    NASCAR went woke just like the NFL, NBA, NHL and all of the other “sports”. Fine, they can keep it and go there without my patronage. They already have the BLM car, it’s only a matter of time before they breakout the gay pride rainbow car.

    Was just there a few weeks ago on a track tour. unbelievable how much of an embankment pitch it is. You have to almost use your hands to climb up it. I only attend Whelen modified races.wouldn’t pay the admission price to go see some overpaid princesses, race corporate owned cars. But the track is really something to see.
