Bubba Wallace took his first career pole for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race in Michigan.
He secured the spot with a lap of 190.703 mph in the final run. Wallace was the only driver to go over 190 mph in the qualifying session.
“It was about time,” Wallace said, via NASCAR.com. “It took me five years to get my first pole. That’s a testament to 23XI, everyone in the No.23 team.
“They’ve done a terrific job all year, really. They just haven’t had the finishes we deserve, but proud for everyone who sticks to that. Lots of adversity in this team, and we continue to show that we are ready to fight.”
