NASCAR teams use decals to honor Orlando shooting victims

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — NASCAR teams are running a decal on their cars at Daytona International Speedway to honor the victims of the mass shooting in nearby Orlando.

The massacre led to the deaths of 49 victims at a nightclub.

''It was a terrible tragedy,'' Dale Earnhardt Jr. said Thursday. ''I'm glad that the sport has got the stickers on all the cars. I think it's a great way for us to show our support.''
