NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace Gets Engaged to Longtime Girlfriend
When it comes to proposals, people often get very creative. Some pop the question during a romantic candlelight dinner, some prefer asking while strolling on a beach, and others go the traditional way and take permission from the parents.
But unlike them, NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace said those four magical words while trekking on a vacation!
On July 30, 2021, Wallace surprised everyone with his engagement news. The racer took to his social media handles and shared some pictures of his waterfall engagement. Here’s a flashback of his once-in-a-lifetime moment.
Bubba Wallace’s sweet surprise
While vacationing in Oregon with his longtime girlfriend Amanda Carter and his friends, Wallace got down on one knee and proposed to Carter. Last Friday, he posted a few photos of the special moment on his Instagram handle, and fans couldn’t stop gushing.
In the first picture, he can be seen on one knee with a ring in his hand as Carter stares at him in shock. In other photographs, the couple is hugging and kissing each other while showing off the engagement ring. Their dog Asher can also be seen in all of the frames.
Not only did Wallace share the news, but he also added a fun touch by complimenting the images with a sweet caption. The 27-year-old wrote that he had no idea why he waited so long! Tagging his fiancée, he expressed his delight with the words, “here’s to forever.” Carter also shared a photo of them standing in front of Latourell Falls on her Instagram feed. In the pic, Wallace is pointing towards her finger with the ring on it. Adding a funny caption, Carter wrote, “he did good.”
In addition to Insta, Wallace also shared the pictures on Twitter. Captioning them, he wrote, “The wait is over!” Soon after he shared the news, his supporters filled the comments section with congratulations messages. Celebrities like Arizona Cardinals quarterback, Kyler Murray, and Fit for a King band’s drummer, Jared Easterling, also wished the couple.
Wallace’s position in NASCAR
In June 2017, when driver Aric Almirola got injured, Richard Petty Motorsports asked Wallace to drive in place of him. At the time, the team had no idea that one day Wallace would become their permanent member. Four months later, when Almirola decided to part ways with the team, Richard Petty officially signed Wallace. Since then, one after the other, Wallace has given amazing performances and has carved a special place in NASCAR fans’ hearts.
The racer has become such a significant part of the team, that last June when someone placed a noose in his Talladega Superspeedway garage stall, all the drivers and crews stood together in support of him. They pushed his car to the front of the pit road and demonstrated that the game is free from racial discrimination.
