This is why I can't stand Kyle Larson. We all know why he "sat out" for a season as Fox put it. We all know why he gained so many fans when he returned.

He bears responsibility for the resurgence of openly racist NASCAR fans:

Larson's usage of the n-word, regardless of context, made it more acceptable (in the eyes of conservative fans) to be more openly racist. Then, months later George Floyd was murdered and the noose incident occurred.

It was the perfect cultural storm for racist fans to be louder.
It's no secret most racist Bubba haters on Twitter have Larson all over their profiles. It's no secret most of his fans came AFTER he returned to NASCAR.

He made the right PR decisions to return. He "did the work," so to say.

He also never denounced the racist fans he gained.

Pues aquí estamos, a base de señales piratas para ver la Daytona 500, ante la imposibilidad legal de poder disfrutarlas pagando en España.

Este es el resumen de nuestra afición por el automovilismo, cultivada durante años alrededor del fanatismo monomodalidad y monopiloto.
Me recuerda esto al desarrollo del paladar en cuestión del gusto por la buena mesa: parece que nos queremos quedar con lo que ya conocemos antes de ir a conocer más de esta preciosa afición del motor, más allá de las fronteras de nuestro entorno cercano.
Poder aprender a apreciar otros gustos, otras culturas (en este caso del automóvil) nos enriquece, nos hace crecer...

Pero parece que los medios solo saben sacar partido de lo fácil, del pelotazo, del ídolo y su gesta contra villanos.

Una guerra perdida? Espero que no...

I just pulled up our Snapstream recording of the ESPN special on Bubba Wallace and I'm only five minutes in -- I already want to smash my monitor into a million pieces then throw it into the Potomac. #NASCAR
One word to describe Bubba Wallace that I'll admit I didn't accept until the last few months -- narcissistic
Here's what I think the problem is -- Bubba, like everyone (and I mean everyone -- even those who claim they don't), wants to be liked and enjoys the spotlight to a certain extend.

And, with that and the woke-ification of just about everything, he sees the aura of the fame.

O Hudson Hornet é considerado um dos carros mais marcantes do automobilismo americano, tendo várias vitórias na #NASCAR e na AAA Stock Car, além de títulos. Conto a história desta lenda na thread:
Antes de falar do Hornet, temos que falar da Hudson Motor Car Company, a fabricante, considerada uma "pequena empresa" de Detroit. Foi fundada em 1908, era bastante inovadora, conseguia se virar bem em um mercado dominado pelas grandes, como GM e Ford.
Após a 2° Guerra, na qual a Hudson foi usada para fábricas peças bélicas, voltou a fabricar carros de rua. Em 1948, uma grande inovação que também seria usado no Hornet, veio com o Commodore, um carro mais baixo, melhorava a questão de arrasto e baixava o centro de gravidade.

🧵 #NASCAR ratings recap 2021 - How did NASCAR perform this season in terms of viewership?

Before we start:
- I use viewership (2mil) instead of ratings (2.4) because ratings are difficult to understand
- This is an analysis, which means that I'm using data to support an opinion
2021 brought a bunch of new changes to the schedule, all of which have affected viewership in some way. To recap:
- Condensed speedweeks
- New tracks: COTA, Road America, Nashville, Indy Road
- More road courses
- Bristol Dirt
- Texas all star
- Limited practice/qualifying
Overall, how did NASCAR do in 2021?

- The year (purple) started off lower, but NASCAR started matching previous year's race numbers in the middle of the season
- NASCAR ended the season pretty on par with 2020

70 years ago this month, in Feb 1951, the Ford Motor Company Archives was founded and we have been serving the needs of the Company ever since. Henry Edmunds, formerly head archivist of the US War Production Board, was named chief archivist #HowItStartedHowItsGoing #FordArchives
Edmunds first big challenge was to provide raw material for a two-volume history of Ford Motor Company by historians Allan Nevins and Frank Ernest Hill. The Ford Archives moved in 1952 and was formally dedicated at Fair Lane Estate on May 7, 1953. #Fairlane #FordHistory
The Archives was relocated to the Rotunda building in Feb 1957 while some of the holdings were donated to Henry Ford Museum to aid the mission the Museum. When fire destroyed most of the Rotunda in Nov 1962, the archival records survived and were moved to different storage areas

After the most unpredictable year of all, get set for another one. Here, in handy A-Z form, are a few pointers and things to keep an eye on across the global sports industry in 2021. #sportsbiz.
A - Action: With global movements gaining real momentum, this has to be the year for more tangible organisational action - staff training, recruitment practices, coaching, mentoring schemes and leadership education - across the industry to make sport a more inclusive place.
B - Bundesliga and the big 5: Across European football, getting fans back into stadiums remains the top priority, but there are challenges everywhere as clubs flex their muscles, the @Bundesliga_EN searches for its new CEO and Ligue 1 tries to sort out its TV and financial mess.

