The fan was very appreciative.

“I’ve been watching NASCAR for years but only just recently got back into it thanks to Bubba Wallace. We’re both biracial so it’s extremely personal to me!!” the fan tweeted.

Wallace, 26, has been competing in NASCAR’s Cup Series since 2017. He races the No. 43 car for Richard Petty Motorsports, though he’s been getting interest from other teams heading into 2021. {The Spun}
