Bubba Wallace Parents: Bubba Wallace Parents, Bubba said, “This is a sensitive topic,” according to Yahoo Sports. “But I am just that sad where my family has been since two years, and I’m not talking about it, but it was just that difficult, and getting them to help me is… I’m… My family motivates me every day; perhaps not to realize it, but I just want to make them proud. I try so hard to achieve all I do. I love my family and I am thankful to everyone here, my mother, sister and uncle included. Everyone in this Chamber means a lot.”
Bubba’s father, Darrell Sr., is white, and his mother, Desiree, is black. Bubba’s parents split when he was young, but he still keeps in touch with both of them. He was the first African-American driver to take NASCAR full-time riding since 1971, making history in 2018.
Desiree thinks her son is the right person to contribute to sports development. “Bub has a strong basis,” Desiree told Blavity.com. “He will work hard, remain focused, and prove himself further. This will hopefully inspire other minorities interested in NASCAR.”
