Roush Fenway Racing, Bubba Wallace Team Up With Bleacher Report
CONCORD, N.C. (April 22, 2015) – Roush Fenway Racing and Bubba Wallace have teamed up with Bleacher Report in an effort to amplify the two huge sporting weekends on the horizon. Wallace, an avid sports fan, will carry Bleacher Report on his No. 6 Ford Mustang this weekend when NASCAR rolls into Richmond International Raceway.
“I’m a big fan of Bleacher Report,” said Wallace. “And it’s pretty awesome to be partnered up with them this week. I know there is a lot going on in the next couple of weeks in the sports world, with the big Pacquiao/Mayweather fight, the Kentucky Derby, the NBA playoffs kicking off and of course the NFL draft.
“At the same time we have a couple of huge races in Richmond and Talladega,” added Wallace. “It’s a great time to be a sports fan for sure and nobody gives better insight than Bleacher Report, so it’s exciting to team up with them.”
One of the most promising up and coming drivers in NASCAR, Wallace heads into Richmond fourth in the NASCAR XFINITY Series point standings; only seven races into his rookie season. Last season he took the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series by storm, winning four races and finishing third in the points in only his second season.
