Southern Man Don’t Need NASCAR Around Anyhow

International Speedway Corp. and Speedway Motorsports, Inc. (who, together, own most of the Sprint Cup Series tracks) have followed the lead of NASCAR and are asking race fans not to fly the Confederate battle flag during race events. It’s not an outright ban, it’s a “request to refrain.”

AWD knows who’s behind this betrayal of NASCAR’s fan base, The French family who created NASCAR and still own it today.

In a craven attempt to try to expand its fan base beyond its white Southern base, NASCAR may find that caving to the activists is going to cost it more ticket sales than it was ever going to gain by such a wimpy P.R. move.

”Obviously, we have our roots in the South, there are events in the South, it’s part of our history like it is for the country,” France told The Associated Press. ”But it needs to be just that, part of our history. It isn’t part of our future.”

When will people stop confusing tradition with the past. It is the continuity that anchors the values for understanding the present and the future.  One drifts with no basis of understanding or experience for guidance when one gives up tradition.

  1. Following the logic of banning things associated with racism of the past, they should be asking Democrats to refrain
    from attending their events. Of course,
    that would probably cost them…oh, maybe 5 or 6 lost ticket sales.

    : )

  2. AND: these A§$H*LES do it in the name of “being inclusive”!!!
    F*CK ‘EM WHERE IT HURT$!!!

  3. I think liberal NASCAR policies will eventually succumb to liberal progressive policies. NASCAR is not aligned with climate change and may one day find out where their true interest should have been.

  4. I don’t really think you should try to bully the South. They left once and I am sure they will get pissed enough to do it again.

  5. I’m not a huge Nascar fan but, I like a few races…..Daytona, Talledega, Martinsville, Dover, KC, Texas, Atlanta….they all seem to be in the south or pretty close to it…..I believe that they poked a hornets nest and your gonna see more Confederate battle flags then before….at least I hope so…

  6. I used to enjoy watching NASCAR on tv as a kid – Richard Petty, the Waltripps, Ricky Rudd,etc, even Dale Sr, that rat bastard.

    But the fun went out of it when Corporate America(tm) finally noticed our nice little sport down here and decided to suck the life out of it and suck the soul out of it and homogenize it and pasteurize that it would be dull and boring and noncontroversial enough that the marketing department faggots in Corporate Amerika would think that the leftist fucktards in the Northeast, Michigan & Illinois and the LeftCoast would be able to watch it.

    Liquor sponsors? Nope. Beer sponsors? Barely tolerated. Cigarette sponsors? Oh hell no!

    I’m waiting for a gay interracial couple with a mixed-race kid to pop up in a goddam Cheerios ad during Talladega before I’ll completely pull the plug on NASCAR. But I am damn close…..

  7. the Puerto Ricans hang their flag from the car’s rear view mirror.. so do the people from Jamicia.. So, why can”t I fly a schutzstaffel flag in my car!.. talk about discrimination..

  8. The most boring show on earth (tennis, soccer and golf are close seconds) appears to have rigged the races in favor a few rich grande owners and their quasi-popular drivers. The handwriting for NASCAR actually was their blatant publicity stunt of bringing on board that somewhat attractive female distraction in the guise of equality in racing?

  9. You mean you don’t enjoy watching a bunch of cars drive around in a circle
    for 3 or 4 hours? Can’t imagine why not.

    ; D

  10. If I had artistic and sewing talent, I’d whip up a Heterosexual Militia flag: the standard rainbow stripes upside down with a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike and with the caption
    DON’T PACK MY FUDGE

  11. EVERYONE should show up at the next big NECKCAR event with a Rebel Flag. The TV cameras, from any and all angles, could not help but capture a veritable sea of red Confederate battle flags. There would be no hiding the Vox Populi of the good ol’ boys and gals.

    That PC bullsh!t would be whisked away like a skydiver’s fart.

  12. NASCAR lost me when they allowed Toyota into their truck series. Toyota HQ is not in Detroit. But that’s just me
