“Proud of @BubbaWallace as always. This season is the best I’ve seen him drive in the 12+ years we’ve been working together. One day it’ll all come together. Congrats to our @23XIRacing teammates,” Freddie Kraft, the spotter of #23 tweeted.

The Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway turned out to be yet another addition to the list of races in which Bubba Wallace suffered a poor result through no fault of his own.

“Listen, I passed #45 pretty early, easily in traffic, but I couldn’t pass the #23. He was really, really fast, I mean extremely fast. The results don’t show it, but like I said, as a team, we’re letting him down right now,” the Joe Gibbs Racing driver said in a post-race interview.

When asked what could be done to fix the situation, Denny Hamlin hinted that the issues will be dealt with “internally”. “We gotta work through some issues on pit road certainly,” he emphasized.
