Confederate Flag Joie Chitwood III NASCAR

Daytona race flag exchange

30 Jun, 2015

NASCAR is exchanging fan’s Confederate flags with American flags at the Daytona race this weekend. Daytona President Chitwood announces the race will not ban Confederate flags since fans had already purchased tickets for races, but anyone wishing to part ways with their Confederate flag will be offered an American replacement.

For us, we’re celebrating the American flag this weekend. It’s our nation’s birthday. So, fans who would like to fly the American flag, we’ll trade with you on whatever flag you have. We want you to celebrate that flag this weekend.
