Bubba Wallace Jr. starred in an emotional behind the scenes video before his first Cup Series race

When any young driver makes their Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut it’s a big deal.  When you are doing it in the famous #43 the stakes are even higher. That was exactly the case for 23 year old Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr.

In the video posted by NASCAR, we go “Behind the Wall” to get a look at the human side of racing as a film crew follows Bubba around in the moments leading up to the big race at Pocono Raceway. Emotions are flying high, the pressure is on and all the while his family and crew is there to back him up. The camaraderie and family feeling you see between Darrell and his crew is amazing and his mom is right there on the track to give him a reassuring hug.  This young driver has a lot going for him and with this support staff the skies the limit, even if he did pass out after this race.  Maybe McDonalds wasn’t the best idea in the world before the race.
