Last month, NASCAR rookie Noah Gragson was suspended indefinitely by NASCAR after he “liked” a racist George Floyd meme. But it appears that suspension is over and Gragson has been reinstated.
NASCAR announced the decision on Wednesday, revealing that Noah Gragson “has completed diversity and inclusion training.” In a statement, Gragson claims that he has “become a better person” due to “personal growth” during his suspension.
“I want to express my sincere gratitude to NASCAR for reinstating me. Over the past several weeks, I have dedicated myself to personal growth and reflection, and I believe I have become a better person because of it,” Gragson said. “I couldn’t have done it without the support of my family and the NASCAR industry.
“I am now more focused and committed than ever to representing my future team in the best way possible. I’m eager to get back behind the wheel and compete at the highest level, giving it my all on and off the track. Thank you to everyone who have been a part of this journey, and I can’t wait to make the most of this second chance.”
Though Gragson has been reinstated, he is no longer with Legacy Motor Club as the two sides parted ways after he was suspended.
