NBC, in what network officials say is an attempt to gauge anti-Muslim sentiments in the United States, sent Muslim-looking men to Martinsville last week to see how they would be treated.
NASCAR officials have called the move outrageous, and said the network should be embarrassed. It was reported this week that the men were not bothered. It was also reported that NBC will try it again at a future race.
Is the network targeting NASCAR because it lost out on the new TV deal? NBC says its Dateline news program will be visiting a number of locations across the country, not just races, to investigate the story. However, is it a story, or is NBC trying to invent news? Whats your take and what should NASCAR fans do about it?
