FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - NASCAR could take a closer look at how it approves future sponsors after the National Rifle Association became the title sponsor of the Sprint Cup race at Texas during a national debate over gun rights.
In a statement Friday, NASCAR says it has no official position on gun rights and that its business is to bring people together for entertainment, not political debate. It said the NRA's sponsorship at Texas fit within existing parameters, but ``this situation has made it clear'' current circumstances need to factored into the approval process moving forward.
While ``race entitlement partnerships'' are agreements directly between the track and the sponsor, NASCAR reserves the right to approve or disapprove those sponsorships.
