Realize exactly what the problem is and fix the problem once it is discovered.

Should fans be allowed to show their southern heritage at tracks?
By the completion of the redevelopment, Daytona will have 101,000 permanent (and wider) seats, twice as many restrooms and three times as many concession stands. But NASCAR’s demographics have changed.
“This is the United States of America”. It’s pure country. I’ve been a NASCAR fan all my life.
“The fact they come right out of the garage to us brings a freshness and a familiarity”, Lazarus said.
The problem here, in my opinion, is overreaction. She doesn’t see the flag as having anything to do with race; it’s about the history of the South and the sport.
Busch missed the first 11 races this season following his Daytona crash in the Xfinity Series season opener, but NASCAR granted him a waiver that would make him Chase eligible with a victory and a top-30 finish in points.
He initially thought NASCAR was banning the banner and didn’t display it this week.
“It’s an absolute shame that it’s come to this”, a NASCAR fan said. These are the types of things you see at this type of race. No one is feeling discriminated against by this flag. It’s just like trying to outlaw guns. Some suggest that NASCAR’s policy of being all-inclusive is being achieved by excluding some longtime and loyal fans. “I think they’ve done that”. Not long after she parked between Turns 1 and 2 over the weekend, she raised it above her camper, on top of the American flag. “It’s our nation’s birthday”, DIS President Joie Chitwood told reporters Tuesday, adding that “we’ll really have to look at where that other flag goes, because it doesn’t have a place in our sport”. I knew what was going on and never really got invested in any team that traded for me.
Honestly, that would be like going to a gay pride rally and getting raging that the rainbow flag somehow offended you. That’s just the way I grew up. The fan favorite will attempt to win his second consecutive restrictor-plate race after taking the checkered flag at Talladega on May 3. If it became a problem, then NASCAR should take appropriate action.
When the race finally began, and the field circled the track waiting for the green flag, reigning NASCAR champion Kevin Harvick made note of the unusual start time by wishing his crew a good evening before correcting himself to morning. The world is still struggling to recover from the mass shooting at the historical Charleston church and NASCAR should indeed take note of that without hurting their fan base in the process.
And by doing so has once again demonstrated in his leadership role the corporate adage: “Do as I say – not as I do”. The next-to-last thing they need are fights that may break out among pro- and anti-Confederate flag factions. “But I’m also really excited about calling this race next February”.
The facilities vowed to have the most “welcoming environments in all of sports and entertainment”.
“I’m glad we’re halfway decent at it, but it’s still always frustrating when you have to rely on what everybody else does”.
Let’s be honest here.
NASCAR, with a deep-routed interest in the South, is faced with a hard task. Sure, it’s not ideal.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series visits its first repeat track of the season this Sunday for the Coke Zero 400 powered by Coca-Cola at Daytona worldwide Speedway.
