In response to the moves driver Ray Ciccarelli announced that he would be quitting NASCAR after the 2020 season had been completed.
As The New York Post reports:
NASCAR turned off some fans on Wednesday by announcing it was banning Confederate flags from all of its events. It also lost a driver.
In a Facebook post, Ray Ciccarelli wrote he was ending his NASCAR Truck Series career after this season because of the decision.
“Well its been a fun ride and dream come true but if this is the direction Nascar is headed we will not participate after the 2020 season is over,” Ciccarelli announced. “I don’t believe in kneeling during Anthem nor taken ppl right to fly whatever flag they love.
“I could care less about the Confederate Flag but there are ppl that do and it doesn’t make them a racist all you are doing is f–king one group to cater to another.”
