Congrats to Darrell Wallace Jr. A very good day, indeed.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla -- Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. may have finished second in the 2018 Daytona 500, but he certainly won the hearts of NASCAR fans across the country. An emotional Wallace entered the media center after Austin Dillon drove Dale Earnhardt's No. 3 to Victory Lane and was met with a huge embrace from his mother, Desiree, as well as his older sister. Wallace had to take a moment to hold back tears before answering questions from the media.
"Pull it together bud, pull it together," Wallace repeated to himself after the race. "I just try so hard to be successful in everything I do and my family pushes me each and every day. They might not even know it but I just want to make them proud."

3. I enjoyed that race lots of action

Long time Nascar fan I have never cared about much about the Dillon kids but was cool he mentioned a thanks to Darrell Wallace for pushing him to the win.

And its nice to know I am not alone in DU although I did manage to get kicked out of a thread earlier today!
