This is the post I left on Dale Jr's, Kelley Earnhardt's, PIR, Hendrick Motorsports & the National Guard FB pages...'I was just informed that the National Guard people at PIR packed up their display and left the flats of posters and cases of 8x10 photos of Dale Jr. on the ground to be walked on and kicked about. Then a grounds keeper came along and picked them up and threw them in the trash. This has me so upset. There is another race this season that the items could have been taken to and handed out. I myself missed this display and would have loved to have gotten some of it. I'm thinking they left a little early. I saw the hauler leaving and there was still plenty of time left before the race started. I was also told that they packed up early on Fri too. So I'll bet it's safe to say they did on Saturday as well. I hope someone has a talk with these people. Dale Jr. fans are offended by this. If they didn't want to haul the items around, all they had to do was take it out of the race track then dispose of it out of the eyes of the fans.' We need to spread the word that this is no acceptable behavior.
This is my only reply so far... National Guard.... 'Tina, we're sorry to hear about this incident and that it upset you. Thank you for your support of Dale Jr.'
Come on, where is the assurance that this will NOT happen again! Kelley, it's your brother where's your outrage? I just don't get it! EVERY Dale Jr fan should be as OUTRAGED as I am!
Doesn't the taxpayer dollars fun the National Guard? So not only did they throw away a LOT of posters and photos of Dale Jr, they threw away taxpayer dollars. That should have even the non Dale Jr fans outraged! What a WASTE!
