When it comes to following the Rule Book, NASCAR has a no tolerance policy. 

Last year NASCAR officials suspended indefinitely Mike Wallace and Josh Reaume for violating the conduct rules with posts on social media that was a “public statement and/or communication that criticizes, ridicules, or otherwise disparages another person based upon that person’s race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, or handicapping condition.”

This week, NASCAR has reinstated both drivers after saying that the drivers have successfully completed all criteria for reinstatement in the sport.

Originally suspended on September 10, 2020, Mike Wallace appealed the ruling twice before he was suspended in October.  Reaume was suspended on November 10, 2020 and did not appeal the decision.

Wallace has had over 100 race starts across all three of the sport’s racing series; while Reaume , a relatively new driver, has had only a dozen starts in the Camping World Truck Series and two race starts in the Xfinity Series.
