NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace might not be married, but he is in a very committed, loving, and supportive relationship with his fiancée, Amanda Carter. 


Budda Wallace is an impressive NASCAR driver and rose through the ranks for several years before becoming a team driver in October 2017, becoming the first black driver to have a full-time Cup ride. 

His hard work and determination paid off last year when he won a NASCAR Cup Series race at the YellaWood 500 at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega. The occasion marked the first time since 1963 that a black driver won a Cup Series race.

When Wallace is not creating history and racing around the track, he spends time with his longtime girlfriend and now-fiancée, Amanda Carter, who he started dating in 2016, and their adorable dog, Asher. 

Fans have seen glimpses of the couple's loving and supportive relationship through their various social media posts, Facebook's "Behind The Wall: Bubba Wallace" and Netflix's newly released "Race Bubba Wallace."


The Facebook eight-episode docuseries documented Wallace's journey to the Daytona 500. It showed glimpses of Wallace and Carter spending time together, including enjoying one of their favorite pass times boarding games as they are both competitive. 

The series also showed Carter's support of her NASCAR driving fiance's dreams. Carter did not know anything about NASCAR before meeting Wallace, but Carter threw herself into the sport after beginning their relationship. 


The series ends with Carter watching the race with Wallace's mother, Desiree. During which, she noted her "stomach was in [her] throat," but she cheered on and watched Wallace win second place. 

Of course, Wallace's sometimes hectic racing schedule can mean he spends a lot of time away from home. In March 2021, he admitted to People magazine that he would miss the time at home as NASCAR season picked up. 


However, it is evident by their social media accounts that the love between them could not be affected by a bit of time part. The longtime couple took their relationship to the next step as Wallace proposed to Carter in July 2021. 

Carter posted a few gorgeous pictures of herself and Wallace dressed in their hiking gear in front of a waterfall at the end of July. She shared she said yes after Wallace pulled off the "greatest surprise."


Wallace regularly shared heartfelt and sweet messages for Carter on Instagram. Recently, he wished his soon-to-be wife a happy Valentine's Day and gushed that life gets better with her in it. 

Last year, for Carter's birthday, Wallace celebrated on the social media platform by posting a collection of beautiful photos of his fiancée. He wrote about his excitement to see where the next year would take them. 

The pair have yet to tie the knot, but Carter has shared a few glimpses into the wedding plan on her account, including that she picked out a wedding dress. Hopefully, they will share a few snaps from their special day online after their wedding.
