career timeline

William Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. is an American professional stock car racing driver. He competes full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series, driving the No. 23 Toyota Camry for 23XI Racing.

Wallace started racing in the Bandolero and Legends car racing series, as well as local late model events, at the age of nine. In 2005, he won 35 of the Bandolero Series' 48 races held that year. In 2008 he became the youngest driver to win at Franklin County Speedway in Virginia.
On October 26, Wallace put on a dominant performance at Martinsville, leading 96 laps to secure his first victory in the Truck Series.
On August 12, Wallace won his sixth and final full-time race in the Truck Series, moving on to the Xfinity series the following year.
On September 21, 2020, Michael Jordan announced he and NASCAR veteran Denny Hamlin had created a NASCAR team, named 23XI Racing with Wallace serving as the first driver in the No. 23.
On October 4, 2021, Wallace earned his first career Cup win at Talladega after the race was shortened due to rain. Wallace is the first Black driver to win a Cup Series race since Wendell Scott in 1963. Wallace also scored the first win for a McDonald's-sponsored car since Jimmy Spencer in 1994.
On August 31, 2022, it was announced that Bubba, along with crew chief Barker, would switch numbers at 23XI for the remainder of the season, as they move over to the No. 45 car as it seeks the owner's championship. On September 11, Wallace scored his second win at Kansas after leading the final 67 laps and holding off Hamlin.
In August 2023, Wallace raced his way into his first ever Cup playoffs,  finishing a career high 10th in overall standings.
