NASCAR Indefinitely Suspends Driver After Liking George Floyd Meme

Joe Morgan, Fox News, August 5, 2023

NASCAR and Legacy Motor Club have suspended driver Noah Gragson over his actions on social media.

NASCAR confirmed to Fox Sports that the suspension is related to a meme making fun of the death of George Floyd, a post which Gragson had liked.

“We have made the decision to suspend Noah Gragson effective immediately regarding his actions that do not represent the values of our team,” Legacy Motor Club said. “Josh Berry will drive the No. 42 entry for this weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Michigan.”

NASCAR then announced an indefinite suspension for Gragson for violating the member conduct section of the NASCAR Rule Book.
