Yes we are payinng millions of dollars to recruit rednecks to our military. We are targeting them with what they hold most dear NASCAR. The approximate sponsorship totals are $20 million dollars to Dale Earnhardt Jr. from the National Gaurd. The U.S. Army pays $7.4 million to Ryan Newman, while the Air Force sponsors A.J. Allmendinger with $1.6 million. I guess the Air Force undervalues vehicles that don't fly.
The House of Representatives has voted to renew these sponsorship contracts. Approximately $28 million worth of military recruiting is spent so white people can watch cars drive around the track. If we want our armed forces to be more diverse we should keep recruiting away from NASCAR.
