The majority of the answers were reflected, either Kyle Bush or Bubba Wallace. Bush has had an unpleasant season so far. Although he initially made it to qualifying, he was later eliminated at Bristol after suffering an engine failure. Throughout the season, there have also been significant doubts lingering about the future of driver Joe Gibbs Racing, with many even questioning whether he will be able to continue with NASCAR entirely. However, all of that was answered after, Richard Childress Racing announced that Busch would be driving with them from 2023 onwards.

On the other hand, Bubba Wallace failed to reach the playoffs. He also struggled early in the season, mostly due to his longstanding issues with the pit crew. But fortunately, towards the end of the season, the 23XI racing driver was able to find Mojo and go on to score his second win in Kansas, while vying for the qualifier with Kyle Busch’s #45.

NASCAR fans say Bubba Wallace or Kyle Bush will likely see massive performance boosts next year

Both drivers are on new contracts and will start their next season with their teams. Wallace signed a contract extension with 23XI, which would certainly have done its part in motivating Wallace to do better. Meanwhile, Joe Gibbs Racing’s Kyle Busch has jumped to Richard Childress Racing after spending 15 years with JGR.
