The Trump 2020 Car Waves and Early Bye-Bye at the Brickyard 400

Like seemingly every single activity on this doomed planet, NASCAR has become heavily politicized recently.

Of course, there's the continuing saga involving Bubba Wallace and a Talladega garage pull rope that had mysteriously been fashioned into a noose.

Despite the fact that Wallace is one of the few black dudes hanging out at the track and the hate symbol was found in his garage, the subsequent FBI investigation determined that the act had been done months earlier and wasn't overtly racist.

Even before the above went down, the national discourse involving the Confederate flag obviously had to include NASCAR, as the damn thing is synonomous with the sport.

The blinding irony of this situation wasn't lost on the cyber-masses:

Another bullseye.

And one more visual just to drive our subtle point home:


By the way, not only did Bubba actually finish the race, he placed ninth.

Now we can only assume you're wondering if retired ballplayer Aubrey Huff has weighed in on the subject.

Well, we aims to please:


Oh, and what of the ratings for the Brickyard 400?


Wait, there must be some mistake.


Audible sigh.
