NASCAR Then And Now

The CEO of NASCAR has endorsed Donald Trump.....just as his grand father endorsed George Wallace. The Charlotte Observer has the story:

The elder France’s endorsement (in 1972) also came at a time when there was only one black driver on NASCAR’s top circuit. Wendell Scott, who was posthumously inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame last year, repeatedly was turned away at the Darlington (S.C.) track, routinely faced insults by fans and drivers and, in the only race he won, was denied Victory Lane and announced as the winner hours later after a “scoring error.” There have been only two black drivers in NASCAR’s top series since Scott.
