Goodyear faces backlash at NASCAR race in Texas

Signs have appeared at Texas Motor Speedway ahead of Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event which protest Goodyear. Goodyear has been a sponsor of NASCAR since 1954 yet recent actions of shipping jobs to Mexico and China have upset those organizing this protest.

Sunday’s MENCS race at Texas is scheduled to air at 3:00 pm ET on NBCSN and the NBC Sports App. The full starting lineup for the AAA Texas 500 can be found here.

The signs urge viewers to use the #tirechange.

“Good year for China, Good Year for Mexico. Bad year for American Workers. Stop Shipping Jobs Overseas! #tirechange reads one of the signs.
