Bubba Wallace, the only full-time black driver in NASCAR's Cup Series, called for NASCAR to ban confederate flags from its events. SHOCKINGLY, just two days later his dream became a reality!
The presence of the Confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry. Bringing people together around a love for racing and the community that it creates is what makes our fans and sport special. The display of the Confederate flag will be prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties.
No one should feel uncomfortable when they come to a NASCAR race. It starts with Confederate flags. Get them out of here. They have no place for them.Props to NASCAR and everybody involved. ... There's a lot of emotions on the racetrack and off the racetrack that are riding with us. Tonight is something special. Today has been special. Hats off to NASCAR.
Bubba Wallace also went on to print #BlackLivesMatter on the side of his racing car!
