Sponsorship and endorsement deals continue to roll in while 2021 plans remain unknown
In recent months, Bubba Wallace has added a wide range of sponsorship and endorement deals to his portfolio. Beats by Dre headphones, DoorDash, Cash App and Columbia Sportswear all signed in the last 3 months.
The sponsorship deals continue to roll in for Wallace.
New this week, Kingsford Charcoal has joined the NASCAR driver. The announced was made this week via the social media video shown below.
Wallace has become very outspoken on social justice issues. It’s a new side of the 26-year-old driver that we haven’t seen since he made his cup debut in 2017.
He suggested NASCAR take steps to remove the Confederate flag. Within days, NASCAR reacted by doing exactly that.
He took heat from President Donald Trump after the noose incident at Talladega. Wallace took the high road, responding with love.
Wallace in 2021?
Wallace is in the fourth year with Richard Petty Motorsports. It’s a contract year for the driver who could be driving elsewhere in 2021.
RPM has offered the driver a stake in the ownership of the team. That’s something that’s all but unheard of in modern day NASCAR.
Last month, it was rumored that NBA legend and Charlotte, NC resident Michael Jordan was interested in an investment with Richard Petty Motorsports. That rumor was later shut down by his publicist.
Rumors suggest Wallace is considering options such as the No. 42 at Chip Ganassi Racing. Matt Kenseth jumped out of retirement and took over that seat when Kyle Larson was abruptly suspended by NASCAR for a racial slur.
Wallace has run 102 NASCAR Cup Series races in his career. He’s collected 9 top-10’s but he remains winless with a best-finish of 2nd in the 2018 Daytona 500.
