    Tobacco sponsorship has been banned in NASCAR for a number of years so how NASCAR love fags?

      That joke is only funny if you’re British, or know a lot of British slang. :)

  2. Great, can they be lined up at dangerous places along the race track?
    They can pray to their lesser god for safety, and count their fabulous rainbows if they get to go home at the end of the day.

  3. “I can’t speak for the fans, I can only speak for myself, but in this garage, if you can win, people will want to be a part of what you can do.”

    I like how he takes the precaution of not offending homophobic NASCAR fans, not that it’s either here nor there in the sick minds of the Phelps family.

      I think his qualified answer is valid: He DOESN’T really know what the fans would think. As he says, though, if they win races nobody will CARE if their bedroom has matching genitals, at least in the team!

  4. We can only hope that the WBC protesters are on the race track after the cars have taken off from the starting grid. They should keep racing and let the WBC protesters fly. Then the world will love NASCAR.

    1. I’d run them over if it was me

    I have never understood why the first amendment (The right to free speech) has never conflicted with the second amendment (The right to bear arms)

    The only way anyone is going to stop that bunch is by putting a bullet between Fred Phelp’s eyes.
