NASCAR Cools On Confederate Flag, But Fans Still Fly It

NASCAR wants to limit the Confederate battle flag's presence at its tracks after the murder of nine black worshippers in South Carolina. However, getting U.S. motor racing fans to comply may prove difficult. On the eve of a big holiday race weekend in Daytona Beach, David Childress was among those who ignored the call. He packed a t-shirt festooned with the Civil War-era flag for his trip to the world-famous Florida racetrack. The 61-year-old Mississippi resident said, "I don't think you're supposed to cherish it, but don't forget it." Childress said he owns six Confederate flags.
