Even though Winston poured tons of money into Nascar over the years, Nascar didn't seem too upset with their departure. I wonder if a cigarette company now wanted to get back into the sport whether Nascar would allow it. I would guess not. How soon they forget. Even though I've never been a smoker, I do believe in loyalty.
