Winston Salem, North Carolina (AP) —The organizer of the NASCAR race series in North Carolina apologized for violating the Governing Body’s ban on cars bearing the Navy flag decals in last weekend’s race.
According to the Winston Salem Journal, the flag was found in Riestimpson’s car at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston Salem on Saturday night.
Truck spokesman Gray Garrison said truck officials must have missed the flag and said that if Stimpson races again, he will make sure the car has no symbols.
Stimpson said he is likely to race again at Bowman Gray Stadium this season and has not put decals on his car.
The track is owned by the city of Winston Salem and will be home to Winston Salem State University football in the fall.
NASCAR all raced in June last year after a notable incident in the Talladega Speedway, Alabama, where a garage pull-down rope rope was found in a garage assigned to NASCAR’s only black Baba Wallace. A series of drivers who banned NASCAR images on all tracks covering the level. After the investigation, the FBI said the rope has been on the garage door rope since October 2019 and Wallace has not been targeted.
