Oh, brother, those NASCAR drivers know how to have fun. This time, Bubba Wallace is snapping towels with Chase Elliott over his mustache.
Wallace took some time on Sunday to post side-by-side photos of Elliott with his new look with Wallace’s dog, Asher. In the post, Bubba Wallace asks a rather important question…one that will have you picking sides and play nicely.
Mind you, this online “who looks better?” contest is all in good fun. Wallace and Elliott share space on NASCAR speedways throughout the season.
Elliott has been spending time preparing for next Sunday’s Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona along with fellow NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson.
They spent five seasons together racing for Hendricks Motorsports as NASCAR Cup Series teammates. Johnson the overall crown in their first season with Hendricks in 2016, his seventh career Series title. Meanwhile, Elliott won his first Series title last season.
Bubba Wallace Makes Moves To Join New Crew In 2021
Bubba Wallace admits that he enjoys driving for sponsors Door Dash, McDonald’s, Dr. Pepper, Columbia Sportswear, and Root Insurance. Last season, Wallace drove the No. 43 car for Richard Petty Motorsports.
Entering the 2021 NASCAR season, though, he’s changed teams.
Bubba Wallace now will be driving for 23XI Racing, pronounced “23 Eleven,” which is owned by two familiar sports names: legendary NBA Hall of Fame player Michael Jordan and fellow NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin. Hamlin will be behind the No. 11 car for Joe Gibbs Racing.
He’s looking forward to still racing for McDonald’s, who has been a longtime sponsor of Wallace’s out on the speedways.
Chase Elliott Remembers Best Advice His Father Gave Him
Well, Chase Elliott has been making a name for himself and he already had a history to live up to in NASCAR. Bill Elliott, Chase’s father, won more than 40 NASCAR Cup Series races and took home the overall title in 1988.
Chase said the best advice that he received from his father was to enjoy these moments “because these are things you can’t take for granted.”
“You don’t know when your last race win is, you don’t know what tomorrow brings,” Chase Elliott said in regard to his father’s kindly wisdom.
Bill Elliott made it pretty clear to Chase that he had a choice when it came to driving for a living.
“I told him early on, ‘If you want to race, race. If you don’t want to race, don’t race,'” Bill Elliott said. “Don’t do it on my account. If that’s what you really truly want to do, do it.”
So far, Chase Elliott has been doing well and looks to retain his NASCAR Cup Series title this season.
