 WASHINGTON (AP) - The military and NASCAR will drive on together.
The House on Wednesday rejected an effort by Reps. Jack Kingston and Betty McCollum to trim $72.3 million from a $608 billion defense bill that the military spends on sports sponsorships to attract recruits.
The measure had targeted the money the National Guard spends to sponsor Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR's most popular driver, as well as IndyCar Series driver JR Hildebrand. It also would have cut money for other military sponsorships from fishing to the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
The amendment to the fiscal 2013 defense spending bill failed on a vote of 216-202.
It was a test of lawmakers' resolve to cut federal spending in response to the trillion-plus deficit.
