23XI Racing driver Bubba Wallace is already looking ahead feeling confident for the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season.
Wallace and 23XI Racing made massive improvements in becoming more consistent contenders in the Cup Series with One victory, four top-5 finishes, and five top-10 finishes to cap off a impressive season by his standards.
Bubba signed a multiyear contract extension with 23XI Racing in August. He drove to the second Cup Series victory of his career just a month later at Kansas Speedway and ended the season a career-best 19th in the final Cup standings.
Team owners Denny Hamlin and Michael Jordan showed great belief in the driver when they first signed him on board as the only driver of the team.
Denny Hamlin said, “When we announced Bubba as our first driver the goal was to help him take his career to a higher level, and we have done just that… Bubba is continuing to get more competitive each week. We’re excited to see his growth as he and the team work toward achieving our goals.”
Leading up to the new Cup Series season Bubba, is reasonably confident about 2023 while Speaking with RACER Magazine.
Bubba said “As much as I’m ready for the off-season, I’m ready for next season to start.” What’s notable is that this sentiment wasn’t always there; only a string of good performances in the second half of the season built it.
he added “Just having conversations [recently] about how we are so much better as a team and as a manufacturer from Phoenix [race] one to Phoenix [race] two, it just makes you think about how much better you’ll be starting the year off.”
“It took us all year to figure out this car; we’re still figuring it out day by day. Having the right people in our camp and back at the shop figuring all that out to get us ready and prepped for next year is super exciting,” Wallace revealed.
