Bubba Wallace had a great race, he tried to get to first place in the Daytona 500, but it wasn't enough, so he has to settle for second place. “Great Speedweeks – we’ll come home second,” Wallace said, as quoted by motorsport “I’m going to be pissed off about this one for a while.
I was happy on the first second place we got a couple years ago. “This one sucks, when you’re that close, but all-in-all, happy for our team, happy for our partners, and on to California”.
Bubba Wallace seems dejected, but he is happy for his team, and the effort they put in to get a good result “What could have been, right? Man, need to talk about some happy stuff here,” he said.
“I’m just dejected, but the thing that keeps me up is just the hard work that we put into our speedway stuff and the hard work from everybody at 23-11 (Racing), proud of them, can’t thank them enough. “I knew this was a big move last year for me to go out and be competitive, and we’re showing that”.
Bubba Wallace and continuation of the season
This start indicates that Wallace and his team could have even better results in the coming period. Clearly, they have what it takes; speed and quality, but of course, strong competition should also be taken into account.
Still, Wallace seems optimistic, and obviously has the capacity for even greater results. The season is long, they have to show what they can do “When you come out of the gates like that, it’s empowering, it’s encouraging.
So, thanks, everybody, back at the shop,” Wallace said. “Back-to-back superspeedway wins, that would have been awesome, especially with it being the 500. “I thought our Toyota teammates did good work until they got picked off 1-2-3 throughout the race, so we just had to survive”.
