Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. is just 25 years old but is already making a big name for himself on the NASCAR scene.
When he came in second at the 2018 Daytona 500 he set a record for best ever finish by an African American in the race. He’s also made history and holds a place in NASCAR’s record books as the first and only African American to win a Truck Series race.
