Joie Chitwood III — president of Daytona International Speedway — urged NASCAR fans to bring Confederate flags to Daytona over the Fourth of July weekend as part of NASCAR’s flag exchange.
“For us, we’re celebrating the American Flag this weekend,” Chitwood said Tuesday. “It’s our nation’s birthday. We’re going to have a flag exchange opportunity. So fans who would like to fly the American Flag, we’ll trade with you on whatever flag you have. We want you to celebrate that flag this weekend.”
