Last week race at Kansas Speedway was a great weekend for 23XI Racing. The team got its first Cup Series victory of the season, and its second career win.
It was not Bubba Wallace in Victory Lane, but his veteran teammate Kurt Busch who emerged victorious. Bubba looked very strong and mounted an heroic effort to finish in 10th place.
Bubba was penalized for a uncontrolled tire with 70 laps remaining. His crew lost a tire, which rolled into traffic.
Toyota Racing expressed their “concerns and displeasure” for NASCAR favoritism towards Hendrick Motorsport
I talked to a couple of them we had our victory kurt victory toast what was that wednesday and my pit crew was there and so i pulled them off well i ran into them as we were leaving and i said that’s what i said and we did not have a great day on pit.
Bubba Wallace was critical of his pit crew after Kansas. He did speak to some of his crew members at the shop heading into the All-Star race at Texas.
hell i messed up i messed up california, i messed up in phoenix messed up a lot of races but the opportunity to come back out and compete again gives you another the second chance so you know grow from that learning from that and use it you know i told him i’m not sorry what i said i said it and it’s there and it’s out there and it is what it is i call it how i see it we sucked we sucked that day
Hendrick Motorsport driver Alex Bowman caught the loose tire, sending it into Ross Chastain before it went flying into the air. Thankfully, no crew members were hit by the errant tire.
Wallace lost his track position, placing him at the tail end of the field. That was one of two pit road penalties by his 23XI Racing pit crew during the race.
At the end of the day. YOU control your own destiny. You have a choice when adversity meets you. Flop… or Fight…
Gave it my all. I can sleep good knowing that.
Hungrier than ever

If Bubba 23XI pit crew can somewhat fix things up, there’s no limit for this 23XI Racing team in the NASCAR Cup Series.
