Famous NASCAR driver Mark Martin tweeted yesterday that he was canceling his $150,000 RV order with Camping World. Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Camping World, who had also recently acquired Gander Mountain said that if you're OK with what Trump said after Charlottesville, then don't shop at his stores. Evidently, money talks and the Camping World sponsorship pays, because now suddenly Martin is saying it was just a misunderstanding and removed his tweet. Lemonis said what he said, and nothing is going to change that.

He seems like a good guy.  He was passing through town one day about 10yrs ago and stopped to talk to some construction guys. My dad was one of them. (my dad was in poor health at the time and working construction sucks when you're waiting on cancer diagnosis)

Anyways, while Dad was doing the directing traffic thing with the stop sign, they had Martin come up to him bitching him out about something, basically playing a prank on him.  Dad knew who he was and was horrified that he had done something to make Mark Martin mad, lol.  They had a laugh and lunch together afterward.

Professional "sports" in American are a joke. If you understand what's at stake, you wouldn't spend a dime at a pro game or event or support their sponsors.

Lemon was a neverthumper before there was neverthumpers because of Trumps kids hunting.
He has lots of pull in NASCAR. He had enough juice to ban the use of TRUMP hotels for NASCAR years before trump was even running.
He is part owner of truck series.

So, basically, you hand-build every item you own, and hand-built all the tools you used to build that stuff too, yes?

Sounds like he tried to do the right thing and got his pee pee slapped.
