But what’s not being seen is the pressure those things are building up in the 23XI Racing driver’s mind.

“One of the things that’s clearly holding Bubba (Wallace) back is the pit crew. That’s not fabricated. That’s not made up. It’s real. It has to get fixed, ” he said. “Part of his frustration, I’m sure is, recognizing how are they gonna fix it?”

“There’s a lot of things going on there. There’s pressure there, ” Burton continued.

“He has a tremendous amount of pressure on him. He is a fierce competitor, a skilled racecar driver, and he wants to be winning races on a consistent basis. ”
