Update: The crew member and team will part ways after next weekend’s race in Downtown Chicago

The Hawk Tuah Girl meme — and surely if you’re on the internet right now, you know what that means — has cost a NASCAR Xfinity Series crew member a portion of his race weekend responsibilities.

Robert Dorman, the tire specialist for the small budget team, also embraced race weekend tweeting duties for the organization this season and saw an opportunity for a timely post when rain canceled qualifying for the most recent race on Saturday at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

For those unfamiliar with the memes, it is the result of a girl interviewed in Tennessee referencing a sexual act that involved ‘spit(ting) on that thang, you know what I mean.’

If you don’t, google it.

Anyway, this was the post from Dorman on the official team account.

The post generated a great deal of engagement, more than the small budget team generally gets on race weekends, but it also drew the scorn of team owner Johnny Davis, who didn’t find the post reflective of company values.

Nevertheless, Dorman has not been canceled and he remains the tire specialist for the organization and will be on site this weekend at Nashville Superspeedway in that capacity.
