Winston Cup Racing is the most visible tobacco industry sponsorship in the country.
R-J Reynolds of North Carolina reportedly puts 25 to 30 (m) million dollars into motorsports advertising and promotion, and is the primary sponsor of NASCAR's Winston Cup series.
Winston billboards and giveaways are prominent at most race tracks.
Yesterday, NASCAR released a statement saying the company feels it's too early to tell what the agreement will mean to racing.
It also referred to NASCAR's 30 year relationship with R-J Reynolds as "mutually beneficial."
