Bubba Wallace, and NASCAR as a whole, made a statement Sunday afternoon.
Before the green flag waved at the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Wallace wore a “I CAN’T BREATHE” shirt, in reference to a movement which hopes to put a stop to racial injustice.
Wallace, the only black man currently racing at NASCAR’s top level, paired it with an American flag face mask.
