NASCAR Takes a Left Turn on Guns

Despite a largely Southern fan base, NASCAR has survived joining the mob out to eradicate symbols of the South while at the same time embracing racist sociopaths of politically preferred pigmentation. It will probably also survive siding with gun-grabbers. But you can expect its popularity to continue to decline.


K-Var, a retailer in outdoor and shooting sports products, reports that it was told it would need to edit/change an ad submitted earlier this year it had intended to be included in NASCAR’s official program. The problem, apparently, is that the K-Var ad included depictions of “assault-style rifles/sniper rifles.” Presumably, the offending firearm is an AK-variant manufactured by Arsenal.

“Assault-style” includes America’s Rifle, the AR-15 — an immensely popular model for sport and self-defense. “Sniper rifles” would include any rifles designed to be accurate over a long range — e.g., bolt-action hunting rifles.

NASCAR’s official media sales agent told K-Var (as well as other potential advertisers), that the racing organization is undergoing a “gradual shift in (its) position on guns,” …

Radicalized Democrats, who have signaled that they plan on a major gun grab if the 2020 elections go their way, will love the shift. NASCAR’s right-leaning fanbase will not.

NASCAR isn’t the first corporation to shoot itself in the foot by placing moonbattery ahead of its own customers.

We’ve seen Dick’s Sporting Goods, Levi Strauss & Co., and several banks decide they needed to offer their corporate support to the extremist anti-gun agenda. In the world of automotive entertainment, we’ve seen monster truck promoters determine that they don’t need to worry about offending law-abiding gun owners and supporters of the Second Amendment. And who can forget Yeti?

All of these businesses have made financially inadvisable decisions for the sake liberal “virtue” signaling. The foolishness in the case of NASCAR borders on suicidal. We aren’t talking about the NBA. The percentage of NASCAR fans who do not support the Second Amendment is likely to be miniscule.
