No worries, just know that it's because NASCAR likes to have races end with drivers going at full speed, and late caution flags or the race stopping gets in the way of this.

Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. has had an unpredictable NASCAR season.

Which NASCAR drivers have cameos in new ‘Logan Lucky’ movie?

  Which NASCAR drivers have cameos in new ‘Logan Lucky’ movie? Cops, a chauffeur and the perfect delivery boy.

– Diversity among NASCAR drivers is lacking, and Darrell “ Bubba ” Wallace Jr. is well “I’d rather be ‘ driver ,’ for sure,” Wallace told For The Win on Wednesday at Daytona International Speedway. Alex Ovechkin was so excited about beating the Penguins he dropped an F-bomb on live TV.

Cain: Bubba Wallace earns his spotlight and will keep dazzling us. Standing just outside his truck was a smiling Wallace, excited about some opportunities he had just earned. NASCAR most wins in a season in playoff era. Drivers to win four times in first 11 races.

RELATED:'Bubba' wins

The 23-year-old started the 2017 year in an XFINITY Series car, competing in 12 races where his best finish was sixth place, which he oddly did six times in the No. 6 car. But as his Roush Fenway Racing team had to suspend operations in June, he was tapped to jump in the No. 43 Cup Series car and replace Aric Almirola, who was injured in a terrifying crash in May. He is the first African-American diver in the Cup Series since 2006 and only fourth driver overall.

When Almirola returned to the track, Wallace was without a ride until Saturday at Michigan International Speedway when he returned to the Camping World Truck Series and won his first race since 2014 in the LTI Printing 200.

Wallace's celebration was spectacular, and he was delightfully gracious even with sponsored beverages running into his eyes, telling FOX Sports after:

"It's burning my eyes right now, it's so good. … God, it's been so long since I've been in Victory Lane. I try to hold a positive mindset over it, and everybody in my family knows that it eats at me every day."

While he was overcome with emotion, his friends and fellow NASCAR drivers hopped on Twitter to show their excitement for him as well.
