Bubba Wallace Trailer Hits the Track with the NASCAR Driver on Netflix

Netflix has just released a trailer for Race: Bubba Wallace. A six-episode docuseries coming to the streaming service in February, Race puts viewers right there into the driver’s seat for the past couple of years of Bubba’s life with exclusive access to the driver during the 2021 NASCAR season. You can watch the new trailer for the docuseries below.

“This is unlike any project I’ve ever participated in; it’s a raw, emotional and completely transparent account of the events that took place throughout the 2020 and 2021 NASCAR seasons,” Wallace said of the series. “With me, what you see is what you get. You’ll witness the peaks and valleys of the sport and see how one’s actions off of the racetrack are just as important as the ones on it.”


He added, “One of the most compelling pieces of the series is the additional insight the viewers will gain by hearing from my peers, family and some of my partners that played a role in this monumental journey. Join me as we break down barriers, confront controversy, and welcome a new fan base to the sport of NASCAR.”

Race: Bubba Wallace is executive produced and directed by Erik Parker with fellow executive producers Kevin Liles, Nolan Baynes, and Kelly G. Griffin for 300 Studios; Andrew Fried, Dane Lillegard, Jordan Wynn, and Sarina Roma for Boardwalk Pictures; and Matt Summers, Tim Clark, and Tally Hair for NASCAR. Erik Parker (L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later, Nas: Time Is Illmatic) directs.

Learn Bubba Wallace’s Full Story With This Docuseries


The logline for Race: Bubba Wallace reads: “Both the personal and professional tracks of race car driver Bubba Wallace’s life are chronicled in this new docuseries. With exclusive access to Wallace during the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season, his first with Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin’s 23XI Racing, the series traces his rise to the elite ranks of NASCAR as the only full-time Black driver and the turbulent aftermath that followed his decision to speak out about racial injustice.

Over the course of six episodes, Wallace reckons with who he is on and off the track, finding himself as both a driver and an activist. He confronts his mental health issues and permanently alters the notoriously white and conservative sport of racing by inspiring the ban on the Confederate flag. While dealing with the stress of competition and the public fallout both at the track and on social media from his stand, Wallace is supported in his efforts by his family and members of the racing community.”

The series also includes appearances by Bubba’s fiancé and family members, his team behind-the-scenes, 23XI Racing co-owner and top NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin, fellow drivers Kyle Busch and Richard Petty, NASCAR executives, and commentators Michael Strahan, Jemele Hill, and W. Kamau Bell, who “help contextualize what it means to be the only Black individual in a white space.”

Race: Bubba Wallace will start streaming on Feb. 22, 2022, only on Netflix.
