Scientology sponsoring NASCAR--posted by Tony Garcia on 6/14/2006

I find this disturbing.
The Church of Scientology is spreading its gospel to NASCAR, starting in Irwindale.The end of the world MUST be near.
The religion that counts actor Tom Cruise and other Hollywood luminaries among its followers now backs a La Verne stock car driver, Kenton Gray, who competes in one of NASCAR's developmental series at the Irwindale Speedway.
Gray, 35, hopes to qualify for his next race June 24 in the super-late-model class in a car sponsored by Bridge Publications, which publishes the best-selling book, "Dianetics," by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.
The hood of Gray's No. 27 Ford Taurus is similar to the book's cover, with "Dianetics" emblazoned across an erupting volcano, and his new team is called the "Ignite Your Potential" Dianetics Racing Team.
