One of the major storylines of the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season has been how the series and its drivers stood behind Bubba Wallace, which is examined in episode two of NASCAR 2020: Under Pressure, further documenting a year on the track unlike any in NASCAR history.
The episode “We Stand United” that debuted on Saturday, November 7, only on the MotorTrend App, showcases how Wallace, the only Black driver in the cup series, led the sport through the national conversation about racial justice brought on by George Floyd’s death. NASCAR has a reckoning with its past and makes the seismic decision to ban the Confederate flag at its events. Thrilling races at Martinsville and Talladega ramp up the intensity of the season’s summer stretch while Wallace’s advocacy brings new fans to the sport and inspires NASCAR to acts of solidarity and a commitment to cultural change.
Subsequent episodes of NASCAR 2020: Under Pressure will feature top drivers in the series going at it in their quest to bring home the title. You’ll be changing tires, looking on from the Race Control booth, and peering inside the cars as drivers and teams navigate the new normal; all as the pressure builds and the chase whittles down to the final Championship Four duel, won by Chase Elliott, who has been crowned the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series Champion.
Produced for the MotorTrend Group by NASCAR Productions, NASCAR 2020: Under Pressure has something for everyone, from huge NASCAR fans who will appreciate the behind-the-scenes access, to documentary buffs who should find the mix of action and stress of navigating the unparalleled nature of this season highly entertaining stuff.
