President Trump says that NASCAR is getting low ratings because it banned the confederate flag. Should NASCAR rescind its ban of the conferate flag on NASCAR events and properties? Since the percentage of minorities in America is growing I think this was a good move by NASCAR and will broaden their fan base.
Also, and not suprisingly, the president’s claim is, so far, incorrect.
But the ban of the Confederate flag and what happened at Talladega have not caused NASCAR’s “lowest ratings EVER!” as Trump claimed. According to FOX Sports, NASCAR viewership on the FOX networks is up 8% since returning from its coronavirus-related hiatus on May 17.
