The negative attention facing the Hoosier state keeps piling on after NASCAR—the nation’s second largest professional sports franchise in terms of ratings—issued a statement expressing their disappointment over Indiana’s RFRA law.
“NASCAR is disappointed by the recent legislation passed in Indiana. We will not embrace nor participate in exclusion or intolerance. We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our sport and therefore will continue to welcome all competitors and fans at our events in the state of Indiana and anywhere else we race.”
Founded in 1947, NASCAR races are broadcast in over 150 countries and holds 17 of the top 20 most attended single-day sporting events in the world.
NASCAR joins the NCAA, the NBA and the WNBA, as well as the Pacers, the Fever and the owner of the Colts in voicing their opposition to Indiana’s RFRA law.SHARE THIS STORY
