Bubba Wallace had a great day at Michigan and came close to winning, but Kevin Harvick was fast and eventually took the win. After the race, he had an interesting interview. He is happy with the result but seems to think he could have done much more.
“I’m just replaying everything I could have done,” Wallace, 28, said, as quoted by motorsport.“Took the top (lane) there on the restart. Thought I could hang with (Harvick), and just got to racing (Larson) and (Joey Logano).
And (Logano) did a good job of getting another Ford contract, helping a Ford win. “Just all in all an incredible weekend. Appreciate my team. Wished we could have got Toyota in the Victory Lane. She was fast all week, man.
Just I’ll wear this one on my heart for a while. “I failed everybody”.
Bubba Wallace: I’m a person that looks more at the negatives
Wallace thinks this is a great weekend, but he emphasized that he is more focused on negative things and that is what frustrates him at the moment.
“Just great job all weekend. It was a hell of a job for our team. There were a lot of positives from this weekend, but I’m a person that looks more at the negatives and I need to change that,” he said. “I want to win so bad and this was the best opportunity”.
Denny Hamlin went to Buba Wallace after the race and gave him some advice; “The whole 23XI team just did a phenomenal job from beginning to end and they gave him a rocket. This was a well put together weekend for all of them.
“It’s Dave Rogers. It’s Mike Wheeler. “It’s Billy Scott helping set up both of these cars. It’s just a lot of puzzle pieces that those guys are starting to do right and have good results”.
