Wallace at Chicagoland Speedway

This Saturday, Bubba Wallace will make his first NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Chicagoland Speedway. 


In two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts at Chicagoland Speedway in 2013 and 2014, Wallace earned finishes of 11th and sixth, respectively.  In 2014, Wallace started and finished sixth, leading 10 laps. 


So far in the 2015 NASCAR XFINITY Series season, Wallace ranks second in the number of quality passes, with 633.  He has completed the second-most laps inside the top-15 (2,267 of 2,480 or 91.4 percent), and holds the third-best average running position (8.7).

Recapping Michigan International Speedway

Wallace started third with a strong No. 6 Ford EcoBoost Mustang for last Saturday afternoon’s NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Michigan International Speedway.  After losing track position midway through the 125-Lap race and sustaining damage after a late race accident, Wallace ultimately finished 15th
