Bubba Wallace finished 12th in Sunday's Go Bowling at The Glen 300. Bubba can hardly be particularly pleased, but the result is generally good. After the race, Wallace revealed that he had spoken to Scott Dixon before the race, who gave him some interesting advice.
"Shout out to Scott Dixon. I actually talked to him this morning about the mental piece of it. It’s hard when you climb in for a road course race and tell yourself you are going to crash, and you are going to suck. When you tell yourself that every time, he basically told me, ‘Shut the hell up.
I’m here for a reason and trust in myself, and I’m here for a reason. Believe in myself”. Self-doubt seems to be what Wallace has faced many times. However, the most important thing for him is that during the last race, he did not have a single negative thought.
“I don’t think I had one lap today where I thought I was going to suck, so that’s good”.
Bubba Wallace and his mentality
Bubba Wallace is known for his interesting statements that cause a huge number of reactions.
This great NASCAR driver reacted last season to the huge amount of criticism he always receives. Wallace then emphasized that he does not want to get into the heads of people who do not want to change. It is obvious that he works a lot on the mental aspect of his performances.
“I’ve always said there are three types of people: the ones that will accept change, the ones that are on the fence about change, and the ones that will never change You can never get to the minds of the people that will never change, so we don’t really focus our energy on those people. We try to convince the ones that are on the fence about change"
