If Bubba Wallace is this brave and badass, you know Bubba Wallace’s girlfriend is liable to be the same.
Bubba Wallace’s girlfriend Amanda Carter supports his social position
When Bubba Wallace took on the institution of the old South, he took a brave stance. Of course, many see the confederate flag as a symbol of hate during a dark period in our history. However, there’s still a portion of the South that views the confederate flag as a badge of honor for their heritage. NASCAR fandom leans heavily south of the Mason Dixon border. Yet, Bubba Wallace was ready to speak out in a controversial fashion to challenge NASCAR to remove the flag from their events.
In the wake of the George Floyd murder, the nationwide protests, and the new commitment to the Black Lives Matter movement, Bubba Wallace spoke out. And Bubba Wallace won.

Bubba Wallace’s girlfriend is definitely proud of the efforts her boyfriend made. Taking to social media, Amanda made it clear that she supports all of Bubba’s efforts and statements. Bubba rolled out to the NASCAR Cup Series Blue Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 in a custom paint job. Continuing his activism efforts, a car decked out in Black Lives Matter took to the track at Martinsville Speedway. The efforts continue on and off the track.
Bubba Wallace’s girlfriend is BACK!
Yes folks, that’s right. Amanda Carter is back on pit road to celebrate the successful cup series finishes. That wasn’t so much the case for things before late 2019 as the couple had taken a break. Details of the breakup aren’t exactly known, but it was referred to as a “bad breakup,” which contributed to a battle with depression during the 2018 season. The Undefeated explains more
The first two seasons were a whirlwind of emotions for Wallace, who had experienced exhilarating highs and devastating lows while balancing the pressures of driving the famed No. 43 car for Richard Petty Motorsports. Outside of that, Wallace had his own battles within. Feelings of defeat came in waves. Although there were positive moments and good races to boost morale in two seasons, there were no wins.
“There were multiple times in the 2018 season where, you know, I was down and I was trying to do everything that I can and it still wasn’t enough,” Wallace said.
Adding to an already-stressful situation, Wallace was dealing with family struggles and a bad breakup with his girlfriend, Amanda Carter (they have since rekindled their relationship). With emotions spiraling, Wallace, who still often managed to turn on his charm for the crowd, made his silent battle with depression public during a media session at Kansas Speedway in May.
With Bubba Wallace’s girlfriend back in the fold and a commitment to a socially just movement, Bubba Wallace is entering the American lexicon. And it’s all well deserved.
