This is amazing if it is true…and I would not be one bit surprised if it is. I wrote an e-mail to NASCAR Corporation Headquarters and have already recieved a response from the head of Public Relations.
They said that they are aware and are monitoring the possibility of the situation but wouldn't share any more details at this time.
I have also wrote an e-mail to Dateline@nbc.com. I am still waiting for a reply.
Here are the links to the 2 e-mails that is in a MSN political group forum.

I hope everyone is doing well.
I recently spoke with a producer of the NBC Dateline show and he is in the process of filming a piece on anti-Muslim and anti-Arab discrimination in the USA. They are looking for some Muslim male candidates for their show who would be willing to go to non-Muslim gatherings and see if they attract any discriminatory comments or actions while being filmed.
They recently taped two turbaned Sikh men attending a football game in Arizona to see how people would treat them. They set them up with hidden microphones and cameras, etc. They want to do the same thing 2 or 3 other times (in various parts of the USA) with one or two Muslim men in each setting. They are looking for men who actually "look Muslim". They want a guy with no foreign accent whatsoever, a good thick beard, an outgoing personality, and someone willing to wear a kufi/skullcap during the filming. They also want someone who is fairly well accomplished and has contributed to society at large in some meaningful way.
