Fans are Angry That NASCAR Dropped the Trump Over Illegal Comments
What the heck is happening over at NASCAR?! They used to be as #merican as apple pie, the American flag, and tamales at Christmas!! Now they’re bowing to politically correct morons who probably don’t even watch NASCAR. First they banned the Confederate flag, and NOW they’re moving an event that would have been held at a Trump hotel over his comments!
@NASCAR fans are not happy over the politics of NASCAR. Confederate flag and dumping Trump.

On the same day one of its top sponsors called on NASCAR to take a stance against Trump, the motorsports series said it will not hold its season-ending awards ceremony at the Trump National Doral Miami.
“We looked at everything we saw coming down and what we heard from our sponsors and our partners and what we feel we should be doing, and that’s what led us to the decision today,” NASCAR spokesman David Higdon said Friday at Daytona International Speedway.

I think NASCAR forgot who their audience is. Banning the confederate flag and boycotting Donald Trump?

@NASCAR banning Trump now? The list of reasons to never come back to NA$CAR just keeps growing. You definitely lost me as a fan.

So, I see that the fools that run NASCAR are cowering regarding Trump's 'true' statements about illegal Mexicans. How small of them.

@NASCAR you are a weak and frail company removing support from Trump. It appears as though you are anti-American and support illegals.

Yeah dammit! I don’t even watch NASCAR and this is annoying me!!
Of course, there were a few idiots happy about it:
#NASCAR I am so proud of you for standing with what right! Boycott Trump!
