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!

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.
