Bubba Wallace had the most successful season of his career, finishing a career-best 10th in the points standings. Although Wallace has the right to be happy and expect even greater things from himself, this great NASCAR driver still carries a great deal of disappointment. The reason is clear: Wallace is angry because he didn't get a single win this season. Speaking to NASCAR.com, Wallace emphasized that many are congratulating him on his success this season, but he still carries frustrations inside.

“Everybody I see in the industry the last couple days have come up to me and continued to remind me how good the season was, and it is when you peel back the layers and look at it. We checked a lot of boxes, but I don’t know if it’s just me being young and hungry, but I got zero wins. So that bugs the hell out of me.

But yeah, I mean, we made a good run, proud of the efforts from the team. It was a really, really good year. I’m so excited to … not get it started yet because I’m enjoying the downtime, but I’m excited for the next one to start.”- Bubba Wallace said, as quoted by NASCAR!

21XI Racing ideas

23XI Racing is aiming high for the next season. Tyler Reddick and Bubba Wallace want to prove themselves and do big things. The team is building a new headquarters and changing their car style to the Next Gen Camry XSE for 2024. Wallace thinks he and Reddick can achieve a lot together. He's excited about the changes coming to 23XI Racing. Looking at his performances from season to season, we can't help but be optimistic that Wallace can achieve at least one victory, or many more, next season. Time will tell, but Wallace's appetite grows year by year.


I think moving forward, with Tyler having a year with us and figuring it all out, I think it’s only going to expedite the process on where we want to be. I think, there’s a lot of races where we were the top performing two as a team, and I think we want to do that more. And so, we’ve got all the right people in the right spot. The new shop’s going to pump some new life into our guys and into ourselves, and we’re gonna go out and work our asses off this year.”
