A Huge Show of Support for Bubba Wallace Before Yesterday’s Race

BUBBA WALLACE got a HUGE show of support before the Geico 500 yesterday at Talladega when dozens of drivers and their crews walked behind as his #43 car was pushed to the starting line.


(It looks even more impressive from Bubba’s perspective.)


82-year-old team owner RICHARD PETTY also joined the procession to support his driver.

On Sunday, someone put a noose in Wallace’s garage stall.  Wallace is NASCAR’s only black full-time driver.  He’s the guy who recently convinced NASCAR to ban the confederate flag from its races.

NASCAR is going all-in on finding out who’s responsible for the noose.  They’re even working with the FBI . . . and whoever did it will be banned FOR LIFE.


(Bubba came in 14th place, by the way.  Ryan Blaney won.)
