NASCAR became one of the first sports leagues to resume following the COVID-19 pause, and the sport soon began to shift its attention to another problem well beyond the race track: racial inequality.
As the death of George Floyd and countless other acts of racial injustice sparked cultural change around the country, Bubba Wallace, NASCAR’s lone Black driver, led the sport through the national conversation about racial justice and inclusion.
In “We Stand United,” Episode 2 of MotorTrend’s docuseries “NASCAR 2020: Under Pressure,” Wallace shares his thoughts on the journey to take a stand against racism while trying to perform at his best in the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Chevrolet. The episode shares new perspectives on an emotional few weeks over the summer, a movement that sparked NASCAR’s ban on the Confederate flag as drivers and crew members rallied around Wallace in a monumental moment at Talladega Superspeedway.
