Damian Lillard doesn’t know much about NASCAR, and Darrell Wallace Jr. wants to change that.
Lillard on Friday was asked by a Twitter user what he knows about NASCAR. The Portland Trail Blazers star responded by mentioning the controversy surrounding NASCAR’s banning of the confederate flag, while also noting he knows “a few” drivers.
Wallace quote-tweeted Lillard with this reaction:
Lillard’s team recently was eliminated from the NBA Playoffs, so he now has plenty of time to attend a NASCAR playoff race that permits fans.
As for Wallace, he failed to qualify for the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs, but still is set to race in Sunday’s Cook Out Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.
