NASCAR can suck my purple guy but that's another topic entirely, the take-away here is that this is the first time I've seen the term "sniper rifles" associated with "assault weapons". Despite their convictions otherwise, we all knew that the FUDD's bolt guns were going to be next....well here ya go!

"K-Var, a retailer in outdoor and shooting sports products, reports that it was told it would need to edit/change an ad submitted earlier this year it had intended to be included in NASCAR’s official program. The problem, apparently, is that the K-Var ad included depictions of “assault-style rifles/sniper rifles.” Presumably, the offending firearm is an AK-variant manufactured by Arsenal."
