Chrysler is cutting back 30% on its NASCAR spend, but will still honor its current contracts. Ford has said it's reducing its NASCAR fund by 20%, and GM says that it, too, will be doling out a smaller NASCAR allowance and letting track sponsorships lapse to go along with its getting out of the Yankees business. Even Toyota plans to spend less on NASCAR. No matter what, though, NASCAR isn't going anywhere -- after all, even if all of the car companies and all of the other sponsors left, the guys in the overalls could always race, you know... stock cars.
