The auto racing industry has formed "A Coalition for Entertainment in Sports Sponsorship" to research efforts by government agencies and other groups that are in support of outlawing cigarette companies from auto racing, according to Ira Teinowitz and Jeff Jensen in AD AGE. While the Justice Department has yet to address auto racing, officials from the sport are staying abreast of the issue.
