Bio

Bubba Wallace enters his third season in the NASCAR XFINITY Series for Roush Fenway Racing. The 2017 season will see Wallace behind the wheel of the No. 6 Ford Mustang, once again teaming up with crew chief Seth Barbour.

Last season, Wallace made the field for the inaugural NASCAR XFINITY Series Chase for the Championship, closing out the season 11th in points.  Wallace earned three top-five and nine top-10 finishes in his sophomore effort.

In his first year with Roush Fenway, Wallace competed in his first fulltime season in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, earning one pole, three top-five and 14 top-10 finishes, while completing 99.6 percent of the total laps.

In 2014 Wallace competed fulltime in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS), earning an impressive four victories, two poles, nine top-five and 14 top-10 finishes en route to a third place finish in the final season standings.

In addition to his full time NCWTS schedule, Wallace ran two NASCAR XFINITY Series races in 2014 with a best start of third (Talladega) and a best finish of seventh (Daytona).

In his first full NCWTS season in 2013, Wallace turned heads with a victory at one of the circuit’s toughest tracks: Martinsville Speedway.  The young driver led 96 of 200 laps on the way to his first NASCAR National Series win, becoming the first African-American to win a NASCAR race on the national level in nearly 50 years.

The season also marked another milestone, as Wallace became just the fourth African-American to race a full season in one of NASCAR’s elite series.  Wallace finished the 2013 NCWTS season with one win, one pole, five top-five and 12 top-10 finishes, finishing eighth in the standings in his rookie campaign.  After securing the pole at Dover International Speedway on May 31, 2013, Wallace became the youngest winner of the “21 Means 21” award.

At the age of 18, Wallace made his NASCAR debut in May of 2012 at Iowa Speedway in the NXS, starting eighth and finishing ninth.  In his four NXS starts in 2012, the young driver tallied one pole and three top-10 finishes, leading 36 laps in his second visit to Iowa Speedway in August.

Wallace competed full time in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2012.  During the season, he earned one win, one pole, six top-five and seven top-10 finishes in 14 starts.  Struggling to match his success of his previous two seasons, Wallace closed out the 2012 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East seventh in the point standings.

Prior to 2012, Wallace spent two years racing for Revolution Racing as part of the NASCAR Diversity Program.  He made history when in the first race of the 2010 season he became the NASCAR K&N Pro Series’ youngest and first African American to win a race at Greenville-Pickens Speedway.

His second win of the season came later in the season at Lee USA Speedway in New Hampshire.  Wallace captured the K&N Pro Series East 2010 Rookie of the Year honors with two wins, five top-five and seven top-10 finishes in the short 10-race season.  He finished third in the point standings.

In 2011, Wallace put together another impressive campaign with three wins, three poles, five top-five and 11 top-10 finishes. He finished the 2011 season second in the point standings.

In addition to his NASCAR K&N Series success, Wallace also won the 2008 Rookie of the Year title in the United Auto Racing Association (UARA) Series and finished sixth overall in the point standings that year.

That same season, he became the youngest driver to ever win a race at Franklin County Speedway in Virginia, his first victory in Late Models.  He returned to racing Late Models in 2009 and went on to win three races and earn 11 top-five finishes in 23 Late Model starts, nine of which were part of the UARA season.

Wallace’s racing career began in 2004 when he began competing in Jr. Sportsman Champ Karts.  He finished his first season second overall in points at the Carolina Asphalt Racing Winter Series.

He moved to Bandoleros in 2005 and won 35 of the 48 races he entered, posting 40 top-five finishes.  Wallace became the first driver to win five races in a single week.  In addition, he competed against much older competition in the Outlaw Division and won all but one race in 2005.

Wallace moved up to Legends in 2006 and completed a phenomenal rookie season with 11 wins, 27 top-five and 34 top-10 finishes in 38 total starts.

Born in Mobile, Ala., Wallace and his family moved to North Carolina for his father’s work when he was just two years old.  His interest in racing began by chance at the age of nine when his father purchased a motorcycle and took it in to a shop to have improvements made on it.  The gentleman at the shop invited the Wallace’s out to a go-kart race and when Darrell, Sr. asked Darrell, Jr. if he’d like to give it a shot, he responded yes and was quickly hooked.

Wallace also played basketball, but is now fully focused on his racing career.  He has become an accomplished photographer and frequently displays his talents through his twitter and instagram accounts.  He also enjoys paintball and playing video games.  He currently resides in Davidson, N.C.
