A remarkable scene unfolded at Talladega Superspeedway today before the start of the Geico 500 NASCAR race, as drivers and crew members from nearly every team stood in support of Bubba Wallace.

Almost all of the other teams pushed Wallace’s car to the front of the staging line and stood behind the driver for the National Anthem and other pre-race activities.

Someone had also spray-painted the infield grass with #IStandWithBubba, and NASCAR tweeted out the image in support.
