A TikTok video from the NASCAR driver has brought some controversy
NASCAR driver Natalie Decker has stirred up the internet. On Saturday, she posted a video to TikTok. In the video, she hinted that NASCAR doesn’t support women.
View a screenshot of the video below.
The video opens with a caption: “POV: you sacrificed and worked your whole life to compete in this sport that feeds you and the public bullshit that they support women.”
The statement above is vague enough that it’s completely unclear if she means sponsors, fans or NASCAR itself. The lack of punctuation doesn’t help.
Behind the text above, Natalie was posted with a sad face.
The video, posted just a few hours ago brought a long list of negative comments. It’s currently the most popular topic on NASCAR Reddit.
Needless to say, the post has already been deleted.
She was a 2015 Drive for Diversity participant. The program helps launch careers for more diverse drivers.
Decker is now 25 years old. She made his NASCAR Truck Series debut in 2016. In 32 races, she’s collected 1 top-5 finish.
In 2021 and 2022, Decker ran select races in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Over 8 races, she has a best finish of 25th which came with Our Motorsports.
It doesn’t appear there’s any NASCAR plans yet announced for 2023. Decker has been an active streamer, specifically on iRacing.
