Driver Noah Gragson has been suspended endlessly and will avoid NASCAR's Cup Series race on Sunday because of his “activities” via web-based entertainment, as per NASCAR and his group, Heritage Engine Club.
A screen capture circling via web-based entertainment implies to show Gragson's Instagram account had preferred an image deriding George Floyd, a Person of color who was killed by a White cop in Minneapolis in 2020. Neither NASCAR nor Inheritance Engine Club determined the justification for the suspension and CNN has not autonomously confirmed the post.
Gragson apologized in a post on Twitter on Saturday.
“I'm frustrated in myself for my absence of consideration and activities via online entertainment,” Gragson said. “I grasp the seriousness of this present circumstance. I love and value everybody. I attempt to treat everybody similarly regardless of what their identity is. I screwed up straightforward.”
