NASCAR is turning against the 2nd Amendment, rejecting pro-gun advertisements after citing a “gradual shift” on gun rights.
“We just heard from NASCAR on a number of gun related ads and unfortunately, due a gradual shift in NASCAR’s position on guns, these ads must be edited/changed—especially those that are depicted as assault-style rifles/sniper rifles,” wrote National Event Publications, the NASCAR’s official sales media agent, to the K-Var Armory.
“NASCAR is still open to some of the less controversial gun accessories, concealed carry, or classes,” they added.
K-Var noted that there is nothing “gradual” about what is being done. NASCAR has allowed advertisements without any restrictions from gun manufacturers until this year.
“NASCAR has allowed ads from firearms manufacturers for several years. AK-47s, AR-15s, and scoped rifles have all been featured in the past, so I guess, by that statement, it can only mean that NASCAR is marching toward a complete anti-gun stance—it is just slow rolling it for some reason,” K-Var writes on their blog.
K-Var notes that NASCAR is likely to suffer immense backlash, considering many of their supporters are rural supporters of the 2nd Amendment, similar to Yeti and Dick’s Sporting Goods as a result of their embrace of political correctness.
“Do the executives at NASCAR think they are being sly and trying to judge its fans’ position on America’s most popular rifle, the AR-15 or Modern Sporting Rifle, or is it so blind to the interests of its own fan base’s demographics?” they asked.
The NASCAR exodus is already at hand, as the racing giant has already lost a stunning 5 million viewers since their popularity peaked in 2005. They lost a stunning 700,000 viewers for their annual Cup Series from 2017 to 2018.
“I think that we are looking with our broadcast partners and with our tracks and with our teams and drivers to get input on what each of them believes would be an ideal schedule, and then we’re obviously doing fan research as part of it,” NASCAR president Steve Phelps said last year, acknowledging their product’s steep decline.
““So do I believe that everything is on the table? I do. Will we see a lot of the things that have been talked about, so more short tracks, more road courses, double‑headers, mid‑week racing, pulling the season forward? All those things would be in play. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but we are working diligently on what a 2020 schedule would be,” he added.
It seems the changes NASCAR is making, which apparently includes souring on gun rights, may hasten their demise even faster.
“That Stuff Ain’t Happenin’ with [a] Kamala-Biden Ticket”: Fox Sports Broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman Mock Military Jet Flyovers on Hot Mic
The top NFL broadcast duo at Fox Sports, Joe Buck and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman, mocked military jet flyovers on a hot mic during Sunday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Aikman started it all by saying, “That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.”
“That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!” Buck responded sarcastically.
The most notable and outrageous moment came when Aikman then quipped, “That stuff ain’t happenin’ with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”

How embarrassing and disgraceful. The NFL has already lost many conservative fans over its aggressively pro-social justice, pro-Black Lives Matter stance, so I guess it’s no surprise that its commentators and broadcasters would be liberal as well.
Many on social media are reacting to the Buck/Aikman hot mic by saying that the flyovers are a waste of money and that there’s nothing wrong with what they said. Aside from the fact that these flyovers are legitimate training exercises, none of them are focusing on Aikman’s last comment about the “Kamala-Biden ticket” (which is in the wrong order, if you didn’t already notice). He’s implying that flyovers honoring the military are nothing more than a partisan display that Democrats would prefer not to see. That’s shameful.