NCGOP ties to NC Sons of Confederate Veterans & white supremacy agenda go deep.

Deeper than just confed flags & white power shouts at #NCGOP rallies.
Deeper than a couple dozen campaign donations.

Really deep.


#NCpol #BlackLivesMatter
Been a long fall for NC GOP to being a foremost US white supremacy political party.

In 1870, it was #NCpol Republican Constable Wyatt Outlaw that took reasonable, non-lethal action against KKK.

Today's #NCGOP mocks Outlaw's subsequent lynching.

We all know 19th century KKK were Dems, Repubs freed slaves.

We know bc GOP always tells us. Forest did it. So did Hawthorne.

Bc they don't have much else to say about race in polite company.

Bc today #NCGOP is a white supremacy party, #ncpol.

A thread of random thoughts sparked by Tuesday's bombshell from The Athletic that @ACSUpdates, once hailed as the vanguard of racetrack construction during the auto racing boom times of the go-go ‘90s, soon will be transformed by #nascar into Martinsville with a dash of Bristol.
Maybe it’s because I watched it rise from a literal slag heap of toxic waste, but I still struggle to wrap my head around the arc of history in Fontana.

It started as the most Penske Perfect of palatial speedways and gradually became the most maligned track in NASCAR.
Some of Fontana's rep was inadvertent -- it always would be cast a villain in the theft of Darlington's Southern 500 Labor Day date -- but much was deserved for lackluster races.

Drivers loved the track because it was wide and smooth. Many fans detested it for the same reasons.

Segment from @NASCAR’s Business Partner #Barstool:

•“Anyone with a f*cking brain” doubted the Bubba Wallace noose story.

•Wallace played the “you’re a racist” “card” on @TheView.

•“Structural racism” is foundational to the “left wing belief system.” #ExposeBarstoolRacists
Barstool’s Kirk Minihane show: Bubba Wallace “should have to own that statement.” It wasn’t a noose. “Structural racism” is a “belief.”

Donald Trump: Bubba Wallace should have to apologize. It was a “another hoax.”

This was a noose ➡️ ImageImage
Barstool’s Kirk Minihane compared #BubbaWallace to Smollet, criticized his comments on The View, and even criticized Barstool founder Dave Portnoy for a supportive Bubba Wallace tweet.

Barstool stands by employees who criticize #NASCAR’s only Black driver. #ExposeBarstoolRacists

I have to tell y’all something.
Last night I had an amazing conversation with my Black brother. He was living with me when Obama was elected the first time and since then we talk politics more openly than I do with most people IRL.

We talk all the time, but last night we had a long conversation...
He is so frustrated and I get it. Watching the righteous movement sparked by the murder of George Floyd get hijacked by people who don’t give a shit about the Black community.
All of this destruction... and for what?

Will a single thing change?

We all want the same answers.

THREAD: Here's Bubba Wallace's full CNN interview with Don Lemon.

In his first reaction to it not being a hate crime, Bubba immediately expresses anger at critics: "I'm pissed. I'm mad because people are trying to test my character and the person that I am and my integrity."
Don Lemon jumps in, calling people asking questions "knuckleheads," adding: "Fair-minded people are not accusing you of doing anything wrong....I think in this environment and I have said it before, this hyper-charged environment that we should all cut each other some slack."
Lemon continued, making hateful generalizations about #NASCAR fans. He suggested it doesn't matter much: "Look at this as something that happens when you are evolving and changing...Let's not forget the people feel the way -- a certain kind of way about you and the flag."

@Muttmere1 @BillieJeanKing @GovernorLittle @Martina @sharrond62 Two points
1. It’s not ethical.
2. It’s not #sports

See elaboration in tweets below⬇️
@Muttmere1 @BillieJeanKing @GovernorLittle @Martina @sharrond62 1/ I use “ethical” rather than invoking “fairness”, because of the predictable retort “who said life would be fair”. Having males in female sports goes beyond natural unfairness (typical skill variation)- it is a purposeful decision to disadvantage 50% of #Athlete population
@Muttmere1 @BillieJeanKing @GovernorLittle @Martina @sharrond62 2/ It’s not #sports.
In sports we have distinct categories based upon clearly defined boundaries so that the outcome has a specific meaning.
Example: Automobile racing.
👉🏼There would be no meaning to a race if a F1 🏎 would be allowed into #NASCAR race.
Different structures.
