    DC Solar Raided by FBI

    https://sports.yahoo.com/chip-ganass...175244545.html

    will this affect Indycar sponsorship? I know DC Solar has some sponsorship on Chips cars..

    The name DC Solar is redundant. Solar cells always produce direct current.

    What if it was Dick Clark Solar, and they just went for an abbreviation?

    It was supposed to be a joke, as in the total absurdity of naming a company after direct current.

    Chip Ganaasi Racing announced it was shutting down its Xfinity Series program last month due to a lack of sponsorship from DC Solar.

    Court filings show DC Solar still owes CGR $4.3 million.

    Other NASCAR entities it owes money to:

    International Speedway Corp. – $1,025,000

    Kansas Speedway – $750,000

    ISM Raceway – $750,000

    Richmond Raceway – $750,000

    Talladega Superspeedway – $750,000

    Freeman said the company is unaware of the “genesis of the government seizure,” but that DC Solar’s counsel had been told by the Department of Justice that the seizures related to alleged “investment fraud” and that the “government had seized the assets in order to prevent them from being dissipated and to compensate any victims of the alleged fraud.”

    They had a bunch of portable DC Solar lights set up in the parking lots at Darlington the last couple years. Gotta say they worked really well and Im sure the track likes the fact that they don't have to spend money on permanent lights for acres of land that needs lights 3 nights out of the year.

    Im sure we wont be seeing those lights in September if NASCAR doesn't get their taste.

    I'd bet you'll see MUSCO's portables next year if NASCAR and ISC don't get paid.
