Saints Star RB Alvin Kamara Lands Job As NASCAR's Growth & Engagement Advisor
Saints star running back Alvin Kamara has landed an offseason job as NASCAR's first Growth and Engagement Advisor, he announced on his social media, Sunday.
On its website, NASCAR explains that Kamara will "work directly with NASCAR leadership on strategic planning and creative opportunities that support its fan development efforts."
"I'm excited they carved out a role for me," Kamara said Sunday, according to ESPN. "I got an office. I got a key card. I feel like I never had a job besides the NFL, so I got two jobs now. [Saints coach] Sean Payton going to have to give me some downtime."
Kamara only recently became a fan of NASCAR. Last June, he publically supported the sport's decision to ban Confederate flags from its racetracks. In response, NASCAR invited Kamara to attend his first race at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. There, he supported Bubba Wallace.
