MAN IN THE MIRROR: SPORTING NEWS’ Bob Pockrass wrote this is “not the time for a lot of congratulations and pats on the back for surviving another round with Congress.” It is time for NASCAR "to look in the mirror." Pockrass: "It’s time for the top executives in the sport to figure out not just why politicians are voting for the military to get out of motorsports but why major corporations also have cut back their spending in NASCAR.” Mica was among the “most notable to swing his support toward the amendment.” That should “send shivers down the spines of NASCAR officials at the sport’s headquarters in Daytona Beach.” NASCAR needs to “find ways to produce better results for sponsors and make even the most skeptical people take a second look” at the sport (SPORTINGNEWS.com, 7/19).
