We now know what Bubba Wallace’s No. 43 Columbia PFG (Performance Fishing Gear) car will look like this weekend in the Drydene 311 at Dover International Speedway. Columbia unveiled the new look on their social media channels on Tuesday.

The car is unique to say the least. It features different shades of green and is designed to look like a , well, fish. Wallace announced a new multi-race, multi-season sponsorship and endorsement deal with Columbia last week.
Wallace continues to punch above his weight in the Richard Petty Motorsports No. 43 car in 2020. This past weekend, he was running inside the top-10 on the final lap of the Go Bowling 235 at the Daytona International Speedway, when he was turned around after Joey Logano made contact with Alex Bowman, which sent Bowman into Wallace’s No. 43 machine.
Still, Wallace sits 21st in the championship standings, which would be a career-best if he can keep his pace up, and he has also set a new career-high for top-10s in a season with four, so far.
