NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace has taken to social media to have fans vote on his new car’s paint job. Which did you choose? 

That’s right. You could be the deciding vote that chooses Bubba Wallace’s next paint scheme for his number 23 car. The popular driver took to social media to ask fans to decide on their favorite scheme for the race on June 26 at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania. 

Bubba Wallace Race Car Designs

We are going to try and describe these designs in the most basic, non-art major way possible. 

The first potential paint scheme for Bubba Wallace is a solid orange car. Tiny black specks or dots cover the vehicle with a black racing stripe going down the middle, driver’s side of the car. The white 23 is featured on the top and side of the race car. (For what it’s worth, this is my favorite. Clever design, but not too flashy.)

Bubba Wallace’s second design is more elaborate. The race car fades from yellow to orange in an ombre fashion but with blocked tiger stripes. Does that make sense? (If not, please see the photo.) ROOT insurance covers the hood of the car in massive white letters with the number 23 written on the sides and top of the vehicle. 

Finally, Bubba Wallace’s Toyota Camry has the option to look like a paint swirl-ish 70’s vibe. Still, the car is a variety of orange, red, yellow, and black. The number and sponsor remain in the same spot in white. 

So, which did you choose? With more than 900 votes, here are the results so far. 

Social Media Has Spoken… For Now

Well, the first scheme for Bubba Wallace’s car is in the lead with 44.9 percent of the vote. Scheme two is in last with 19.9 percent, and the third paint job option is in second place with 35.1 percent of the vote. 

If you haven’t voted yet, don’t worry! There are still three days left to chime in on which paint job Bubba Wallace should sport for his upcoming car.

Not all fans loved the options they were given, however. 

“I picked 3, but truthfully none of them are “pleasing” to look at IMO. I get it though, 1 is “glitched”, 2 is “Digital”, and 3 is “Groovy,” but none of them say “Root Insurance” to me. They say “Random Design with our name on it”.”

Although, we will hand it to Root Insurance. Their social media team is on their game.  

Check back in a few days to see which car is racing into first place for Bubba Wallace.
