NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace took to social media on Sunday evening to ask the racing organization to get a little more creative with its concerts.

Popular artist The Weeknd was the lead performer during the Pepsi Super Bowl LV halftime show. The Grammy-winning singer took to the stage for the halftime performance that featured plenty of pyrotechnics and lights.

It also had men dressed up like The Weeknd in all black with red jackets and bandaged faces. The Weeknd performed a number of his many hit songs, including “Can’t Feel My Face,” “Earned It” and his most recent chart-topper, “Blinding Lights.”

Bubba Wallace was clearly impressed by the performance. He posted a tweet on his official Twitter page after the show asking for NASCAR to have similar concerts.

“Yoooo @NASCAR can we get concerts like this… #TheWeeknd” Wallace wrote on Twitter.

However, there were a lot of NASCAR fans who weren’t exactly in agreement with Wallace. Mark (@blaneyfanMark) wrote what many of us were thinking. He says, “no because we need Florida Georgia Line at 87 percent of the races.”

And JJ (@jj4hill) responded with a similar response: “no because Luke Combs >”

Lake Swimmer (@lakeswimmer2) says they thought the performance from The Weeknd was “horrid.”

“NOOOO!!! That was horrid. Guys with jocks on their heads. You couldn’t understand a single word. Thank gosh the weekend or whoever he is is over! 🤮”

Wallace is on record as saying 2021 would be the year of “no more excuses.”

“There’s no more excuses why we can’t run up front,” Wallace said. “And compete for wins and show the true talents that I believe I have … If Jan. 1 was (the Daytona 500), then I’m ready for it.”
