- Bubba Watson bought the car at auction in 2012.

- Will be painting over the Confederate flag with an American one, tweeting: "All men ARE created equal, I believe that so I will be painting the American flag over the roof of the General Lee #USA"

- He originally wanted to drive it at a Nascar event back in 2012 but even back then Nascar didn't want to endorse a car with the Confederate flag on it. Back then he responded, "Obviously, I don’t stand for the Confederate flag. The Confederate flag was not used for what people see it as today, so that’s sad. But NASCAR was built on moonshining, so the show was built on moonshining. I thought it was fun. I didn’t buy the car to get publicity; I bought it because I love it.”
