'RACE: Bubba Wallace' Trailer: Netflix Docuseries To Follow History NASCAR Driver's Personal And Professional Journey

Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming docuseries about boundary-breaking NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace. The six-part docuseries will be released on Netflix on Feb. 22 and will focus on the incredible events of Wallace's 2020-2021 season.

The new docuseries will follow Wallace's personal and professional journey, showing what he went through on and off the track as a Black NASCAR driver during a tumorous year.

“This is unlike any project I’ve ever participated in; it’s a raw, emotional and completely transparent account of the events that took place throughout the 2020 and 2021 NASCAR seasons,” said Wallace in a statement received by Shadow and Act. “With me, what you see is what you get. You’ll witness the peaks and valleys of the sport and see how one’s actions off of the race track are just as important as the ones on it. One of the most compelling pieces of the series is the additional insight the viewers will gain by hearing from my peers, family and some of my partners that played a role in this monumental journey. Join me as we break down barriers, confront controversy, and welcome a new fan base to the sport of NASCAR.”

Here's the official description:
