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 been outspoken recently for the Black Lives Matter movement. He raced last Wednesday in an awesome custom Black Lives Matter No. 43 car, and he’s been wearing a shirt that reads “I Can’t Breathe.”
The announcement is also the “direct” reason Kamara is on his way to Homestead, Florida, this Sunday.

A direct result of NASCAR banning the confederate flag. Alvin live tweeted Wednesday’s race following the statement
Alvin trains in Miami during the offseason. So NASCAR extended an invite https://t.co/STwDAbz1Qi
I’d say this was a net positive for NASCAR.
