If you never heard of Ray Ciccarelli until earlier this week, you’re not alone.
The NASCAR truck series driver decided to leave the sport at the end of the season after the Confederate flag was banned from being displayed at events. Apparently, that didn’t sit well with Ciccarelli.

Ciccarelli had yet to win a race and wasn’t a household name. But people certainly were talking about him Wednesday and Thursday night. And, unsurprisingly, Twitter reacted appropriately.
NASCAR truck driver Ray Ciccarelli has never even won a race. Like the confederacy, he knows how to quit while he?s behind.

Honestly gotta respect Ray Ciccarelli for making his entire racing career an ode to the Confederacy by staunchly refusing to win EVER pic.twitter.com/LUxDADmimp

A moment of silence as #NASCAR mourns the loss of racin' redneck Ray Ciccarelli, who is going to take his Confederate flag, Hurt Feelings and zero wins and no poles in 18 races and go home to mama

Ray Ciccarelli is apparently 0-31 in Nascar. So, he's never done well with different races. #RayCiccarelli
