Confederate flags banned from NASCAR races and venues

National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) is banning Confederate flags from all races and venues. The move comes just two days after Bubba Wallace, the only full-time black NASCAR driver, called for the removal of Confederate flags to demonstrate its commitment to fight racism, in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon.

In a statement on their website, NASCAR explained their decision, writing: "The presence of the Confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry."
