Bubba Wallace achieved a big win in Kansas. It is also his second Cup victory, and now he has a good chance to continue at the same pace. Bob Pockrass, a famous NASCAR reporter, praised Bubba Wallace and what he did in Kansas, but also earlier.
“A historic victory as he became the first black driver in NASCAR cup series history to win multiple cup races and you can say what you want about Talladega you’d be wrong but you can say what you want about that being on a drafting track and a rain-shortened win and maybe it doesn’t mean as much but you can’t say anything to criticize his win today,” Bob Pockrass said.
Pockrass praised certain things about Wallace, primarily his concentration and focus. “He had the best car and he did everything he needed to do to win. He executed a green flag pit stop flawlessly. He got down pit road better than other drivers he increased his lead thanks to what he was able to do getting on and off pit road.
And he held the lead he didn’t panic,” Bob Pockrass added.
Losing at Michigan to Harvick certainly wasn't easy for Wallace. “You know this you can look back to Michigan a couple of months ago restarting on the front row and getting beaten by Kevin Harvick.
You know a lot of people get beaten by Kevin Harvick he’s a hall of fame driver so there was nothing to be down about after that one but certainly, he was,” says Bob Pockrass. Bob is optimistic about Bubba's future.
“And here today he comes out and he wins this race at Kansas not only did he show that he can win races on the cup series level but I think today showed that he’ll win more races at the cup level and that he could be a contender when it comes to the playoffs in future seasons,” added Bob Pockrass.
