“Solid day indeed, appreciate all the birthday wishes!” the race car driver writes. “The last 26 was filled with a lot of… good and bad. Excited to start a new chapter! 27 feeling like 67. Back is KILLED already! Much love!”

“Wishing you the happiest of birthdays!” one user writes. “I hope the coming year finds you winning a race or three…and then the championship!”

Bubba Wallace Tweets About the Viral Housefly on Mike Pence’s Head

Earlier this week, Vice President Mike Pence took on Sen. Kamala Harris in the first and only Vice Presidential debate. One of the most talked-about moments from the event involved a fly that landed on Pence’s head for nearly two minutes.

During Wednesday night’s debate, Wallace took to Twitter to join in on the conversation about the viral fly. “Is that the fly of Steve Harvey from Racing Stripes?!??” he tweeted.

Furthermore, Wallace jokingly answered a Twitter poll that he hopes that he would vote for the fly. Twitter user Brett Griffin posted a poll asking: “Who would you rather see on DBC? #Debate202.” The poll options included Joe Biden, Donald Trump, Kamala Harris, and Mike Pence.

Wallace responded to the tweet by simply writing, “The fly.”
