Trump 'proud of NASCAR' after slamming NFL

Richard Petty Says He'll Fire Anyone Who Protests During The National Anthem And In NASCAR He's Not Alone

No national anthem protests made prior to NASCAR race

Several team owners and executives had said they wouldn't want anyone in their organizations to protest.

As NFL players rose up en masse against Donald Trump and for racial justice on Sunday by sitting or kneeling during the national anthem, NASCAR owners made clear they would not put up with the same style of protest. "If they don't appreciate where they're at ... what got them where they're at?"

Richard Childress, who was Dale Earnhardt's longtime team owner, said of protesting, "It'll get you a ride on a Greyhound bus". "I told them anyone who works for me should respect the country we live in".

"I would sit down with them and say it's the wrong thing to do that, and many people, including myself, view it as an affront to our great country", he said. "This is America", Childress said.

Roger Penske (pictured above) has no policy on personal protests and he "does not anticipate" having to handle any protests.

Meanwhile, the period drama, which was scheduled to release on November 17, has been postponed to December 1. The movie's shoot went through a lot of difficulties.

NASCAR team owners warned racing teams over the weekend that any national anthem protesters will be fired.

"Period", team owner and retired driver Richard Petty said at the ISM Connect 300 in New Hampshire, where there were no protests. An worldwide audience of opinion makers, business leaders, and global organizations recognizes Ebeling as an expert. From kneeling, to joining arms and even not showing up for the anthem, National Football League teams and players had coordinated responses on Sunday.

This could be due to NASCAR owners issuing strong warnings to their crews and drivers that if they protest the national anthem, it will result in being fired.

The protest also received support in Major League Baseball where Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first player in the league to take part in the demonstration.
