NASCAR Host Jamie Little On Confederate Flag Ban: “It’s Definitely Time And I’m Glad The Drivers Took A Stand”

Las Vegan and Green Valley High Graduate, Jamie Little has been a longtime Host and Pit Reporter for NASCAR On Fox and she provided her perspective on the sweeping changes that NASCAR has implemented this week, including the ban of the Confederate Flag at the race events.  Earlier in the week, the Series only African-American Driver, Bubba Wallace spoke out against the inherent racism allowed in his sport and added #BlackLivesMatter to his vehicle and condemned the use of Confederate Flags at race events – to which end, NASCAR followed suit.

Jamie Little appeared on The Press Box Morning Show with Ed and Clay and offered her perspective.

“I’ve been covering NASCAR for many, many years.  Coming from Las Vegas, I went to my first Talladega race and there’s Confederate flags everywhere there.  There’s setups on the side of the road selling Confederate bathing suits and everything else in between.  I think it’s definitely time and I’m glad the drivers have taken a stand and spoke out, because they felt they needed to and Bubba had to fight this issue for many years and I’m glad it’s all coming together.”
