AUTO RACING/Cigarettie issue smolClers •FromPaget $10 million of sponsorship in Winston Cup racing alone) is not to encourage young peo- ple to start smoking, but to convince adult smokers to use their brands. That's long been the debate, except that now Clinton is using the issue during his re- election campaign and has promised swift ac- tion. "As of today we're not doing anything dif- ferently than we were a month ago or a year ago," Winston Cup Series Public Relations Di- rector Chris Powen said. "We don't know that say, a President Dole would push torward with these regulations in the same manner that President Clinton has." Clearly, this ordeal has the racing commu- nity fuming. The always outspoken Rusty Wallace sug- gested during a nationally televised Victory Lane interview last week that Democrats "can shove this [his fist]" and encouraged people to vote for Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole. Driver Robby Faggart's No. 02 Chevrolet is decorated entirely in campaign slogans this weekend. The names Dole and Kemp are plastered in huge letters on the side panels, hood and trunk of the car, along with smaller advertisements for House Speaker Newt Gin- gnch, and senators Strom Thurmond (South Carolina) and )esse Helms (North Carolina). And of course, there's a plug for NAS- CAR's King, Richard Petty, a Republican who is running for secretary of state in North Car- olina. Unfortunately for that contingent, Faggart crashed the car Friday before qualifying, then totaled it in Saturday morning's practice, so it won't be in the race. "My dad raised tobacco, his dad did, 1 even did in high school and used that money to buy my first race car," two-time Daytona 500 winner Sterling Marlin said. "Personally, I don't smoke and 97 percent of the drivers don't, but this is supposed to be the United States and you an do what you want. Tobac- co is legal." Clinton's plan Most significant of the FDA regul9tions . proposed by President Clinton tot,would, directly affect NASCAR racing: ,  Ban dgarette brand-name sponsorship , , of sporting events as well as Individual teams or race cars. Tobacco companles '~ ~~ oould sun supply aponsoraNp under their corporate name.  Prohibit clgarette.brand names on hats,'' -_ T-shlns and gym bags. ~ - - ti Umlt eli outdoor and In-store cigarette . cads to bladc-and-whNe text only except In _-adult-only tad@tes. - . It appears the drivers are united on this issue. Not a single one interviewed in the ga= rage this weekend saw,this controversy as anything less than a threat to their livelihood. Or at least they wouldn't admit to dissension. Most said they view the legislation as tnisdi- rected interference. And it's as much about business to them as it is moral +rectives. Truth be told, only two of the 45 regular Winston Cup drivers are actu4y smokers, Dick Trickle and Kyle Petty, why prefers ci- gars to cigarettes. 7. The reaction is hardly surprising. After all, stock car racing was born and has flour- ished in the Carolina tobacco ~ountry and those involved in this sport are tercely'loyal to its roots. Even if another type: of company offers to step up and offer the million-dollar sponsorship, the NASCAR worlo beUeve's' it would be a slap in the face to;lts longtime associate, RJ• Reynolds. The time frame for implementation of Clinton's new rules ranges from six months to two years. And tobacco companies and their marketing arms already have filed suit to stop implementation, leaving the imntediate future of Winston's involvement unknown. "You don't want to sound like you don't ~ care about all this and you also don't want to „ panic," NASCAR spokesman Kevin Triplett 10 said.

Marijuana has been illegal foryears, but hundreds of thousands of children experi- ment with the drug every year. Billions have been spent trying to slow the flow of cocaine, heroin and other illegal drugs into the country, with only limited success. What we teach our children in the very earliest stages oftheirdevelopment lays the groundwork for every decision they will make throughout their tives.

