The wife of Bubba Wallace is his sweetheart from high school, Amanda Carter. They got married on December 31, 2022.
During the 2023 Daytona 500, most Toyota drivers were dominating and leading the race. Unfortunately, this changed when Bubba Wallace was hit from behind and brushed the wall.
This incident caused his car to lose momentum, and he significantly dropped in the rankings. At that time, he was leading the race, and the Toyotas were engaged in a fierce battle with several Ford cars.
Although Bubba Wallace may not claim the 2023 title, it would be unwise to underestimate him.
The NASCAR celebrity and his spouse Amanda Carter first encountered each other as high school students: ‘I vividly recall seeing her, and I thought, ‘Wow, she’s stunning,’ says Wallace.
Despite knowing each other since high school, it wasn’t love at first sight for Amanda.‘She thought I was kind, but not appealing,’ Wallace, 29, informed People.
When they initially met, Wallace was a sophomore while Amanda was a freshman at the same school.
When asked about their high school days, Amanda mentioned that she couldn’t recall how they met, but they were friends. Wallace consistently sought her assistance during exams as she claimed she was brighter than him.
They grew closer, but their relationship didn’t turn romantic until later. She mentioned that it never worked and never blossomed in high school, and she even attended his prom with someone else from their school.
After graduating from high school, they occasionally communicated once or twice a year until 2015, when they reunited at a football game.
From there, they began spending more time together, and Wallace invited her to accompany him to Las Vegas for one of his races when she was a senior in college.
Despite Amanda declining to join him on this outing, Wallace didn’t give up easily.
He asked Amanda again several times, and eventually, she agreed. They began dating on the trip to Vegas.
As per Amanda, they started dating due to their extensive conversations during that trip. They began to develop feelings for each other.
