NASCAR Fans Riot Over Earnhardt Caricature

Thousands of NASCAR fans erupted into violent protests over a caricature of their icon, Dale Earnhardt, that was recently published in a Florida newspaper.

Across the South where Earnhardt has experienced almost a cult status, hundreds of mobile home parks were set ablaze after an unflattering caricature of their idol had been published as an expression of 1st Amendment rights.

From Tallahassee to Houston, hundreds of evangelical church services erupted into flag-burning protests Sunday as angry crowds chanted with their fists raised. "No dignity to a nation where Dale is blasphemed!" cried out one woman as she hurled a Tupperware bowl of nine-bean "trash" salad during a church supper. "That's what comes after insulting our sacred values," she continued.

A spokesperson for Earnhardt's fan club said that no compromise would be considered until the publication apologized for the cartoon.
