NASCAR and the Economy The economy has had an effect on many industries with ties to our region, from banking to real estate, and NASCAR is no different. Many NASCAR teams based in Charlotte and across the country are facing lay-offs, sponsor trouble, and declining admissions. With NASCAR setting up shop in Charlotte for the next couple of weeks, we'll talk with some experts on the sport about how its faring and also about how the money troubles affect safety, testing and competition.
