Recapping Daytona International Speedway

Wallace finished 34th in the No. 6 Cheez-It Ford Mustang at Daytona International Speedway after being collected in a late race incident.


Bubba Wallace on racing at Kentucky Speedway

“I’m looking forward to heading to Kentucky this weekend. It’s my first XFINITY start there, but we are coming off a strong run there in the Truck Series last year, so I feel comfortable climbing aboard my Ford EcoBoost Mustang and showcasing the speed we have had all year long. Kentucky would be a perfect place for our first win. We’ve just got to get our Mustang handling well over the bumps and we should have a good shot.”
