On June 5, 2017 Richard Petty Motorsports announced that Bubba Wallace would be strapping into the iconic No. 43 Ford at Pocono Raceway while the car’s full-time driver Aric Almirola recovered from a back injury. The opportunity gave Wallace his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start and also marked the first time since 2006 that an African American driver would race at the sport’s highest level. In qualifying, Wallace powered his No. 43 Smithfield Ford Fusion to an impressive 16th starting spot. On race day, he ended the Pocono 400 in 26th position, making history in the process. Now Lionel Racing is excited to announce a First Start die-cast to commemorate Wallace’s Cup Series debut. Each 1:24 scale is available autographed or unsigned and is detailed with all the scuffs, race debris, and damage seen on

the No. 43 following the race. This replica die-cast is also available to order in 1:64 scale. The Bubba Wallace First Start die-cast ships in special commemorative packaging and comes with a collector card detailing the stats and story of Wallace’s first race.
