The six-episode Bubba Wallace series will premiere on Netflix on Feb. 22, two days after the Daytona 500, according to a trailer provided by Netflix.
The documentary series was unveiled by Netflix in April of last year. Wallace’s debut season with 23XI Racing, which featured a win at Talladega Superspeedway, is chronicled in this series. He is the only Black driver in NASCAR history to win a Cup race, joining Wendell Scott.
The series will consist of 45-minute episodes.
In a statement from Netflix, Wallace said: “This is unlike any project I’ve ever participated in; it’s a raw, emotional and completely transparent account of the events that took place throughout the 2020 and 2021 NASCAR seasons. With me, what you see is what you get. You’ll witness the peaks and valleys of the sport and see how one’s actions off of the race track are just as important as the ones on it.
“One of the most compelling pieces of the series is the additional insight the viewers will gain by hearing from my peers, family and some of my partners that played a role in this monumental journey. Join me as we break down barriers, confront controversy, and welcome a new fan base to the sport of NASCAR.”
Wallace participated in Phoenix Raceway’s Next Gen test earlier this week. It was his first time driving since undergoing shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum during the winter. Before the test, he informed NBC Sports that he was “100%” ready to return to the car.
