A new dimension has occurred in the NASCAR’s cup series as the use of Confederate flags is totally bans during and after any car races or events. The car racing’s governed made it know on Wednesday.
No doubt, Confederate flags are ban outright in car races or events no going back.
“The presence of the Confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry,” NASCAR said in a statement on its website hours ahead of its race Wednesday night in Martinsville, Virginia.
“Bringing people together around a love for racing and the community that it creates is what makes our fans and sport special. The display of the Confederate flag will be prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties.”
According to Bubba Wallace, NASCAR’s black driver calls for the banning of the confederate flag, saying they disagree with the racist symbolism the flag carries, this week. But, Martin Truex Jr., Joey Logano, and Denny Hamlin, they all refused to take a hard stance on the matter.
However, NASCAR had removed all guidelines requiring all team members to stand for the national anthem.
