24 hours ago, much of the country had no clue who Ray Ciccarelli or what he did for a living. That all changed when he took to Facebook announced that he was quitting his career as a NASCAR truck driver after they banned the confederate flag and allowing anybody to kneel during the playing of the National Anthem.
In a post on his Facebook page, Ciccarelli called the decision “political BS,” and added that he doesn’t “believe in kneeling during Anthem nor taken ppl right to fly what ever flag they love.”
Ciccarelli concluded his post by stating that “everything is for SALE.”
That led to social media looking up his empty stats, zero wins, and just outright blasting him non-stop.
In a statement shared on Twitter, NASCAR revealed it has banned the use of the Confederate flag at all of its events going forward.
“The presence of the Confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry,” the statement reads. “Bringing people together around a love for racing and the community that it creates is what makes our fans and sport special. The display of the confederate flag will be prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties.”
