PODCAST: Bubba Wallace interview


Darrell Wallace Jr. has finally made it into the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, but he hasn’t changed a bit.

“You’ll find me sitting on the couch eating pizza, playing video games, watching movies,” said Wallace. “That’s me. That’s my life.”

On this week’s podcast, Wallace joins Kelly Crandall to talk about life away from the track. True to himself, Wallace shares much of his personal side on social media, which has helped him interact and bond with fans.

An avid heavy metal fan, Wallace taught himself how to play the drums years ago. Now by sharing videos of his jam sessions, fans have something new to talk to him about at the track.

“I’ve got a lot of heavy metal fans out there and [I] show them they can relate to me, listen to the same stuff and I can play a little bit of it on the drums,” said Wallace.

Social media is also where Wallace isn’t afraid to take on the trolls. To hear how he chooses those battles, listen to the episode below.
