The NASCAR season is in full swing and the race for the championship is starting to heat up! To help provide an insider’s perspective on the championship battles, Bing has teamed up with NASCAR driver Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. for this week’s #BingIt chat to talk all things NASCAR. Wallace (@BubbaWallace) will be on hand to discuss his first year driving fulltime in one of NASCAR’s three national series and share some behind-the-scenes stories on being a NASCAR driver.
Whether you’re a NASCAR aficionado or a casual fan, join the #BingIt chat on Thursday, August 8 from 3 p.m.-4 p.m. ET / noon – 1 p.m. PT. To participate in the discussion, follow @bing and @BubbaWallace on Twitter, or use the hashtag #BingIt to join the conversation and tweet along.
The 19-year-old Wallace is an African-American professional stock car driver currently driving the No. 54 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota fulltime in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (@NASCAR_Trucks).
