With the nation debating the legacy of the Confederate flag, NASCAR fan-favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. offered his thoughts Friday, saying "it belongs in the history books."
"I think it's offensive to an entire race," Earnhardt said during his media availability at Sonoma Raceway. "It belongs in the history books and that's about it."
Earlier this week, NASCAR issued a statement reaffirming its position against using the Confederate flag in any official capacity.
