NASCAR adding new fans after Confederate flag ban

New Orleans Saints star running back Alvin Kamara shared on Twitter Sunday that he’s headed to his first NASCAR race at the Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Kamara posted a short video and said he’d be showing up on the NASCAR page, “doing a little something.”

Kamara was also rocking Bubba Wallace gear. The African-American racer has also been outspoken recently for the Black Lives Matter movement. He raced last Wednesday in a custom Black Lives Matter No. 43 car, and he’s been wearing a shirt that reads “I Can’t Breathe.”
