No protests in NASCAR after warnings from executives

No protests in NASCAR after warnings from executives”

Some NASCAR team owners were quoted Sunday as saying they would not condone any drivers not standing for the national anthem before races. Period", Petty said. "If they don't appreciate where they're at ... what got them where they're at? "The United States." Petty confirmed with a reporter that he would fire employees who did not comply.

Several team owners said they would come down hard on any drivers who did not stand during the national anthem.

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)Many people booed the players who kneeled yesterday (which was a small percentage of total). But two prominent NASCAR owners have taken a much different approach.

"So proud of Nascar and its supporters and fans. These are fans who demand respect for our Flag!" he continued. So expect no protest in the auto racing world.

Richard Childress, another former driver and owner of Richard Childress Racing, said any protests from his team members would "get you a ride on a Greyhound bus".

No drivers, crew or other team members protested during the national anthem prior to a race at New Hampshire Motorspeedway.

Earnhardt's comments came after President Donald Trump advocated firing NFL players who choose not to stand for the national anthem.

"I believe in bringing people together, and respect and love and trust."
I think this sport has a certain way they look at things. Trump said in a Twitter post on Monday. Brady linked arms with teammates ahead of his game on Sunday.

No one moved, no one said anything, and everyone respected the flag, he said.

Numerous old-timers have left the sport over things that they believe ruin what the sport once was. If you don't agree, that is fine.

In response, National Football League owners took a unified stand against Trump's comments at the start of several games on Sunday. He also has suggested fans who are offended by the protests should boycott the NFL.

Earnhardt became further enmeshed in the debate when he responded to another tweet cautioning him on making visible comments. Every single player from the Steelers, except one, didn't even take the field during the anthem. The Steelers were the first of three teams to remain inside for the pregame ritual over the weekend.

For more than a year, NFL team owners have publicly OKed the decision of their players to kneel during the national anthem in protest.

The President of the United States just used a sport, which is watched by nearly all Caucasians, to try and make a point as to how a league and its participants should respect the flag and the country. I personally don't believe the anthem is ever the time to make any type of protest. "We celebrate the service men and women that have sacrificed to be a part of that".
