NASCAR is standing firm with the National Rifle Association as more than a dozen companies cut ties with the organization in the wake of the Florida school shooting.

FOX News reports that Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tenn. announced it would be keeping the NRA as a co-sponsor of its annual “night race.”

“This has been a good, long-standing partnership and we plan to continue,” speedway management said in a statement to USA Today.

In a 2015 press release announcing the sponsorship, Bristol Motor Speedway executive vice president and general manager Jerry Caldwell touted the agreement as a “well-suited partnership” because the three entities involved — Bass Pro Shops, the NRA and NASCAR — share the same customers.

NASCAR team owner Richard Childress, who is now the first vice president of the NRA, also described the sponsorship as a strong match.

“Racing fans and NRA members treasure their freedom and outdoor heritage, and the Night Race is where we go to celebrate that love of freedom, love of the shooting sports, and love of the great outdoors,” Childress said in a statement at the time.

NRA First Vice President Richard Childress is also a NASCAR team owner and former driver.

The NRA and Bass Pro Shops have sponsored the night race at Bristol since 2016, with previous event sponsors including Irwin Tools, Sharpie and Goody’s Headache Powder.

Childress said in 2015 that NASCAR made the “right decision” to let the NRA co-sponsor the race, noting that “so many fans are supporters” of the organization.

NASCAR previously drew criticism for allowing the NRA to sponsor a Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway in 2013, just four months after the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

HELL YEAH! 

GOD BLESS NASCAR, THE NRA AND AMERICA! 

TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
