NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace took to social media on Sunday evening share his thoughts on the recent race at Talladega.
On Sunday, NASCAR drivers participated in the Geico 500 at the Talladega Superspeedway. Although Brad Kesleowski walked away as the winner of the event, the race was one that NASCAR fans will not forget anytime soon.
We had everything at Talladega on Sunday — a number of big-time crashes, a late-race restart, and even overtime driving. And as for Bubba Wallace, he had himself quite the scare as well when Joey Logano’s No. 22 car went airborne over him. Luckily, both drivers are okay and Wallace’s No. 23 Toyota Camry only took slight damage due to the wreck.
As for Wallace’s reaction to Logano going airborne right over him, well, he says he may need a new pair of pants after that one.
“I’m telling you, my underwear is worse than the car right now,” Wallace hilariously told his race team.
Meanwhile, Bubba Wallace was able to win Stage 2 of the Geico 500 on Sunday. And although he is already looking ahead to his next race at Kansas Speedway, he wrote in an epic crowd photo that overall, it was a “decent day” at Talladega.
“Decent day. Onto Kansas,” Wallace captioned his latest photo on Twitter.

Bubba Wallace is currently the driver for Michael Jordan’s 23XI Racing Team. Jordan started his own team last year and in doing so, he became the first Black majority owner of a full-time NASCAR team since the 1960s. The 27-year-old Wallace has been racing since he was just a young kid, making his first official NASCAR appearance in 2010. Not only does he participate in the Xfinity Series, but he also drives in the Truck Series as well.
