So this foray into motorsports sponsorship isn't as bizarre as it might at first seem, somehow.

The result was a string of endurance racing prototypes, a 1988 Indy 500 car, a short-lived "Dianetics Racing Team" NASCAR effort (its motto? "Ignite your potential") and possibly some racing motorcycles. Outside of the big series, it's all a bit sketchy, and even in the case of the NASCAR run, we're having a tough time figuring out how exactly things played out. Given Scientology's penchant for self-promotion, our guess would be not well, as we'd have all heard about it otherwise.
