Bubba Wallace is looking forward to the Ten Days of Thunder at Charlotte Motor Speedway with Richard Petty Motorsports.
That journey starts this Saturday with the initial Monster Energy Open in an eye for the final 80-lap All-Star Race Event.
Race Recap from Kansas
His car went loose where it went sideways but luckily saved himself from making contact with the wall.
That caused a lot of momentum lost as he has a right rear problem with the fenders.
The entry looks excellent after the competition caution pit stop.
But Bubba Wallace reported a flat tire with ten laps to go which went worse as one of the No.43 crew members failed to keep their tires inside their pit stall.
It gave a massive blow to Bubba as he returned to pit road to serve his penalty.
In Stage 2, he remained in P33 throughout this segment with five laps down.
With no penalties or issues happening around the No.43, Bubba took the opportunity to stay out on the track.
He remained down in 29th for most of the final stage until a caution gave Bubba a big boost towards the checkered flag in 23rd.

Bubba isn’t happy with Stage 1 as he struggled to gain spots with the lack of rear grip.
The competition caution gave Bubba a boost with the entry.
But a flat tire and a penalty have left him stuck towards the Top 30 in Stage 2 and most of Stage 3.
Although, several cautions allowed Bubba to freshen himself up and finish in 23rd.
It isn’t the best or perfect performance that Bubba would rate from the Kansas weekend.
So, he and the No.43 crew will look at Charlotte to make sure that the entry through the cornering is correct.
That way it would help Bubba challenge closer to the Top 10-15 mark so they can end the weekend on a positive note.
