Bubba Wallace takes lessons from emotional Phoenix for '17 season
If Darrell Wallace Jr . had one chance to press the rewind button in 2016, he knows exactly where and when he'd go back. "Phoenix really showed in that fall race that we were one of the fastest cars," Wallace recalled last month during the NASCAR Media Tour hosted by Charlotte Motor Speedway , referring to the Nov. 12, 2016 XFINITY Series event that closed out the Round of 8 in the series' playoffs. "The race is probably the highlight one that I want to take back and do over again, but no different mindset." Wallace qualified his No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing Ford fifth for the 200-mile playoff cut-off race. His grandmother had passed a few days prior, so he carried "Granny Jan" above the door. Filled with raw emotion before the race and motivated to win for her, Bubba saw one of the best runs he had all year -- until contact from Blake Koch ’s No. 11 ride sent him into the wall, removing him from the 2016 playoffs.

Bubba Wallace joins fight on World Cancer Day
BUY TICKETS: See the Daytona 500 live! Saturday is designated as World Cancer Day, and the impact of fighting this disease is not lost on young NASCAR star driver Bubba Wallace, who is an Ambassador for the international Movember Foundation. Wallace is among a long list of celebrities and sports stars who have made it a priority to recognize the annual effort to bring attention to fighting this disease. And to making a difference. "The truth is, I'm able to go right now to a mountain bike park with my dad, able to enjoy life on an off-day, just having fun and not having any limits or barriers," said the driver of Roush Fenway Racing 's No. 6 Leidos Ford Mustang in the XFINITY Series. "We're trying to find a cure for all kinds of cancer and it's something I think everyone is on board with. Nobody wants to see time shortened up with such a strong disease. It's just something I always wanted to step up to the plate, support and do what I need to do." Wallace is joining a high-profile list of current and former Movember ambassadors such as Cindy Crawford, Emmy Rossum, Christoph Waltz, Eric Decker and James Wolk. They have all lent their names in an effort to bring attention and hope to patients around the world suffering from cancer. RELATED: Wallace carries emotional Phoenix lessons into 2017 The Movember organization is well known for its work encouraging men to grow mustaches each November as a way to get the general conversation started on ways to raise awareness and funds. In addition to his work with Movember and its emphasis on men's health issues, Wallace was also among a group of NASCAR drivers who helped paint the Charlotte Motor Speedway walls pink last October in recognition of the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. "It's been a lot of fun going to the track and painting the walls for breast cancer," Wallace said. "Knowing close friends that have been involved and affected by it, it's something I keep close to heart for sure. It's a struggle and I don't want to see anybody have to go through that struggle. "I want everybody to have a good life and do what they want to do." Saturday's campaign -- coordinated by the Union for International Cancer Control -- is promoting the Twitter hashtag #WeCanICan and reminding people on a global scale of the work still to be done. The campaign reminds, "Just as cancer affects everyone in different ways, everyone has the power to take action to reduce the impact that cancer has. World Cancer Day is a chance to reflect on what you can do, make a pledge and take action."
Bubba Wallace talks sponsors, chasing first win
Darrell Wallace Jr . didn't spend his XFINITY Series off-weekend lounging on a Caribbean beach or roaming a new city away from the race track. Instead, the No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing driver was behind the wheel. Of a go-kart, that is. "Actually got right into (racing) but not with my (No. 6) guys," Wallace said Wednesday at one of NASCAR's offices in Charlotte, North Carolina. "I went go-kart racing, just try to get back into that and have some fun. Locals whooped me, but still had a lot of fun being able to do that. So, I was still racing, but nothing on the major scale. "(I was) able to learn all the hard (stuff) that went along with go-kart racing. God, it was so tough. I forgot everything that I remember from 13 years ago. Just putting that all together was actually a lot of fun – we had some speed, just the driver forgot how to drive a go-kart," he joked. Lucky for Bubba , this weekend's stage at Daytona International Speedway will be slightly bigger, faster and with a lot more drafting. And while it's not one of Wallace's favorite tracks, it appears he hasn't forgotten how to wheel a superspeedway car: the sophomore driver kicked off the 2016 season with a solid sixth-place result at the Florida track and led multiple laps in the '15 season-opener. Combined with his most recent pair of consecutive top-10 finishes and a runner-up at Dover in May, this weekend's forecast looks more sunny than stormy for the No. 6 driver. "We're just trying to look in-depth at what we're doing for our program and see how we can be better," Wallace said. "We know we're a top-10 race team each and every weekend. We've had some bad luck and some of it's been on us, that we've jeopardized those races and we've ended up outside of that. "But (to have) these last two, now it's starting to get the second half of the season, after that the Chase is starting. So we have to start coming up with a good game plan that we need to bring to each and every track and each and every weekend, so we can unload with a lot of speed and what we need to be competitive. We've been doing that (recently)." They've had additional support off-track as well: Loudmouth Exhaust Systems made its debut on the No. 6 car at Dover International Speedway , where Bubba recorded a career-best second-place result. Since then, the company has graced the car as a primary sponsor for three races and will adorn the No. 6 this weekend at Daytona International Speedway . In a world where sponsorship puts cars on track and lack of it takes names off entry lists, the new partnership has been huge for the 22-year-old racer, who has been transparent about his team's struggles to find primary partners. "Sponsorship is the name of the game," Wallace said. "We're still working hard to find that full-time primary sponsor, but Loudmouth has been a great partner of ours for a number of races now … They've been a huge help to our program to keep us going to the race track each and every weekend. (I'm) trying to do everything I can, as possible, to land that big-time sponsor." Wallace's sponsor schedule has come with some uncertainty -- he said he doesn't even know who is sponsoring his next XFINITY Series race at Kentucky Speedway on July 8. With the goal of landing a full-time sponsor, he's taken a more involved approach than many drivers do, whether it's grabbing lunch with potential partners or meeting with those ready to sign on the dotted line. "I try to be more hands-on, just so I can get a better understanding of what we've got and how I can be better at representing myself for my brand and my team," Wallace said. "I think one thing that's powerful is the drivers gain this personal relationship with the sponsor," he added. “And that's when you see the Lowe's that's with Jimmie Johnson , you see those M&M's with Kyle (Busch) -- they have this great relationship with the driver. There's no middle man and I think that's important." He'll have another chance to impress Loudmouth -- as well as other potential partners that Wallace says are in the works -- this weekend at Daytona International Speedway with Friday's Subway Firecracker 250 Powered by Coca-Cola (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Another top 10 would be great, but a win would be even better for the young driver. "(I'm) excited to have them back on the car at Daytona," Wallace said. "Hopefully we can bring the same amount of luck with them and get a win."
