I just know that he shouldn’t be allowed back at a NASCAR track until the 2014 Daytona Nationwide opener. Sure, whatever he did pales in comparison to other issues of race that mar NASCAR’s history. Shoot, baseball integrated in 1947, NASCAR formed in 1948, and yet, 60-plus years later one African-American, Darrell Wallace Jr., is in a full-time ride in one of NASCAR’s top-three series. The stories of black NASCAR racing pioneer Wendell Scott being marginalized have finally been exposed to the point they don’t need to be repeated here.

Inside the Garage: Could NASCAR Consistency Issues Return?
