NASCAR just betrayed their fans.
They basically implied they don’t want their business.
Now NASCAR is paying the price for their betrayal, and it could cost them everything.
For years, NASCAR has been wildly popular among traditional, patriotic, blue-collar Americans.
NASCAR’s fan base is renowned for being far more right, a majority being in the lower to middle-class demographic, than any other major American sports leagues.
The NBA can get away with being “woke” since their fan base is more diverse and often leans much harder to the left.
But when NASCAR betrays blue-collar America, it’s going to get ugly.
NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace recently went on a full-on woke tirade, virtually alienating the very fans NASCAR depends on for business.
According to the Independent Journal Review, “Bubba Wallace, the controversial NASCAR driver best known for a ‘noose’ that wasn’t a noose, does not care what racing fans think about a leftward drift in the traditionally blue-collar sport.”
“On Thursday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, Wallace spoke to media members about NASCAR’s efforts to promote DEI – diversity, equity and inclusion.”
Wallace said: “I’ve always said there’s three types of people: the ones that will accept change, the ones that are on the fence about change and the ones that will never change.”
“You can never get to the minds of the people that will never change, so we don’t really focus our energy on those people.”
Wallace effectively told a huge portion of NASCAR fans to stop watching NASCAR if they don’t support his “diversity, equity, and inclusion” agenda.
The Independent Journal went on to expose Wallace’s history as being a woke liar.
“Wallace made headlines as a ‘hate-crime’ victim by claiming that someone had left a ‘noose’ in a garage that had been assigned to him for a race at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama.”
“An investigation later showed that the ‘noose’ was actually a pull-down rope used for closing the garage door, and had been there for months before Wallace was assigned the garage.”
“Apparently, this Jussie Smollett-level fraud did not humble the outspoken driver.”
NASCAR might claim they can’t control what Wallace says, but their silence on the matter has been deafening.
They seem intent on alienating their fans – the very fans who originated the “Let’s Go Brandon” by chanting “F*** Joe Biden” after a race on national TV.
But if Bubba Wallace is the new face of NASCAR, they can count on losing everything… and it will be far worse than Bud Light.
