In light of recent events, it’s become clear that NASCAR is stepping up to address the pressing issue of domestic abuse. This is evident in the racing organization’s decision to suspend driver Cody Ware indefinitely following his arrest on serious assault charges in North Carolina. In doing so, NASCAR demonstrates the conservative values of personal responsibility and adherence to the law, which stand in stark contrast to the often lenient and dismissive attitudes of some liberal politicians when dealing with criminal behavior.
At the age of 27, Cody Ware is a well-known race car driver for Rick Ware Racing. He was recently arrested by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office and charged with felony assault by strangulation-inflict serious injury, as well as misdemeanor assault on a female. Despite being released on a $3,000 bond the same day, NASCAR took decisive action by announcing his indefinite suspension on Twitter.
The Associated Press managed to obtain a copy of the police report, which revealed that the arrest resulted from an alleged domestic violence incident occurring late on April 3. Ware was conspicuously absent from the NASCAR Cup Series dirt race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday, with news of his arrest only breaking after the event.
Rick Ware Racing, which is owned by Ware’s father, initially announced that Cody would be absent from the NASCAR Cup Series due to a “personal matter.”

The statement read, “Cody Ware will step away from racing this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway to focus on a personal matter. Matt Crafton will drive the No. 51 Ford Mustang for Rick Ware Racing.” However, the truth behind his absence quickly surfaced, prompting the racing company to issue a statement on Monday following his arrest.
According to the statement, Cody Ware is “fully cooperating with the authorities” as they investigate the matter. Rick Ware Racing acknowledged NASCAR’s decision, saying, “We understand NASCAR’s position on this matter and accept their decision.” The company further expressed its commitment to continuing its multi-car efforts in the NASCAR Cup Series and are in the process of finalizing plans for the No. 51 entry at Martinsville Speedway and beyond.

NASCAR’s stern response to Ware’s arrest sends a strong message that the organization values justice and will not tolerate criminal behavior within its ranks. This decisive action is a testament to the conservative principles of law and order that have been under attack by liberal politicians, who often display a concerning disregard for the consequences of criminal activity.
By taking a firm stand against domestic abuse, NASCAR is upholding the conservative belief that individuals must be held accountable for their actions, regardless of their social status or occupation. Such a position is in direct contrast to the leniency often granted by liberal policies, which can enable and even encourage the continuation of harmful behaviors.
