NASCAR team owners comment on football players taking a knee
So why doesn’t this happen in NASCAR? Because you’d be taking the bus back home.
RCR: What would Richard Childress do for an employee that kneels? “Get you a ride on a Greyhound bus when the national anthem is over. I told them anyone who works for me should respect the country we live in. So many people have gave their lives for it. This is America,” the NASCAR team owner responded.
Petty: “Anybody that don’t stand up for the anthem oughta be out of the country. Period. What got ’em where they’re at? The United States,” Richard Petty stated in comments reported by the AP.
Penske: “It’s an issue we’ve never faced and don’t anticipate facing,” stated a rep for Team Penske.
