Bubba Wallace to compete in Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway

Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks

Bubba Wallace will drive the No. 22 AM Racing Chevrolet in the Vankor 350 at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday, March 29. This will be Wallace’s second NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series start of the 2019 season. He will join Kyle Busch as the two Cup Series regulars to compete in this race.

 

This will also be the second time Bubba Wallace has completed double-duty this NASCAR season. In addition to the Truck Series race, Wallace will also compete in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 on Sunday, March 31.

Wallace drove in both NASCAR races last weekend at Martinsville Speedway. He drove the No. 22 AM Racing Chevrolet in the TruNorth Global 250. In that race, he earned the lucky dog at the conclusion of the second stage. Wallace took advantage of that fortuitous situation and wheeled the No. 22 Chevrolet to a tenth place finish.

The Vankor 350 will be Wallace’s 48th Truck Series start. In his previous starts, he earned six career victories.  Wallace has made four career Truck Series starts at Texas Motor Speedway. He has three Top 10 finishes there and he has led 51 laps. Wallace is no stranger to Texas Motor Speedway.

Wallace is the full-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver of the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Chevrolet. In the Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway, Wallace received the lucky dog at the conclusion of the second stage. As a result, he got back on the lead lap, and Wallace finished the STP 500 on the lead lap in 17th place. After six Cup Series races this season, Wallace is 27th in the championship standings, 65 points below the playoff cut line.

The O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 will be Wallace’s third Cup Series start at Texas Motor Speedway. In the two races there last season, he led two laps and finished inside the Top 10 once.
