    Autoextremist: Nascar's problem is our problem

    Here PDL AE rant of the week www.autoextremist.com
    NASCAR’S PROBLEM IS OUR PROBLEM.
    DateMONDAY, JUNE 22, 2020 AT 01:44PM
    By Peter M. DeLorenzo

    Detroit. CAUTION: For all of you out there with the attitude of “I should stick to cars,” I am not going to apologize for this column. And frankly, if it bothers you that I would deign to write something “off topic” well, I don’t frickin’ care what you think. You’re welcome to change the channel if you don’t like what I have to say.

    The news that a noose was found in Bubba Wallace’s garage at the Talladega Superspeedway Sunday night – before the rain-delayed NASCAR Cup race was scheduled to take place Monday afternoon – blew up the news cycle and deservedly so. Wallace, who drives for Richard Petty Motorsports, is the only African American driver who races full time at the top level of NASCAR. It was direct pressure by Wallace that led NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag at its tracks and events just two weeks ago. Anyone who knows anything about the history of NASCAR knows that this was a hugely transformative decision, as Confederate flags have been brought to its tracks and displayed by its fans for decades.

    Stick to cars, Peter. And you're right, nobody gives a damn about your political views. This goes beyond GMI guidelines, will probably be locked.

    I don't know maybe we should allow the FBI and authority's to have their investigation first before the stone casting begins, or do we need a reminder of the 2 Nigerian make America great again hat wearing trump supporters from Chicago? What is stupid are the talking heads clearly that have an ax to grind with the sport and it's fan base not even taking the 3 seconds to realize that no fans were allowed near the pits and garages. This was not a fan imo, it was either a track employee or worse a NASCAR team member! My guess would be a track employee or i'm at least hoping that is the case right now. Security is said to be pretty tight at this track so hopefully we will get some kind of conclusion to this.

    Agreed, can we stick to cars on GMI. Vette forum manages much better at keeping politics out of topics. Maybe they should disable the bot until they can teach it to stick to cars.

    And this is why you don't go full #@#@#@ as they would say in tropical thunder haha.

    The noose was nothing more then a garage door pull rope confirmed to have been in the garage since early 2019!

    And yeah I wont hold my breath to see the countless media talking heads who essentially blanketly called all Nascar fans racist to apologize as they never do.
