    They ended sponsorships with the NHRA at the end of 2009. They weren't involved in race teams this year....

  10. I think you're missing the real point of the OP. He is actually subtly bring up Scott Davis's compensation. I doubt if he cares about the NHRA, he's just hung up on the compensation level of our executives. He has posts all over BC compalining how the $43.00 an hour the airline mechanics make should be raised because the CEO is getting more. I WILL go on record and state that his arguments are actually deeper than this, but I still believe his point was to bring up the LTIP and not inform about the NHRA.

    "UPS is part of the world's fastest motorsports attraction as the Preferred Carrier of NHRA. UPS provides Trackside Services at all Full Throttle race venues throughtout the race season."

    when was the the last time UPS had a "profitable" or at least "benificial" advertising campaign....Mr. Whiteboard has over-extended his long-haired run
    Why is it that major corporations other than UP (no S) can come up w/campaigns that the populace remembers..and it benefits the company

    The olympics was a good idea back in 96 when it was in Atlanta, & good to get name out overseas when we were starting to to a profit there after many investments & not much return. The Nascar was a great idea also since it is so popular in this country.{ I would rather watch grass grow} But I believe it paid off.The whiteboard guy was stupid & WHAT CAN BROWN DO FOR YOU worked well.How many time did we hear that in a day:angry: But we should go back to THE TIGHTEST SHIP IN THE SHIPPING BUSINESS !! I believe this really showed the customers{remember them Atlanta ?} what it took to drive the business !

    Now if they dump NASCAR, maybe they can afford to wash the package cars in our center more than once evey 7 weeks.

    Isn't it amazing that back in the day we used to wash the cars everyday and still found a way to make a profit!!!

    I think nascar is losing its' appeal now that it is the "Jimmie Johnson Show". What did it for me was when Johnson passed the leader before the start/finish line on a restart and wasn't penalized for it as others have been. Just like UPS....they bend the rules the way they want, when they want. I've lost all respect for "the powers that be" in both cases.

    As to whether or not they should drop their sponsorship.....birds of a feather flock together. No skin off of my nose. OK...enough of the cliches.
