When the off-season rolls around, NASCAR drivers like Denny Hamlin become total couch potatoes, glued to NFL games. It’s like they can’t get enough! But guess what? The feeling’s mutual. Alvin Kamara of the New Orleans Saints is so into NASCAR that, back in June 2021, he even joined them to help boost their game.

And he’s not just cheering from the sidelines. He’s out there, making a splash. The evidence is that he recently rolled up to the Superdome in this super cool NASCAR-style car, right before the Saints went head-to-head with the Panthers. Also, he’s teamed up with NASCAR to drop some amazing merch for the block party after the game.

But Alvin Kamara is not just walking the talk. He showed up to Sunday’s game in a custom NASCAR sports car, decked out with his race team’s logo. He was even wearing one of his new jackets. His dive into NASCAR isn’t out of the blue, though. It’s all thanks to his buddy Bubba Wallace, who’s been big on pushing for racial justice in NASCAR. Remember when NASCAR banned the Confederate flag and Bubba Wallace drove that “Black Lives Matter” car? That’s when Alvin Kamara got into it.

With Taysom Hill out injured, Alvin Kamara would most likely be hoping to bring some of that NASCAR speed to the football field. Even though he had a bit of a rough patch with the NFL over some Vegas nightclub drama, he’s bouncing back big time. Also, it’s not just Kamara repping NASCAR at the game. The 2023 Xfinity Champ was also there, sharing a cool moment with him before the big showdown.

Cole Custer swaps the track for the sidelines

Winning a championship sure has its perks. Take Cole Custer, the 2023 Xfinity series champ. He’s taking a break from racing to catch some NFL action from the sidelines, watching the Saints and Panthers go at it, which might be a whole different vibe from his usual racing scene.

Custer’s not flying solo, though. He’s hanging out with Alvin Kamara, and they even snapped a photo together. While everyone’s usually hyped about the Cup Series, bagging the Xfinity title has its sweet rewards, like front-row seats to NFL games.

Alvin Kamara was in his element, totally owning the field. Fun fact: a lot of NASCAR drivers root for the Panthers since they’re like the hometown team in North Carolina. Furthermore, Custer was seen rocking one of Kamara’s NASCAR hoodies. It’s pretty cool to see a NASCAR champ chilling at an NFL game, just like any other fan.

One take at a time

Controversies, gossip, and breakneck speeds? Count me in! While F1 has its charm, NASCAR helps me relive those "Roadrash" gaming days. My favorite among the drivers has to be Tyler Reddick. The 23XI Racing pilot is not only likable but also a complete beast when he is on track, more specifically, road courses.
