Emotional Race For NASCAR's Bubba Wallace

Race day was an emotional one for NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace.

He ran the GEICO 500 at Talladega on Monday, after storms forced a delay.

The race came two days after a noose was found hanging in his garage. Wallace is the only full-time Black driver in NASCAR's premier Cup Series.

Before the green flag, Wallace's fellow drivers, crew, and other NASCAR officials walked behind his car down pit road to show their support.

Wallace has become an outspoken advocate, even driving a #BlackLivesMatter car in a recent race.

Wallace has also led the charge for NASCAR to finally ban the display of Confederate Flags at its race tracks.

Five-thousand fans were allowed to watch Monday's race at the Super Speedway, some wearing T-shirts support George Floyd and #BLM.

The NASCAR cup series moves on to Pocono this weekend.
