  1. If he’s not a racist, why does he only stand up for “black”people? Many “white” people feel they have suffered police brutality, but he doesn’t stand up for them. NASCAR has let his head swell so much he thinks he’s in charge now

  2. He is just trying to get attention, he can’t get any with his no talent driving skills so just play the race card and look at me attitude.

  3. Who made you the spoke person for NASCAR! You have done enough to mess up nascar . Just stop!Start learning how to drive! And learning you are not all that
