With a speed of 154.209 mph, Darrell Wallace Jr. qualified 26th for the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Wallace and his rookie compatriot William Byron have a lot to live up to because last year’s freshmen Daniel Suarez and Erik Jones swept the top 15 at Dover. Byron advanced to the round of 24.

Darrell Wallace Jr. was notably fast in final practice for the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway. His top speed of 119.952 mph was second on the speed chart.

Wallace is jacked up following his strong Bristol Motor Speedway run last week and determined to show he is capable of scoring top-10s in the right car. Mental attitude is an extremely important key to success on short tracks.

Darrell Wallace Jr. will make his first appearance at Richmond Raceway in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He finished 34th at Martinsville and 16th at Bristol in his first two short track runs of the season.

Wallace replaced Aric Almirola in four races during the 2017 season but did not compete at a short track, so his 2018 Martinsville and Bristol performances are the best gauges fantasy owners have going into the weekend. Last week, Wallace preformed aggressively to get the No. 43 car to the front and lead his first laps of the season, Wallace would ultimately fall back to 16th as he lost speed with old tires while teams waited on NASCAR to release the final set during Monday’s race finale. As Wallace becomes more comfortable week to week at the Cup level the driver will make more aggressive moves to get Richard Petty Motorsport back up to the front.

Darrell Wallace Jr. will make his second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series short track appearance this week and his first at Bristol Motor Speedway.

It’s going to be a little difficult to recommend Wallace in the Food City 500 on the heels of his 34th-place finish at Martinsville. He ran into trouble on that short track, but no one has even accused Bristol of being kind to rookies and the same thing could happen again.

Julien's Auctions has announced that Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr.'s historic Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will join the PROPERTY From the Collection of Richard Petty, the highly anticipated motorsports auction event of the season, May 12 live at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and online.

On February 18, Wallace Jr. raced the No. 43 Click n' Close Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to second place in his first Daytona 500. His finish is the highest for an African-American driver in the 60-year history of the Great American Race. Wallace is the first full-time African-American driver on the circuit in 47 years since Wendell Scott. The car is signed by Wallace himself and estimated to sell between $70,000 - $90,000.-Richard Petty Motorsports

Darrell Wallace Jr. finished eighth in the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, which was his second top-10 of his rookie campaign.

Wallace caught a caution at the right time to make him one of 10 drivers who finished on the lead lap. That does not detract from his performance, however, because the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks have been among his best courses so far. He should be considered a solid dark horse the next time NASCAR visits an unrestricted, intermediate speedway.
Apr 8 - 6:41 PM

Darrell Wallace Jr. felt he gave something up in turns one and two of Texas Motor Speedway, but his speed of 194.763 m.p.h. was good enough to land 15th on the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 grid.

Wallace easily outpaced fellow rookie William Byron – who used the first round of qualification as a practice session with a new engine in his car. Wallace has been above average on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks in his brief career and this should be one of his better attempts through seven races of the season.
Apr 6 - 7:06 PM

Since finishing second in the Daytona 500, Darrell Wallace Jr. has struggled to finish close to the top 20 with a best of 21st at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and an average of 27th.

Auto Club Speedway will probably be a difficult place for him to accomplish that feat, however. This two-mile track rewards the "whole package" of driver skill, mechanical setup, and engine. Richard Petty Motorsports does not quite have the same resources at their disposal as Stewart-Haas Racing, Joe Gibbs Racing, or Hendrick Motorsports and those superteams will dominate the front half of the pack.

Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) announced Farmer John as its newest primary partner. Farmer John will be the primary sponsor of Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr and the No. 43 RPM team at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. during the Auto Club 400 race weekend.

Farmer John is the leading supplier of fine meat products throughout the West Coast. This will be Farmer John's NASCAR debut and first partnership with RPM. The Auto Club 400 at the Auto Club Speedway is scheduled for Sunday, March 18.-RPM

Darrell Wallace Jr was notably fast in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway with a speed of 185.319 mph.

Wallace was disappointed with his qualification effort that will force him to roll off the grid 26th. We would like to say that this insures he will earn significant place-differential points, but posting one single fast lap is not the same as putting a complete race together. Wallace should still be approached with a little caution.

Darrell Wallace Jr. ran into the back of Ricky Stenhouse Jr. with 27 laps remaining in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway and did significant damage. He could not see the track that was being smoked out by a blown engine on Trevor Bayne.

Wallace was not having a particularly good day to begin with. He was outside the top 25 at the time in his first Cup race on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track. This makes him a questionable proposition next week at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Feb 25 - 6:49 PM

Darrell Wallace Jr. posted the fastest time among the two rookies on Friday in the first practice session for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Wallace’s top speed of 185.834 mph was the third best of the day behind Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Kyle Larson. Coming off an impressive second-place finish in the Daytona 500, he has a ton of momentum on his side and that is translating into speed on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track.
