Several NASCAR team owners have spoken out about the rules and respect they're going to continue to demand from any of their employees lucky enough to be able to live and work on American soil.
Here are the men speaking out: Richard Petty and Richard Childress.
Meanwhile, Richard Childress, the owner of Richard Childress Racing, also revealed he would not tolerate any sign of disrespect.
“It’ll get you a ride on a Greyhound bus,”Childress said. “Anybody that works for me should respect the country we live in. So many people gave their lives for it. This is America.”
Here is what Racing legend Richard Petty has to say!
“Anybody that don’t stand up for the anthem oughta’ be out of the country, period,” Richard Petty, owner of Richard Petty Motorsports, told The Associated Press. “What got ’em where they’re at? The United States.”
When asked if a protester at Richard Petty Motorsports would be fired, Petty responded, “You’re right.”
Quite a different picture than the NFL right now…
