    Didn't know they had that many fans show up at a race to be an issue.

    Their events, their rules. Not sure what fans they're trying to appease, but they are well within their rights.

    NASCAR just killing off their fan base. All the rule changes they did a couple of years ago put off a lot of fans. Nail in their coffin.

    I guess all the BLM and ANTIFA members will become their fan base now. Or not. Just want you to capitulate, then F you

    Screw NASCAR and I hope they just fold up and go away. They forget about the past and just pander to the present. I believe that NASCAR has just priced themselves out of a sport so screw them. Regards to all at Gt.

    Over the past decade or so, it has been amazing to watch groups attempt to commit suicide, completely unaware they are doing so. Hollywood. Journalism. NFL. Add NASCAR to the growing list.

    I thought they did this years ago. Or was it guns last time. Whatever it is, they either don't know their customers or they are trying to go out of business.

    EDIT: looks like 5 years ago they "asked" fans to not bring confederate flags. Now they are apparently telling them.

    I don't see a big deal.

    Don't like their move, don't give them your money.

    They are pandering to a group that is not their fan base or puts alot of money in their coffers. Forget who your money payers are and your business is tips up.

    Then they die as a business.

    The history of business is full of companies that do stupid things and begin to fail.

    The NFL for instance.

    Who cares, in effect, they’ve already banned white southern men anyway.

    I just read this in utter dumbfoundedness!

    The whole racing in circles was originally in The South ... with illegal alcohol runners three car lengths ahead of the Revenuers during the week and going fast and turning left on the weekends.

    It's a tradition and personally I have no gripe with the flags since I respect but don't go ape-poop over what it usta, did, now, or doesn't mean. It's just window dressing and adds color to the whole activity.

    Over-sensitivity over such miniscule factoids just irks me!
