuable channel," he said. "Singling out sponsorships is like telling a carpenter he can't bring a key tool to the job site. Leaving decisions like these in the hands of a few members of Congress is misguided."
