Sunday was an encouraging day for Bubba Wallace.

The 23XI Racing driver finished in fifth place on Sunday afternoon, an encouraging mark for the driver.

Wallace, who's had a frustrating season with some pit crew issues, is optimistic moving forward.

"I gotta figure out where to gain speed but I've got a great team behind me. It was a good day today. I'm a little frustrated they put the 21 in front of us after that caution, but we'll take a top five on a road course."

Wallace fans are encouraged, too.

Congrats, Bubba.
