Bubba Wallace Announces Clothing Line (Photos)
NASCAR driver becomes first athlete with signature Columbia collection
Bubba Wallace is the #23 car driver for 23XI Racing. The team is owned by Michael Jordan and fellow driver Denny Hamlin. He races full-time with the NASCAR Cup Series and earned his first career victory last season at Talladega Superspeedway.
The 28-year-old is also a Columbia brand ambassador. Together they created a new line of clothing. This is the first signature brand for Columbia from a professional athlete.
While many garments feature similar colors to his 23XI Racing machine, the line showcases Wallace’s style away from the track. The driver is an outdoor enthusiast who spends his free time as a photographer.
“For me, being a pioneer while breaking down barriers and making our sport more inclusive has always been a goal,” said Bubba Wallace.
“The Bubba Wallace collection, in collaboration with Columbia Sportswear, achieves these same goals from a sartorial perspective. The line is different; it’s bold, it stands out, while ensuring you’re comfortable in your elements. When you are comfortable, whether in your skin or in your clothes, nothing is out of reach.
Wallace added, “I am grateful to Columbia Sportswear and the opportunity to collaborate with them on this line, and I look forward to growing with them on and off the track.”
The new collection is announced just before the 2022 NASCAR season opens. The first race of the year is this weekend at the LA Coliseum.
The items below are available in limited quantities through Columbia.com. They are also available at select Columbia outlets beginning February 2, 2022.
