VFL Alvin Kamara is enjoying his first NASCAR race right now in Miami. His newly forged fandom for racing comes after NASCAR banned confederate flags from its events. 

Kamara watched the cup series race on Wednesday and now he's witnessing the Dixie Vodka 400 first hand. 

The Saints running back is particularly a fan of Bubba Wallace, the only black full-time driver in the cup series.

Wallace sported a paint scheme that said Black Lives Matter during Wednesday night's race in Martinsville, Va., and as he told NBC in Birmingham, Wallace was mentally prepared for some of the negative reactions he received.
