NASCAR has suspended owner-driver Josh Reaume indefinitely. He is an owner-driver in the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.

The governing body said that Reaume made a social media post online that they flagged. It’s not clear what might have been said or done by the driver.

He has been suspended for violating Sections 12.1 and 12.8.1.2 in the NASCAR Rule Book. The violation is from a “public statement and/or communication that criticizes, ridicules, or otherwise disparages another person based upon that person’s race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, or handicapping condition.”

Trump supporter Mike Wallace made social media posts that got him in hot water, too. Wallace has lost his appeal so far.
