NASCAR Driver Kyle Weatherman Debuts #BackTheBlue Car After Bubba Wallace Displays #BlackLivesMatter Vehicle

After NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace debuted a “Black Lives Matter” design on his racecar several weeks ago, a fellow driver decided to counter that vehicle by revealing a car that represented a “Blue Lives Matter” design of his own, according to Yahoo Sports.

NASCAR driver Kyle Weatherman brought out the latest design on the car he drives at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Mike Harmon Racing proudly announced the new “ThinBlueLine” design, complete with a “Blue Lives Matter” flag across the hood via social media.

Although the “#BackTheBlue” car doesn’t explicitly say Blue Lives Matter on it, it has rubbed critics the wrong way as it seems to send the opposite message Wallace displayed on his vehicle.

Weatherman took to Twitter to state that the inspiration for the design came from his uncle, who was a firefighter.

In response to a Twitter user, David Ragan, who wrote, “Can’t we choose the good on both sides?? I support the Black men and women of this country and also support all first responders.”
Weatherman responded to also assure everyone that he “absolutely” supports “the Black men and women of this country.”
