    "Racist" Car Banned From Appearance At NASCAR Race

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR and track officials canceled plans to have pro golfer Bubba Watson drive the car from the television series “The Dukes of Hazzard” at Phoenix International Raceway because of concerns about a negative reaction to an image of the Confederate flag.
    Watson was scheduled to drive the 1969 Dodge Charger, known as the “General Lee,” on a parade lap before the March 4 Sprint Cup series race at Phoenix. The car has a large Confederate flag on its roof, just as it did when it appeared on the show.
    “The image of the Confederate flag is not something that should play an official role in our sport as we continue to reach out to new fans and make NASCAR more inclusive,” NASCAR spokesman David Higdon said in a statement Friday.
    Higdon said it was a joint decision by officials with NASCAR, the racetrack, and track ownership group International Speedway Corp.
    While the flag may not be welcome in an official capacity in NASCAR, it often can be seen flying from fans’ vehicles in racetrack infields.

    It's NASCAR for godssake!!! What is nascar without the rebel flag being flown somewhere in the crowd at an event. A lot of these races are in the deep south , that is there culture and damn proud of it I might ad. If political correctness doesn't stop now we will have a very boring world after a while. I don't know the fuss anyway no blacks are ever at nascar races are they. Let the blacks stay to there sports and good ole' boys to theres. Whites don't complain when blacks go to basketball games with dorags on do they? What about hockey games paint the ice a different color besides white also change the color of puck to white because white guys are smacking a black puck around a bad image indeed.

    Apparently NOT what it used to be, when the cars were built in Detroit USA and made from real STEEL.

    And The 1969 Charger was without a doubt one the greatest of them all .
