Bubba Wallace has had a 2021 full of change.
Over the winter, Wallace moved to a new team co-owned by Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin and while they started out a bit rough and lacked a top 15 finish until race 13, his 23XI Racing Toyota scored a fifth place finish at Pocono and sits 20th in points.
During NASCAR’s current two-week Olympics-inspired break, Wallace decided to make a change in his personal life by proposing to his longtime girlfriend Amanda. After proposing under a waterfall with their dog Asher while on vacation in Oregon, Amanda said ‘Yes.’
