NASCAR statement regarding Indiana's recently enacted 'religious freedom' legislation

Statement from NASCAR Senior Vice President
and Chief Communications Officer Brett Jewkes on the Indiana Legislation

   DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 31, 2015) – “NASCAR is disappointed by the recent legislation passed in Indiana. We will not embrace nor participate in exclusion or intolerance. We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our sport and therefore will continue to welcome all competitors and fans at our events in the state of Indiana and anywhere else we race.”

  1. NASCAR needs to re-read the actual law and better learn the history of such laws - which have been passed in over fifteen states, was passed by the Clinton Administration, and which are merely reaction to attacks against religious beliefs.

    "Diversity" is a dead end, NASCAR. Worry about substance, not a myth.
