New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara will attend Sunday’s race in Miami in the wake of the sport’s decision to ban the Confederate flag from all events and properties. 

Kamara tweeted a picture of Bubba Wallace merchandise he received with the caption, “See y’all tomorrow @NASCAR.”

Per B/R’s Master Tesfatsion, Kamara’s decision to attend the Dixie Vodka 400 is a “direct result of NASCAR banning the confederate flag.”

When NASCAR announced it was banning the Confederate flag Wednesday, Kamara issued a response on Twitter:
