The end is near. NASCAR has signed a deal with the EPA. Don't worry, the cars aren't being directly impacted yet, but you can bet this is only the first step to more and more "partnerships" down the road between the out of control government agency and the economy boosting, fossil fuel burning sport. 

President Obama’s eco-friendly EPA inked a green partnership deal with high-octane NASCAR Monday to promote recycling and environmentally-friendly products to the sport’s millions of fans.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, NASCAR will encourage fans to buy “sustainable concessions” at races, expand the use of “safer chemical products,” conserve water, reduce waste, promote recycling, push products approved by the EPA that have a small enviro footprint and encourage suppliers to get an “E3 tuneup” aimed at promoting sustainable manufacturing.

As if we don't have enough "go green" getting shoved down our throats already. If we drink green beer at NASCAR does that count?
