This isn't some low-level position, either. According to NASCAR's website, Kamara will be working "directly with NASCAR leadership on strategic planning and creative opportunities that support its fan development efforts."

The four-time Pro Bowler will also work with the Charlotte-based NASCAR Marketing team and "contribute to planning, ideation and activation around fan development and engagement." He recently shared his excitement for this new endeavor in a press release.

"It's an honor to be able to team up with NASCAR and be their first-ever Growth and Engagement Advisor. I'm excited to use my passion as a fan to help shape their long-term efforts to grow the sport."

Kamara first showed interest in the sport about a year ago when he attended a race in support of Bubba Wallace Jr. The Saints star also used his juice chain, The Big Squeezy, to sponsor driver Ryan Vargas' car in the NASCAR Xfinity Series season opener last February.

It looks like New Orleans head coach Sean Payton will just have to learn how to share his coveted starting running back. The Saints head into the 2021 season with odds set at +110 to make the playoffs and odds set at +3000 to win the Super Bowl, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
