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

If you never understood NASCAR’s overtime line rule, it doesn’t matter now

  If you never understood NASCAR’s overtime line rule, it doesn’t matter now It's a little less confusing now.Didn't know you could have overtime on a race track? 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.

NASCAR drivers are as excited as Bubba Wallace about his first 2017 win . UVA alum Chris Long upset to see 'man babies with tiki torches' rallying in Charlottesville.

NASCAR drivers are as excited as Bubba Wallace about his first 2017 win . Kyle Busch finished third after winning the first two stages. Wallace hadn't driven in a Truck race since 2014, when he won four times.

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.
