NASCAR has been doing their best to alienate their loyal fan base over the years.
But of everything they have done, this has to be one of the dumbest moves in professional sports history.
And this might be the final nail in the coffin for NASCAR after they tell their base to shove it.
Just twenty years ago, NASCAR used to be one of the prime sports in America.
Fans were filling the stands shoulder to shoulder.
2002 Daytona 500
Jeff Gordon leads the field to the restart on lap 196 & calamity ensues when Michael Waltrip spins & Sterling Marlin tags Gordon’s fender. Marlin is penalized for “working on his car” during the red flag & Ward Burton gets his sole Daytona 500 victory.#NASCAR pic.twitter.com/vRTRWTD1k7

But now they can barely get anyone to show up to the biggest races of the year.
Well, the fans didn’t.
NASCAR left their fan base behind.
NASCAR decided to stop caring about racing and instead started focusing their energy on promoting the Left’s woke agenda.
Remember when NASCAR banned the Confederate flag at racing events?
Well, that in itself alienated half of their old fans.
And then NASCAR started to promote race-baiting drivers like Bubba Wallace, which drove countless other fans away from the league.
Nothing will drive conservative fans away faster than claiming that a garage handle is a noose in a fake news hate crime hoax.
The Bubba Wallace fake noose story got more attention by the press than John Durham’s revelations about Hillary spying on Trump. pic.twitter.com/Vnh0wWEgHC

But of everything NASCAR has done, this might be the act that finally does them in for good.
We all know that June brings an onslaught of rainbow LGBT flags from woke corporations.
But many were in shock to see NASCAR jump to be one of the first to push the radical woke pride movement on their fan base.
NASCAR tweeted a rainbow image with the caption, “As we celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, we acknowledge that recent actions have not aligned with NASCAR’s mission to be a welcoming sport for all.
We remain steadfast in our commitment to create a more inclusive environment — in our workplaces, at the race track & in the stands.”

Just another reminder that NASCAR cares more about the woke left-wing agenda of its executives and corporate sponsors than their own fan base.
