Fall Race at Talladega to Get New Name: The UAW-Ford 500

From the AP:
The fall NASCAR race at Talladega Superspeedway has signed a multi-year sponsorship deal with the United Auto Workers and Ford Motor Co.

The Oct. 2 race will be called the UAW-Ford 500, track and company officials announced Tuesday.
So does this mean that the pit crews will go on strike and the cars will break down halfway through the race?
