NASCAR Driver Ray Ciccarelli Says He’ll Quit Because of Confederate Flag Ban at Races

Ray Ciccarelli, a part-time NASCAR truck series driver, has announced that he will be quitting the sport because NASCAR is banning the pro-slavery, pro-racist Confederate flag at all events.

Ciccarelli explained his tortured logic on a Facebook post, that he later deleted, notes CBS Sports:

Well its been a fun ride and dream come true but if this is the direction Nascar is headed we will not participate after 2020 season is over , i don’t believe in kneeling during Anthem nor taken ppl right to fly what ever 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—ing one group to cater to another and i ain’t spend the money we are to participate in any political BS!! So everything is for SALE!!
