Numerous NASCAR Cup Series drivers such as  Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano & Ryan Blaney have all ended relationship with helmet designer BEAMdesigns on Thursday due to comments he made on social media after the organization announced a ban of the Confederate flag at its races and properties

Darrell Bubba Wallace, the only current full-time African American NASCAR driver in the Cup Series, seems very likely to cut his ties with Jason Beam of BEAMdesigns too.

“As person I’ve done business with in the past and ALWAYS respected the work you’ve done for ones in the industry. You made it clear of where you stand in today’s matter,” Wallace tweeted to Beam on Thursday. “All respect lost for ya dawg.”

Just a few hours later, other drivers tweeted they would no longer be using the helmet designer’s services due to his recent social comments.
