Legacy Motor Club and NASCAR made huge announcements Saturday when they decided to suspend driver Noah Gragson for liking a meme of George Floyd on Instagram.
Gragson has been suspended indefinitely and no timetable has been set for his return. For now, Josh Berry will be taking over the No. 42 car in the Cup Series.
The team initially made the decision to suspend Gragson. NASCAR itself then weighed in with a statement that they’d suspended Gragson indefinitely. And Gragson released his own statement admitting his wrongdoing in this situation.
NASCAR driver Noah Gregson is despicable for liking this ugly and racist George Floyd meme, just like the racist Twitter Blue goons commenting under this post https://t.co/Wp65Ru4a9j

Who’s Noah Gregson?
I don’t follow that nonsense, but can we give NASCAR the Budweiser treatment?
