If you’ve been paying attention, New Orleans Saints star running back Alvin Kamara has become an avid NASCAR fan since attending a race at Homestead-Miami Speedway last year in support of Bubba Wallace.

Now, he has become a NASCAR sponsor.

After showing interest in getting more involved in NASCAR on social media, a perfect storm happened with Ryan Vargas, who is behind the wheel of the No. 6 JD Motorsports Chevrolet.

Vargas tweeted that he was without a sponsor for his upcoming race in the NASCAR Xfinity Series race.

Kamara saw the tweet, shot his shot with Vargas, and it all fell into place.

“I stumble across Ryan’s tweet talking about how he doesn’t have a sponsor for this week’s race,” Kamara told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

“So I’m like, OK. So in my head, I have no knowledge of what it takes to sponsor a car, none of that, so … I have a number in my head where I’m like this is probably some big money to do this. But whatever, let me see. So I tweet Ryan back.

“I land, call Tony, talk to him, and I’m like, ‘Oh shoot, I can do this.’ So I’m like, ‘Why not?’ I was like, ‘Man, I got something I can market right now.’ Ryan obviously didn’t have a sponsor so, I’m like, ‘Man, why not?’ And then I actually like the sport. I’m like, it’s perfect. I feel like I kind of manifested it when I tweeted it on Sunday.”

So now, Kamara’s juice bar chain The Big Squeezy will be Vargas’ sponsor at Daytona International Speedway’s road course.

Let this be another lesson to us all that you should always shoot your shot.
