Megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress has been decided on by way of Talladega Superspeedway to offer Sunday’s pre-race invocation and wave the fairway flag.
Jeffress has warned of a “civil war-like fracture” if President Donald Trump is impeached.
NASCAR has a tough dating with Trump after former chairman Brian France recruited a number of drivers to wait a 2016 rally, the place France recommended Trump’s candidacy. Trump seized it as an endorsement from all of NASCAR. France later attempted to fret this used to be strictly his opinion.
The invocation is a staple sooner than each NASCAR nationwide sequence tournament, even if some do steer clear of overt faith and politics.
