Bubba Wallace said about in 75% of the last 11 races this year so far, they were the car that was positioned between 10th to 12th in the race but they didn’t get an opportunity to gain from that using Wallace’s one of the main strengths which are restarts. He went on to say that he believes personally 2022 has been one of his best years in the Cup mentally saying together and said he has changed his giving up mentality in times of hiccups to fighting till the end mentality the season which wasn’t the case years before.

We’ve had 11 races this year and I would say close to 75% of those races, in debriefs, I’m talking about how we were a 10th to 12th place car. If we get a late restart where we’re running 10th, we’re probably going to pick off some spots. Restarts are one of my strengths so we just never have given ourselves a chance at the end of the race, and that’s important for us,Bubba Wallace said.

I feel like, personally, I’ve had one of my best years in the car in the Cup Series this year, just mentally staying together. We have those moments where it’s a loose wheel or I mess up on the track or pit road and it’s like, OK, you can either fold or continue to push on and last year or years prior it would be, ‘We’re done. We’ll finish wherever we finish. I’ll still scrap for whatever spot we were in,’ says Bubba Wallace.

He went on to say the frustrating part of the season so far has been for him is the fact that he isn’t able to secure results for the efforts he is putting in as he is yet to take every piece of the puzzle together.

That’s the frustrating part because I feel like I’ve made a step up and put in that effort and the results aren’t there, so it takes every piece of the puzzle to make things right,” Bubba Wallace added.
