Black Lives Matter movement

At AMS, NASCAR held a moment of silence to honor George Floyd and other victims of racial injustice, stopping the field on the frontstretch while NASCAR President Steve Phelps addressed the drivers. NASCAR official and U.S. Army veteran Kirk Price knelt during the pre-race ceremonies. 

This week, Bubba Wallace joined CNN's Don Lemon to discuss NASCAR's stance on the BLM movement and went as far as to say that the series should ban the Confederate flag next.

At Martinsville, Wallace will run a special "Black Lives Matter" paint scheme.
