TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) Megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress has been selected by Talladega Superspeedway to give Sunday's pre-race invocation and wave the green flag.
Jeffress has warned of a ''civil war-like fracture'' if President Donald Trump is impeached.
NASCAR has a tricky relationship with Trump after former chairman Brian France recruited several drivers to attend a 2016 rally, where France endorsed Trump's candidacy. Trump seized it as an endorsement from all of NASCAR. France later tried to stress this was strictly his opinion.
The invocation is a staple before every NASCAR national series event, although some do avoid overt religion and politics.
