Nascar Team Races Pro-Police ‘Back The Blue’ Themed Car Just Days After Bubba Wallace Unveiled ‘Black Lives Matter’ Car

Just days after Bubba Wallace drove a #BlackLivesMatter themed car in the NASCAR Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway, a team in the second-tier XFINITY Series decided to run a #BacKTheBlue pro-police paint scheme at the Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend.

On Saturday, Kyle Weatherman’s No. 47 Mike Harmon Racing Chevrolet raced a car with #BackTheBlue written on the backside, while the hood of the car has a black and white American flag on it with a blue line through it which is a symbol of police support.

“A lot going on in the world right now and I wanted to express that most first responders are good people. My uncle is a firefighter and he would do anything to help save lives,”

Here’s Bubba’s car for comparison’s sake.

After receiving backlash on social media over his car Weatherman tweeted out that he supports black men and women as well as first responders.
