Racial Discrimination Lawsuit Against NASCAR and International Speedway Corp

NASCAR was hit with a USD 500 million lawsuit accusing the company of racial discrimination for preventing black-owned teams and drivers from competing, including in the Sprint Cup Series. Terrance Cox and his company, Diversity Motorsports Racing LLC, filed a lawsuit late on September 16, 2016 in U.S. district court in Manhattan against NASCAR, its parent company, International Speedway Corp, and 18 teams, according to court records. The plaintiffs are also seeking an injunction requiring the defendants to 'fully integrate the African-American community'. In a statement, NASCAR reported that the lawsuit has no merit. The plaintiffs reported that they sued after NASCAR refused to let them field a team or join its Drive for Diversity programme, and in 2015 told them to cease contact. Citing NASCAR's website, the plaintiffs said none of the 48 drivers in the Sprint Cup, NASCAR's top racing series, is black, and only one of the 18 teams has partial African-American ownership. They also reported that only one driver in NASCAR's Xfinity Series circuit is black. The lawsuit seeks USD 75 million in compensatory damages and USD 425 million in punitive damages. Ronald Paltrowitz, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, reported that any funds would go toward groups that the plaintiffs sponsor to boost minority participation in motorsports.
