Derek Daly was fired from WISH-TV for using the n-word in an interview 30+ years ago - he explained his side of the story with us yesterday in-studio, but now it appears that his son is also being punished for it.
Conor, who is racing this weekend in the Xfinity Series at Road America, will not have Lilly Diabetes on his car. They pulled their sponsorship because of the controversy surrounding his dad:
Regardless of how you feel about what Derek said, this is beyond ridiculous. Why make Conor pay for something that had absolutely nothing to do with him? It's a shame because Lilly Diabetes, who thought they were avoiding bad PR, is going to take a ton of bad PR for overreacting and doing the wrong thing.

"Your dad said something he shouldn't have said ten years before you were born."
