NEWARK, New Jersey – Multi-time Grammy award winning musician Taylor Swift called out IMSA and Scott Atherton during her acceptance speech after winning Video of the Year during the VMAs last night.  Swift has been an outspoken advocate with her belief for manufacturer rights, saying IMSA’s Balance of Performance is killing the careers of engineers and race strategist who build and support race cars.  Swift has organized a petition in an effort to bring her BoP worries in front of IMSA, a petition she believes Scott Atherton is ignoring.

It now has half a million signatures, which is five times the amount that it would need to warrant a response from the IMSA and Mr. Atherton,”  Swift said, then looked at her wrist as if to gesture she was checking the time on a watch.
