MIS joins NASCAR in discouraging confederate flag


Michigan International Speedway has joined 30 other NASCAR tracks in asking its fans and race goers to keep the confederate flags home. MIS and the 30 tracks across the country have signed their allegiance with NASCAR when it comes to the flag. They will offer an exchange program where fans can swap for an American flag.

NASCAR Statement:

“As members of the NASCAR industry, we join NASCAR in the desire to make our events among the most fan-friendly, welcoming environments in all of sports and entertainment.

“To do that, we are asking our fans and partners to join us in a renewed effort to create an all-inclusive, even more welcoming atmosphere for all who attend our events. This will include the request to refrain from displaying the Confederate Flag at our facilities and NASCAR events.

“We are committed to providing a welcoming atmosphere free of offensive symbols. This is an opportunity for NASCAR Nation to demonstrate its sense of mutual respect and acceptance for all who attend our events while collectively sharing the tremendous experience of NASCAR racing.”
