NASCAR was started by moonshiners. NASCAR is supposed to have it's roots in the South, yet they're apologizing for the confederate flag like scared little Yankee sorority girls! Haven't they ever heard of a DISCLAIMER?? That car has as many fans as NASCAR!

It is very sad when closed minded people take it upon them self's to ban a symbol of america. The confederate flag is an american flag representing the confederate states of america it was never made to be a hate or raciest symbol and the civil war wasn't about slavery it was about unfair taxation and laws That is why the south took a stand against the federal government get over it all you haters the general lee is an american TV icon and if it wasn't for the southern states and what there represented there wouldn't be a NASCAR race series today It really sickens me to see that flag being used as a symbol of hate and raceism

Can't you tell that NASCAR has been trying to shed it's "hillbilly" image. They want to attract the boys with all the money. You know, the ones that buy the suites. Some day it's all going to blow up in their faces. There is nothing wrong with the confederate flag other that what a hand full of people want to label as racist.

Good for NASCAR in banning the General Lee from competition unless the owner whitewashes the Confederacy Flag from the roof. Consoling the rednecks may be tough. They'll rebel by pissing on the track.

The dude from oceanside probably went to some elite eastern school loaded with liberal profs that told him the confederate flag was a sign of racism and being the idiot he seems to be, he believed it.

Krapinski is on every thread that has a hint of southern living spouting his co*ksucker off about the south. I really believe he wishes he was southern, but he's not and never will be and he just cannot accept it lmmfao!!
