Bubba Wallace will have a bright orange race car for this weekend’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Wallace’s iconic No. 43 Camaro ZL1 will be featuring Coca-Cola Orange Vanilla.
Wallace unveiled the ride on Fox & Friends on Wednesday morning in New York.
Wallace will also drive this race in honor of U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt Dylan Elchin, who was killed in combat. Elchin’s name will be above Wallace’s windshield as a part of NASCAR’s 600 Miles of Remembrance this weekend.
The driver of the No. 43 had an emotional week during the All-Star Race at Charlotte. Despite not being locked into the field, Wallace drove his guts out in the Monster Energy Open and won the Second Stage of that event to secure his spot in the All-Star Race for the first time in his career.
Wallace then went on to finish fifth in the main event of the evening. He will look for his first points-paying top-10 of the season on Sunday.
