After having a long non-public chat together about the recent events, which have sparked wide-spread protests across America in the wake of the death of George Floyd, NASCAR drivers Bubba Wallace and Ty Dillon came together for an amazing chat about the topic of African-American struggles in America.
The conversation, which also details to struggles that Wallace had to overcome as a minority trying to make his way up the ladder in motorsports is as amazing as it is refreshing.
It will definitely give you new perspective. It’s certainly worth the watch.
