This.. is actually pretty fuging incredible, not going to lie. Never been into Motorsports, but how can I not give it a try now. 
 

@TheRumGone I never knew that. Good poo.

this is a great band that a lot of southern whites I know love. The lead singer’s dad was apart of the muscle shoals rhythm section that played on a lot of Aretha Franklin, Bobby Womack, Etta James and Wilson Pickett recordings. 

They’ve been rocking with BLM org since day one. Their 2016 album talked a lot about Trayvon and the Ferguson riots. 

sorry for hijacking nascar thread dbt is a personal favorite band of mine.

NASCAR is a cool sport...been trying to tell you all that

everybody likes cars...and the cars on the tracks now are like rocket ships

give it a try, it’s not the way it was yrs ago...and yes, many old timers don’t like that

So... crowd sizes at future NASCAR races will be about the same size they are now.... all over a fugging flag representing the losing side of a civil war.

Never thought I'd see the day a white NASCAR driver literally named "Bubba" would rock an American Flag surgical mask and a BLM t-shirt. (Although, if I'm being honest, the reasons I wouldn't have imagined that particular set of circumstances are legion. But still...)

I know nothing about NASCAR, but I now have a favorite driver.

Also, fug Kyle Busch. (So, I guess I know one thing about NASCAR)

how do you pick a racer to root for? is it by like location like other sports? or do you just randomly pick based on personality/skill?

As others have pointed out, Bubba Wallace is black.

NGL I kept up with NASCAR for a few years back in the day. I was an Earnhardt fan. Before he died, I had already kinda lost interest. When he died, it was pretty much the end of it for me. I tried to like Jr. and people like Harvick that came after him driving the #3, but I was just out of it.

I haven't given two craps about it for a long time, and I don't know a lot of the modern drivers or anything. But I might jump on this Bubba Wallace train for a bit.

I hope he wins in the BLM car, for sure.

i was a huge #3 car fan...no doubt, when he died everything changed

but the sport is now very modern, you about need an engineering degree to be a crew chief, technology is thru the roof

its an exciting sport

"Never thought I'd see the day a Black NASCAR driver literally named "Bubba" would rock an American Flag surgical mask and a BLM t-shirt."

I have to say, my amended statement is somehow even more improbable!

But Bubba's my guy! Will be rooting him the next time they have a fasty-go-round in one of the big circle houses.
