SI.com just ran a 30+ picture photo gallery on NASCAR fans. I'm curious about these folks as I've yet to get into to the racing craze.
I understand that black folks have been a part of NASCAR for a while (a small part). But really, when you look at these pictures, it is amazing to see that there are NO black people. (Actually, there might be one but in reality he looks like a really tan white guy and there are a group of darker skinned Colobmians but they don't count in this search either).
I suppose part of the reason is the scattering of confederate flags (always an awful good sign that black folks aren't allowed). I doubt affordability is the issue. I also doubt that the sport itself is the issue (all that HYPHY stuff I've seen on videos demonstrates to me that black folks like fast cars just as much as white folks).
I can't put my finger on it, but it sure is interesting.
