Bubba Wallace wore a shirt that read “I Can’t Breathe Black Lives Matter” before Sunday’s NASCAR race in Atlanta, and now the circuit’s only full-time African American Cup driver is pushing for change at the track.
Wallace, who drives the No. 43 car for Richard Petty Motorsports, recognizes his position will not sit well with some people.
