Wallace To Run Two Truck Races For TRICON

MOORESVILLE, N.C. — NASCAR Cup Series veteran Bubba Wallace will return to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series for a pair of upcoming races.

Wallace will join TRICON Garage to wheel the No. 1 Toyota Tundra on May 13 at Darlington Raceway and the following Saturday at North Wilkesboro Speedway.

In 49 career truck starts, Wallace, who drives for 23XI Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series, has captured six victories, 15 top fives and 28 top 10s. It will be his first series start at the uniquely shaped 1.366-mile oval during NASCAR’s Official Throwback Weekend.

For Darlington, the Alabama native will carry the colors of Stone Country Records recording artist Annie Bosko. Bosko, a Californian and noted country-pop artist is preparing for her debut album, Caged Bird — set to be released in 2023. The record will feature country icons Vince Gill, Raul Malo of The Mavericks and Dwight Yoakam.

At North Wilkesboro, Wallace will partner with Phoenix-based Pristine Auction. Specializing in autographed memorabilia, sports cards, coins, art and collectibles, Pristine has become one of the largest and most trusted auction houses in the world.

“We’re thrilled to have Bubba in one of our trucks at Darlington and North Wilkesboro. Having a Cup Series driver with his level of experience join us will only help elevate our program,” said partner Johnny Gray. “We fully believe we will have multiple entries in contention for the win at both races and the No. 1 will be no exception.”

Wallace will join Jason White, Kaz Grala, Layne Riggs, William Sawalich, Toni Breidinger and Jesse Love as pilots of the No. 1 Tundra this season.
