It seems like some Nascar fans in Alabama have an issue with Nascar’s recent Confederate flag ban.

Two weeks ago, NASCAR announced they will no longer allow fans to display the Confederate flag at NASCAR races or events.

“The presence of the Confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry. Bringing people together around a love for racing and the community that it creates is what makes our fans and sport special. The display of the Confederate flag will be prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties.”

One fan found a loophole and was able to get a plane with a Confederate flag with banner that says “Defund NASCAR” to fly over Talladega on Sunday.

The flyover banner comes just days after several people in Talladega held a protest against NASCAR’s decision to ban the confederate flag.
