Brian France Confederate Flag NASCAR

Wants to reduce flag flown by fans

27 Jun, 2015

France reiterates the sport’s policy preventing the use of the flag in any official capacity:

In all areas that NASCAR controls on a given race weekend, the flag has no presence,” France said. “We have been clear in support of this position throughout our industry and to those across the country who have called for the eradication of the Confederate Flag.

He also says the sport is looking into how it can reduce the flag’s presence among fans who might fly it in the infield.

We will be as aggressive as possible to disassociate NASCAR events from an offensive and divisive symbol. We are working with the industry right now to achieve that goal.
