NASCAR’s quest to separate the heritage from the hate

Nascar fights to promote diversity while keeping it’s heritage. While the Confederate flag in banned on cars and uniforms, patrons still wear this emblem to the racetrack. At the same time, Nascar is fighting to allow more minorities onto the track. But, there’s something for everyone at the racetrack. There’s a Duck Dynasty tent but, also a tent where children can learn through Nascar’s STEM program.

Key Takeaways:

  • The yellow flag signals caution, the red flag signals a stoppage, and the white flag indicates there’s only one lap remaining.
  • Once you enter the official racetrack grounds, which on this particular Sunday in April will host the Toyota Owners 400, these flags become larger and more prominent.
  • The crowd practically holds its collective breath and the tension builds until finally, after what feels like hours, the green flag is waved.

“The sport desperately wants to be able to cater to its blue-collar base and capitalize on their nostalgia for the good ol’ days while also embracing progress.”
