It is no secret how more often than not Wallace has been the center of attention for various reasons. However, over time, pressure has been built on him to make his chances count in the Cup Series. With only two wins in almost 200 races, better results are expected from the Alabama native.

Having said that, Wallace has done a decent job of bouncing back in the ongoing campaign. Despite registering five DNFs to his name, he currently sits in 15th place, possessing a bright chance to make it to the playoffs. While a lot of work is left to be done, his recent Instagram post proves he is on the right track.
