A 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 race car driven by Richard Petty Motorsports driver Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr., in the February 18, 2018, Daytona 500. Wallace made history with this Click n’ Close Camaro ZL1 when he crossed the finish line in second place, becoming the highest finishing African-American in the “Great American Race.” The Camaro ZL1 features the chassis, body, and interior of the race car exactly as they were when the car was rolled off the Daytona track. In preparation for the Daytona 500, extra care and detail were given to the car’s body, including wind tunnel testing. Born in Mobile, Alabama, Wallace grew up in Concord, North Carolina. At the age of nine he started driving in both the Bandolero and Legends series, winning 35 Bandolero races in 2005. In 2013, Wallace made more history when he won the Kroger 200 at Martinsville Speedway and became the first African-American driver to win a NASCAR national series race since Wendell Scott in 1963. In October, 2017, Richard Petty announced that Wallace would drive the No. 43 car in 2018. Wallace signed the hood of the car in black marker.
“This car is always going to be special to me. It was my first Daytona 500 and there was so much hype going into the race.
We had done so much media about me racing this car and being the first full-time African-American driver in NASCAR since Wendell Scott. I had my family at the race and friends. This car was the best place for me to be. I was able to just focus inside the car. We probably should have got into two accidents, but we avoided them. We made it to the finish and finished second. It was an amazing day with this car.”
