While NASCAR has allowed political paint schemes in the cars but then things might change as the sport is going to review the decision.

According to Adam Stern of Sports Business Daily, NASCAR is “in the early stages of discussing whether to ban political paint schemes”. One of the reasons for such a preliminary discussion to take place at this period is because of how things have unfolded in recent months. As per the same report, the Black Lives Matter paint scheme and Trump 2020 scheme are the two schemes that are leading NASCAR to such a discussion.

Bubba Wallace drove the No. 43 Chevrolet at Martinsville Speedway in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

A couple of weeks later,  Corey LaJoie’s No.32 Ford was sponsored by PAC supporting President Donald Trump’s re-election and the sponsorship includes 9 Cup Series races in total. Furthermore, Tim Viens will be driving CMI Motorsports’s No. 49 Truck with a Trump-Pence paint scheme for the rest of the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors season. This decision to allow such paint schemes

In the wake of the political paint schemes used for varying purposes and the growing frustration due to the “increasing polarization and controversies surrounding the sport”,  NASCAR is set to find some resolution.

  1. NASCAR is damning itself.
    Attendence has dropped ridiculously since 2008’s
    recession, and fans realized their prices were ridiculous so they stayed home afterwards.

  2. Basically, NASCAR is folding to the far left even though that isn’t where their fans are. Stick a fork in them. They’re almost done.

    Banning the Confederate flag was enough now political schemas… what’s next? They remove this the remove anything that supports any group…BLM, CANCER ETC. drive all the sponsorships out and NASCAR will go away permanently. It’s a right to Express.
