Aren't the tobacco companies going to be prohibited from sponsoring teams in a couple of years?



This is a little off-topic, but what do people think about Kenny's chances of winning another title? If Rossi doesn't crash as much this year...

Re: And the rest of the world too...

well, how is there still Winston drag racing?

i am not real sure on the exact stipulations on the advertising restrictions, but i think they are stupid.

Tobacco sponsership has been prohibited in the U.S. for a few years. As of 2006, it will also be banned in Europe. As it stands now, some countries in Europe ban it already. Ever noticed that Biaggi and Checa's leathers and helmet are different for some rounds where tobacco sponsorship is banned ? Even Haga last year in WSB when he had West as his sponsor changed his bike and leathers.

What I don't understand is why do Skoal and Kodiak get away with sponsoring NASCAR when that's a tobacco product ? No, I'm not a NASCAR fan, just don't understand the politics.
