Ricky Stenhouse, Tommy Joe Martins remove state flag from cars, firesuits due to Confederate flag use

Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. has removed the Mississippi state flag from his firesuit and belt buckle upon hearing arguments for how it contains a racially sensitive visual—the Confederate battle flag embedded into its union.

He is the second NASCAR driver from Mississippi to remove the flag from his apparel. The first was NASCAR Xfinity Series regular Tommy Joe Martins.
