The Ally 400 at the Nashville Superspeedway is underway and Bubba Wallace is hoping to win his first race of 2022 .

As he competes , he has two special guests there to cheer him on . Prior to the start of today's race , Wallace's 23XI racing team posted photos

of Wallace hanging out with ESPN's Sage Steele and Miami Heat superstar Bam Adebayo . Steele and Adebayo were at the event

as honorary race officials along with Vanderbilt head basketball coach Jerry Stackhouse and social media influencer Justin Nunley .

" [ Sage Steele ] and Bam Adebayo in the house , " 23XI Racing tweeted . Their post has over 300 likes so far .

Steele took to Twitter later to thank NASCAR for the opportunity to be a part of the event . Adebayo also took to Twitter and

retweeted the videos and photos from his appearance at the Nashville Superspeedway .

The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series has been a difficult one for Bubba Wallace to say the least . Since narrowly losing the Daytona 5

00 , Wallace has only one top 10 finish in the last 15 races . Wallace currently ranks 25th in the NASCAR Cup Series Drivers ' championship standings .

While there's still races where he can make up ground , each poor finish increases the chances he'll have his worst ranking of the last three years .

Perhaps Bam Adebayo or Sage Steele will be a good luck charm for him . The NASCAR Ally 400 is being played on NBC .
