Bubba Wallaces’s Paint Scheme Will Send Powerful Message At Martinsville


June 9, 2020

Bubba Wallace’s car for the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway will look a bit different than it usually does.

Richard Petty Motorsports announced Tuesday that Wallace’s No. 43 car for Wednesday’s race will be all black, featuring the phrase “#BlackLivesMatter” on the back quarter panel. The hood will include a handshake with the words “compassion, love, understanding” printed beneath.

Check it out, via Wallace’s Instagram:

Wallace is the only black man racing at NASCAR’s highest level. Prior to the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday, Wallace donned a black “I CAN’T BREATHE” t-shirt in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

And come Wednesday, his message won’t be any different.