"And, in any event, if It.does happen, it's a long way down the road. Two yeare at the least, the way the edict Is written. After that, IL's fn the hands of the court." Graham Light, senior vice presl- dent of drag racing's National Hot Rod Assn„ also sald It was prema- ture to be disccussing the posslbility, of a Winston replacemenl, but that the growth of drag racing would assure hs future success, "We certainly have no one to plug In If Winston were to leave us," Light eaid. "It is not In our plans to have anyone else. We feel we have both benefited from our 22 years together, and we hope to conlinue that relationship." Despite that bravado attitude, many behind the ecenes are con- templating the possibility of maJor changes [n the structure of motor- sports. The most significant would be the elimination of the Winston name from the stock car and drag racingserlee. How does McDonald's Cup sound? Mclbnald'e, "the official quick- service restaurant of NASCAR and the National Hot Rod Aesn," is the name most mentioned ae a poten- tial sponsor. McDonald's, which has more than 11AW outlets In the United States, eponsore a stock car driven by former Winston Cup champion Bill Elliott In NASCAR and drag racers owned by former Washing- ton Redekin coach Joe Gibbs and ~ driven by Cory McCtlenathan, Crua Pedregon and Jim Yates In the NHRA. 'The people at R,J. Reynolds have been partners with us for 25 years and it would not be very polite to be talking about the possibility of replacing them.' 10NNORIfFIN SeMamanagerofcorporateconununicadonsfwNASCAR "At this point, It's ao speculative that It doesn't mean anything, but there'a a good reason why McDon- ald's has been mentioned," eald David Paru, McDonald's director of motorsports marketing. "We have had a good, solid history of motor- sports marketing with NASCAR for seven years, and for four years with the NHRA" Others suggested as possible sponsors included DuPont Auto- molive Finishes, whose cornpeli- tor, PPG Industrles, sponsors the $2.75-million point fund for the CART brand of Indy cars; Good- year, which supplies all the tlrea for Winston Cup racingl Union 76, the official fuel of NASCARI Val- voline, the official fuel of CART/ Castrol, sponsors of drag racer John Force and Dan Gurney's To- yota race cara; Coca-Cola, Kodak, Sears and Anheuser-Busch. Anheuser-Busch, the St. Louis brewery that sponsors NASCAR's Busch Grand National series, is not considered a viable candidate be- cause there is a belief In the motorsports world that once to- bacco In eliminated from racing sponsorship, the next target may well be ak.ohdic producta Because Winston and Marlboro have such high proBles, there is a public perception that racing is permeated by tobacco products. But that Is not the ease when It comes to Indlvldual tesms and otherracmgeeries. Only three of 42 starters In NASCAR's Southern 500 two weeks ago were tobacco-spon- .ored: Jimmy Spencer's\S~mokin' Joe's Thunderbird by CameTR[cky Craven's Chevrolet by Kodiak smokeless tobacco, and Robert Preasley'e Chevrolet by Skoal smokeless. And outside of the three Marl- boro cars driven by AI Unser Jr., Paul Tracy and Jan Magnussen, only two other entries In the CART ass Indy car race last Sunday at La- guna Seca were tobacco spen- sored-Mauriclo Gugelmin by Hollywood, a Braalllan cigarette, and Greg Moore by Player's, a Canadian cigarette. "We have no eontingency plan for sponsorship of the Penske team by anyone other than Marlboro," said Welt Coarnecki, Penske executive vice president. "We have a contract with Marlboro and we expect to fulfill that contract. It has been our team sponsor since aS89 and we have heard nothing to ohange It." The euccess of the Penske team-until this eeason when Il went without a win for the first time since CART was formed in ag7S-would assure that it would have little difficulty In obtaining a eponsor In the event of a cigarette blackout. Sponsors of winning Penske cars In the past Include Norton, Gould, A.B. Dick, Herta, Cummins, Mobil. Sunoco and MS[er. The Philip Morris Co.'s Marlboro brand has also been the sponsor since 1987 of the 500-mile Indy car race annually at Roger Penske's Michigan Internatfonal Speedway, Since US Tobacco withdrew Its sponsorship of AJ. Foyt's Indy, cars after the Indianapohs 500, there are no tobacco-sponsored entries In the new ]ndy Racing League. All 31 Winston Cup races have title sponsors and only one, the Winston Select fi00 at Talladega, Ala., Is tobacco sponsored. Among the diverse sponsors are Good- wrench GM, Traneouth Financial, Food City, Goody'e, SaveMart Stpermarketa Tyson Holly Farms, AC-Delco and Diua Lube, And only the Winston Select Flnals, aeason-ending event of the NHRA aeaeon at Pomona, and the Winston Select Invitational all- atft event at Rockingham, N.C., are tobacco-sponsored national dreg racing events. The Marlboro 500 at Michigan is the only CART or Indy Racing League event linked to tobacco. Kod, a Brown & Williamson Tobacco Co. cigarette, Is a team sponsor In the Indy Lights series with plans to move up to Indy cars. "We don't think [the FDA pro- posal is) going to change anything In the near term," said Bert Kre- mer Jr., aponsorship manager for B&W. "There is a phase-in period of at least two years. And the tobacco Industry will ardently challenge this proposal." Other series sanctioned by NAS- CAR are thriving without tobacco sponsorship. They Include the Busch Grand National, Craftemen Truck, Featherlite Southwest Tour, Reb-Cn Northwest Tour and Slim Jim All Pro. "The way the measure Is writ- ten, It would permit corporate sponsorship, so we could change the Winston CStp to the R.J. Reyn- olds Cup," eakl one RJR spokes- man facetiously. ]f any segment of molursports could be hurt by a ban on tobacco advertising and eponsorship, It would be the small stock car tracks such as Orange Show Speedway in San fiernaMino, Cajon Speedway In EICajon and Mess Marin Raceway in Bakersfield that participate in the Winston Racing Seriea They re-. celve support /n the mnstructbn of seoreboatds, advertising and other benefits from Winston, which also contributes $725,000 In prize money for indivldual track, district and national champions. "The Winston Racing Series ie the grass roots of stock car racing." esid Andy Hall, NASCAR direetor of public relations.'That'e where we get our drivers of the future, the Earnhardte and the Pettys. W e sanctioned those small tracks be- fore Winaton, and I am sure we would continue to do so If we lost Winston. However, that is not a development we anticipate." Then there was the fan who suggested that the answer toelimi- nating tobacco from the Winston Cup,Ahe Winston Racing Series and Winston Drag Racing-with- out losing the Identlty-would be to sign a contract with Winston Tires, which was once a racing sponsor when the late Sam Win- eton started the business.
