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.
Make-A-Wish Vanderbilt Kicker Sarah Fuller Will Take Part in Joe Biden’s Inauguration
Vanderbilt University student Sarah Fuller, goalie for the women’s soccer team and erstwhile emergency kicker for the men’s football team, will be taking part in the inauguration of Joe Biden.
USA Today reports that Fuller will participate in a television program titled “Celebrating America,” which will be simulcast the evening of Inauguration Day on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and PBS.
Fuller confirmed the news on Twitter Sunday afternoon.
“It’s an honor to be invited to participate in one of America’s greatest traditions,” Fuller tweeted with pictures of herself on the Vanderbilt football field. “This historic inauguration is especially meaningful for American women and girls. The glass ceilings are breaking and it is the time to #LeadLikeAWoman.”

Multiple guests will appear on the program in addition to Fuller. Tom Hanks is hosting and both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be giving speeches.
Back in November and December the mainstream media lauded Fuller for becoming the first woman to play and then score in a Power Five college football game. In her first appearance she squib kicked the ball to Missouri’s 37-yard line and subsequently hurried to the sidelines. In later appearances she made two extra points following Vanderbilt touchdowns.
Fuller became Vanderbilt’s emergency kicker after their starting and backup kickers could not play due to COVID-19 protocols.
Big League Politics previously covered the Sarah Fuller story, specifically the reaction of Jason Whitlock, a conservative-friendly sports writer who once worked for Fox Sports. Whitlock called her appearance a “Make-A-Wish” publicity stunt.
