    Post NASCAR owners threaten to FIRE any driver who protests during the national anthem

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...s-protest.html

    No drivers, crew or other team members protested during the national anthem to start the NASCAR Cup series race after receiving warnings that they would be fired.

    Several team owners and executives had said they wouldn't want anyone in their organizations to protest at The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing race in Loudon, New Hampshire, today.

    Richard Childress, who was Dale Earnhardt's longtime team owner, told the Associated Press: 'It'll get you a ride on a Greyhound bus.'

    Childress, 72, says he told his team that 'anybody that works for me should respect the country we live in. So many people gave their lives for it. This is America'.

    Hall of Fame driver Richard Petty's sentiments took it a step further. The 80-year-old said: 'Anybody that don't stand up for the anthem oughta be out of the country. Period.

    'What got 'em where they're at? The United States.'

    When asked if a protester at Richard Petty Motorsports would be fired, he said, 'You're right.'

    The fact that the whitest sport in the country feels the need to weigh in on something meant as a protest over an issue related to race is the most tone-deaf of any tone-deaf statement on the matter yet.

    It's not the sport throwing out a statement. It's two of ~15 car owners, which represent 4 cars in a 40 car field.
