NASCAR, its parent company International Speedway Corp, and 18 racing teams are facing a $500 million lawsuit that accuses the auto racing organization of racial discrimination. So reports Reuters.

Terrance Cox and his company, Diversity Motorsports Racing LLC, filed the lawsuit in U.S. district court in Manhattan.
