STOKES COUNTY — Black protesters at 311 Speedway here were met with intimidation by AR 15-style-rifle toting staff and fans Saturday night, but ended the evening praying arm-in-arm, hearing the raceway’s owner apologize for his recent racist Facebook posts, a video shows.
There was a video of the events at the track from this past Saturday night/evening and I sure would like to see that Facebook video, but here is some of the conversation from the 311 Speedway owner Mike Fulp, in that video….
Fulp cried as he spoke in the video, “I made a mistake, and I’m sorry. I don’t want nobody hurt, man, I don’t want nobody hurt … People threatened me, to kill me,’’ he said of callers, many of whom he said were white.
“Let’s pray for you because you’re hurtin’’ Pastor Greg Drumwright said, before meeting Fulp outside 311’s gates, where Fulp asked to shake hands with each protester, embracing one young man and crying.
