Wallace at Dover International Speedway

This Saturday, Bubba Wallace will make is second NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Dover International Speedway.  His previous start came in the fall of 2012, where Wallace earned the pole in just his fourth start in the series, ultimately finishing 12th.  In that start, Wallace ran the entire race inside the top-15.

In the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Dover International Speedway, Wallace earned the pole and led 119 of 200 laps, before finishing 10th.  In his most recent start at the Monster Mile in 2014, Wallace started 15th and finished 16th.

In three NASCAR K&N Pro Series East races at Dover International Speedway, Wallace earned two poles and one victory, along with a second-place result.  Wallace led 96 laps in his three starts at the Monster Mile.

So far in the 2015 NASCAR XFINITY Series season, Wallace ranks first in the number of quality passes, with 585.  He has completed the most laps inside the top-15 (1,989 of 2,155 or 92 percent), and holds the second best average running position (8.9).

Bubba Wallace on racing at Dover International Speedway

“I’m really excited to get to Dover this season.  This place is my favorite track to race at.  It’s the only place I’ve raced where you have to give respect to get respect.  We’ve always ran well there.  I have a lot of K&N experience there as well as experience in the Truck Series.  I’m ready to climb aboard our Ford EcoBoost Mustang!”
