NASCAR team owners have ZERO tolerance for disrespect of America: Here’s what will happen if you do


With NFL players opting to disrespect America on Sunday by refusing to stand for the national anthem or remaining in the locker room, not a single NASCAR driver or team member took a knee.

…not that race team owners would tolerate such unpatriotic behavior.

Pre-race ceremonies Sunday at the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series running of the ISM Connect 300 in Loudon, New Hampshire, was a spectacle of celebration and respect for America.

A display that earned the respect of President Donald Trump:

The race featured the standard invocation from a member of clergy, the singing of the national anthem and a military flyover:

While the NFL chose to align its brand with displays of disrespect for the country by millionaire players protesting oppression, with some team owners actually standing arm-in-arm with the coddles athletes, NASCAR owners offered a stark contrast.

A stance that earned NASCAR the label of “insular oddity in American sports culture” from USA Today — why not just come right out and call them white supremacists?

Richard Childress, the longtime team owner of the legendary driver Dale Earnhardt, was clear about his views on protesting the national anthem.

“It’ll get you a ride on a Greyhound bus,” Childress said, according to the Associated Press.

And he let his team know that “anybody that works for me should respect the country we live in. So many people gave their lives for it. This is America.”

Richard Petty, “The King” of NASCAR, took things a step further and will get plenty of reaction from the liberal media on Monday.

“Anybody that don’t stand up for the anthem ought to be out of the country. Period,” Petty said. “What got ’em where they’re at? The United States.”

The seven time NASCAR champion and now team owner was asked if an employee at Richard Petty Motorsports would be fired if they protested, he replied, “You’re right.”

But the truth is, teams are not likely to be faced with such controversy.

Team Penske told USA Today that they have “no policy” on the issue because it has never been necessary.
