BEYOND THE FAIRWAY
NASCAR Cup Series driver Bubba Wallace, who became the second Black driver to win a Cup Series race with his first career victory this year at Talladega, joined Doug Smith and Will Lowery on this week’s edition of Beyond the Fairway to discuss his start in racing, his historic victory at Talladega, and his affinity for golf. Below are highlights. Click here to listen to the entire conversation.
Wallace on his historic victory at Talladega: “I had told myself going into the weekend that we were going to win…it was only a feeling I’ve had twice in my career, and two times I’ve won and capitalized on it.”
Wallace on his beginnings in golf: “First time picking up a golf club for me, I was hooked. Understanding what it takes to be successful, I still haven’t figured that out, but it’s always that one shot that keeps you coming back.”
Wallace on his affinity for golf: “Three and a half hours for a round of golf is good for me. It’s peaceful, quiet…my (favorite shot) is a crisp 6 or 7 iron on the green. That’s the shot that keeps me coming back.”
Wallace on the 23XI Racing team’s mindset: “There will be more eyeballs on us because of the situation we’re in, so don’t let that take you away from getting the job done. We’re not here chasing cameras, we’re here chasing wins and trying to be the best we can be because when that happens, the whole sport will change. Just like at Talladega, we have to keep doing that – keep showing the world what we can do.”
