The fact that Bubba Wallace finished 7th does not seem to make him happy. During the race he made a number of mistakes which caused him a great deal of frustration. Following the contact he had with Logano on the racetrack, Joey went into a spin.

It is Wallace's hope that future races will be as free of situations as possible. Wallace is determined to keep pushing and improve his performance, and he is sure that with hard work he will be able to reach his goals. Bubba is grateful for the support he has been receiving from his team and fans.

This great NASCAR driver hopes to continue to make them proud in the future. “Let the team down,” Wallace said, as quoted by on3.com! I just made silly mistakes, dumb mistakes to the 22 and 16 and they made it hell, rightfully so.

Apologies to them. Just did not execute as a driver today and felt really good going into the race. But got some regrouping to do and some things to figure out. Going to Kansas gotta regroup and move forward”.

Bubba Wallace is happiest when he doesn't have any problems.

It is most important to him that the drivers pass without being injured. Bubba wants the drivers to have the best races possible and to be the best drivers that they can be. Wallace also wants to make sure that the sport remains as safe as possible for all involved.

“Yeah no doubt, I think you gotta stick with it. These races are long. I thought about what happened with the 19 [Martin Truex Jr.] in the spring [race], right? Him and Ross [Chastain] got together, he spun, and then before his crash into Turn 1, he was back up front.

So it’s like, we don’t have any damage we’re good, just put some new tires on it and we’ll come back up through the field and we did that. So, it was good”.
