BUBBA WALLACE

Darrell “Bubba” Wallace drives the No. 23 Toyota Camry for Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin's racing team, 23XI Racing, in the NASCAR Cup Series, the top racing circuit in America. 

A graduate of NASCAR Drive for Diversity program, Bubba first drew headlines in 2013 when he became the first African-American in 50 years to win in one of NASCAR’s three national series', the Truck Series. This would go one to be Bubba's first of six NASCAR Truck Series wins.

In 2018, Bubba became the first African-American to become a full-time driver at the highest level of NASCAR, the Cup Series. In 2021, Bubba became the first Black driver to win a race in the Cup Series since Hall of Famer Wendell Scott at Speedway Park on Dec. 1, 1963.

As the sport's lone Black driver, Bubba has played a critical part in NASCAR's push for diversity, inclusion and equality, including the banning of the Confederate flag at all NASCAR races.
