Ryan Blaney and Bubba Wallace are one of the best examples of NASCAR drivers being really good friends. The two started their racing journeys from a very young age, competing together and climbing the ladder.

And now, they find themselves fighting for a spot in the playoffs in the final race of the regular season.

But before the green flag is waved at Daytona, and even after that, they are good friends.

Perhaps this is what Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg thought as they decided to film a promo for their new movie, ‘Me Time’ with Wallace and Blaney.

In an Instagram reel posted by the 23XI Racing driver, Hart introduces the two by saying, “NASCAR’s best buds, Bubs and Ryan, what’s up with you two?”

“Look, we wanted to wish you both good luck in the big race today,” he continued. “You guys’ friendship has really reminded us of our new movie, ‘Me Time.'”

What follows next is the two NASCAR drivers getting a sneak peek of the movie and reacting to some of the hilarious moments from it, leading Blaney to clarify, “Well, we do love the matching tracksuits and we do camp together a lot, but I think we’ll stick to our firesuits.”

Upon hearing this, Wahlberg then directed their attention towards a clip of a car crash, which Wallace didn’t seem to like at all. “Not the minivan! That’s messed up, you don’t mess with another man’s ride,” he reacted.

“I’m out!”

Bubba Wallace and Ryan Blaney will be hoping to not have the same fate as ‘Me Time’

‘Me Time’, contrary to what Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg would’ve had in their minds, is heading for a tag of a spectacular failure and flop. According to most of the critics in Hollywood, the $50 million movie is being painted as Hart’s ‘worst movie yet.’

Now, the fate of this movie is what it is, but Bubba Wallace and Ryan Blaney would be hoping to have different fortunes come the end of the checkered flag at Daytona.

Ideally, though, both could still make it to the next stage of the season, but that’s gonna be tough, yet not impossible.
