The US Army is leaving NASCAR at the end of the season, terminating its sponsorship of Stewart-Haas Racing, citing reallocation of its marketing budget.

The Army has been in NASCAR for 10 seasons, most recently as a sponsor for the No. 39 Chevrolet driven by Ryan Newman. Stewart-Haas says they are now pursuing a new sponsor.

The Army’s decision to pull out of NASCAR comes amidst continued debate in Congress over military sponsorship of sports.
