Darrell “Bubba” Wallace no longer faces an uncertain future. The 21-year-old was introduced Thursday as the driver for the No. 6 Ford Mustang fielded by Roush-Fenway Racing in the NASCAR XFINITY Series for 2015. The announcement comes only weeks after Wallace asked for and received his release from Joe Gibbs Racing after that team failed to secure sponsorship for Wallace for the 2015 NASCAR XFINITY season.

A graduate of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity program, Wallace made history in 2013 becoming the first African-American driver to win a National NASCAR Touring series race since 1963. Since that first win, Wallace has posted four wins in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, including four trips to victory lane in 2014 driving the No. 54 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota. His final win of the season came at the season finale at Homestead in November.

“I’ve had a remarkable journey over the last few years thanks to people who have put me in a position to win the races that I have,” said Wallace MORE>>>
