NASCAR Green Commercial

The Irwin Tools Night Race took place this last Saturday (8/23/14) at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, TN.  [Joey Logano was first to cross the finish line.]  The race was aired live on ABC TV network.

While not paying attention during one of the commercial breaks, my ears perked up at the words "eco-friendly" over the background of some up-beat music.

NASCAR ran a 30-sec spot about the "eco-friendly" achievements that have been made through NASCAR Green initiatives.  For the time and resources to be used to have this air to fans ACROSS THE COUNTRY is a huge step both for NASCAR and green sports.  Bravo, NASCAR, bravo.  Your leadership is admirable.
