Bubba Wallace intends to file an entry into the 56th annual Snowball Derby this December.
The Race Team Alliance, which owns broadcast entity Racing America, and is owned by the NASCAR Cup Series team owners attempted to get Wallace in a car last season as part of a process that ultimately netted Brad Keselowski.
Wallace says no deal is signed yet but speaking to the media during a Saturday press conference at Talladega Superspeedway, the 23XI Racing veteran says this is his intent this offseason.
“Trying to run the Snowball Derby for the first time this year,” Wallace said. “That is not relaxing at all, and a little more work. I’m looking forward to that if it can all work out.”
Wallace spent his formative years behind the wheel of a Late Model Stock and even won a UARA STARS race at Caraway Speedway in 2008 before moving onto the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and then national touring.
He does have Super Late Model experience, and a victory no less, at Bristol Motor Speedway driving for Jamie Yelton’s Fat Head Racing in the U.S. Short Track Nationals in 2017.
