NASCAR announced the ban of the Confederate flag a couple of weeks ago, they did so when the race tracks didn’t feature any spectators. With NASCAR’s plan to bring back spectators in the race tracks, we will see out how the fans will really react to the ban and how NASCAR will cope with the ban. Today’s race at Talladega Superspeedway is set to allow 5,000 spectators.

Let it fly high love that
You can not erase history. Those who do are destined to repeat it.
Used to keep up with NASCAR all the time. Lost interest, just like with the NFL and NBA. Started to regain interest. Then NFL has players who take a knee during the National Anthem. So lost interest and respect for them again. So no NFL and I really don’t miss it. Ahhh, and now you have abolished the Confederate Flag. So guess what, won’t be watching you either. I’m just a regular guy who’s had to work for everything I have. So don’t even go down that rabbit hole. I’m talking about respect and southern heritage.
I’m with you 150per cent
good ,****on nascar and blubbering wallace ,,he is the ******pos
Nascar has went to far. I will never watch it again. Nor will I buy anything to support them again.
