    I feel pretty indifferent about the decision but am pretty amused how many people miss the irony....and how that is a reflection of how easily Approved Narratives can replace historical fact...

    The sport was created by moonshiners who modified their cars to outrun federal agents (hence the emphasis on "stock" vehicles)... Local races would be held to see which moonshiner could boast the fastest car and these became the early races of the NASCAR circuit..

    The Confederate flag became a common symbol of the sport because the entire sport was based on acts of defiance against fat bureaucrats and the tax man in Washington DC.  It is literally a big middle finger to the Feds.

    In effect, there is actually a kindred spirit with those carrying "F-- the Police!" signs last week.... if only more people had the ability to understand the concept of common cause instead of getting lost in skin color....

    It should be a good thing.  They may be able to attrack new fans who felt uncomfortable with the old rule.

    No it is not a good decision.  They are alienating much of their fan base.  I am boycotting NASCAR.
