NASCAR Won’t Let Nur Ali Race at Texas


Remember Nur Ali? How can you not remember Nur Ali? Remember the driver who said he would drive faster when the leaders came to lap him? Well he was set to return to the track this weekend at Texas, however NASCAR had other plans for the young Pakistani-American driver.

Ali was entered to drive the #75 car for Rick Ware Racing this weekend, but NASCAR denied him the opportunity and told him to gain some more experience at the circuits smaller tracks before he raced at the 1.5 mile circuits.

Ali will race at Phoenix next weekend which is a shorter one mile oval. Ali had high hopes for his debut at Texas since he is a resident of Fort Worth.
