Perhaps realizing that he was about to put his name on the hood of a car that hasn't made a race in nearly four months, the campaign of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has decided to back out of the sponsorship game.

"The Obama campaign will not be sponsoring a car in the Sprint Cup series, though we will continue to look for ways to reach out to voters and convey Senator Obama's message of change," the campaign said in a press release.

According to a story by earlier today, Obama was prepared to be the primary sponsor of the #49 BAM Racing car entry for the early August Pocono race.

The #49 car last made a Sprint Cup start at Martinsville on March 30.
