NASCAR, whose top series competed in Tennessee this week and will race in South Carolina and Virginia in the coming weeks, put out a statement on worldwide events fueled by hate. NASCAR President Brent Dewar: "NASCAR brings fans of all different backgrounds and points of view together to celebrate one thing they all have in common – a love for NASCAR. We are saddened by recent tragic events around the world and feel strongly there is no place for bigotry, racism, hatred or violence in our society."

Bob Pockrass, NASCAR
