This is how it starts. First they pull at the heart strings and complain that NASCAR is a behemoth, monster greedy monolith that has no compassion for former drivers and their current medical or financial conditions. Next will be the lawsuits and liberal lawmakers focusing their attention on NASCAR's so called "terrible" behavior.
That The New York Times published this, I am thinking that they never got over the booing FLOTUS and SLOTUS got a couple years ago at the Daytona 500. So NASCAR is big and successful with a conservative fan base. Makes it a perfect target. Expect the full on attack to start soon.
