NASCAR no longer tolerating the use of Confederate flag-waving anywhere near its events, although, it will be up to the track securities to enforce the ban.
Sports Journalist Adam Stern on Monday gave new insight into NASCAR’s Confederate flag ban via Twitter, which the organization announced last week. Stern reported that track security will include the Confederate flag in the list of invalid items as they do the routine sweeps before, during & after all races. Any fan found with the flag in their possession either will be asked to take it down or leave the premises.
It will be difficult for track securities to keep their eyes on everyone inside the track. Fans will slip through the cracks. However, Adam Stern states below what will be the ultimate punishment for fans who refuse to obey the ban.
Take a look at Adam Stern’s report:
NASCAR track execs expect Confederate flag to just be added to list of things (like fireworks) that security already looks for during sweeps.
