Ray Ciccarelli announced the end of his NASCAR career Wednesday following NASCAR's decision to allow kneeling during the national anthem and to ban Confederate flags from all events.
Ciccarelli, 50, posted this message to Facebook:
Well its been a fun ride and dream come true but if this is the direction Nascar is headed we will not participate after the 2020 season is over , I don't believe in kneeling during Anthem nor taken ppl right to fly whatever flag they love. I could care less about the Confederate Flag but there are ppl that do and it doesn't make them a racist all you are doing is f***one group to cater to another and i aint spend the money we are to participate in any political BS!! So everything is for SALE!!
His post has since been deleted.

Post deleted so how do we know it ever existed? LOL! Anyway, after that he would have been cancelled anyway. Ya just can't say what's on your mind can ya?
Sounds like a dirty mouthed loser.
Headline omits “following NASCAR’s decision to allow kneeling during the national anthem”
There will doubtless still be stock car racing in some form, but I’ll be surprised if NASCAR is still around in two years.
Good for him and I hope others take a stand at how liberal NASCAR has become
He’s smart to get out while the gettin’ is good. nascar has both jumped the shark and gone FULL retard.
No he sounds right.
What is it with all the limp wristed still the “gentleman loser” people on this board?
Get some balls for God’s sake.
he said what I believe and I thought most of us did.
Dirty mouthed..what are you ####ing 10??
Give me a breka.
We have a shortage of men willing to get dirty and fight dirty if needed.
Too often lately some here are proving that.
He’s a driver in the truck series.
I said a lot more in post 8.
Our side really needs to man up.
Sounds like a principled patriot.......
Please elaborate. Sitting in my pickup waiting on my old lady; I got time.
Its not the communists/fascists rampaging through every corner of society that need a revolution. Its us.
Agreed. Too many panty wearers on our side.
Sounds like a man who has had enough of the stupid sh*t that seems to be running amok in this country, today.
From my favorite Long Island oyster boys...
For this fantastic night was billed as nothing less than the end of an age
A last crusade, a final outrage, in this day of flaccid plumage
And there was worn no cloth but leather
Made supple by years of stinging cinders
BS!! So everything is for SALE!!
I think he is saying that NASCAR sold itself and not to “anti racism” but to a Leftist political agenda.
Unfortunately the guy is a nobody and wont be missed. NASCAR even posted a humiliating reply to his Twitter post, saying something close to this: We had to look up your name because we didnt recognize it and dont remember you ever driving in a NASCAR race. Bye.
