The stock-car racing organization NASCAR released a statement on Tuesday saying it was “disappointed” by Indiana’s religious freedom-law, which could allow discrimination against gay people.
The statement from the Charlotte, N.C-based organization, which holds multiple races in Indiana, was attributed to its senior vice president and chief communications officer Brett Jewkes:
NASCAR is disappointed by the recent legislation passed in Indiana. We will not embrace nor participate in exclusion or intolerance. We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our sport and therefore will continue to welcome all competitors and fans at our events in the state of Indiana and anywhere else we race.
