NASCAR officially has banned the Confederate flag from all events and properties, and some viewers are clearly not happy with NASCAR’s recent stance.
Prior to the now-postponed Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday, several cars displayed the flag while lining the boulevard outside the race track in Lincoln, Ala., per ESPN. A plane was seen flying over the race track towing both a Confederate flag and a sign reading: “Defund NASCAR,” according to FOX Sports’ Bob Pockrass.
