Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. will return to the NASCAR XFINITY Series to race the No. 98 Ford at Chicagoland Speedway.

Wallace announced today at Richard Petty Motorsports that he will drive a Nickelodeon Green Slime-themed car for Biagi DenBeste Racing and RPM in the 300-mile race on Sept. 16. The car features many Nickelodeon characters hidden in the slime design.

“I’m really glad to get back behind the wheel of a race car,” Wallace said. “Chicago has always been a decent track for me where I’ve had some good finishes. I’m excited to get back in the XFINITY Series in a Ford Mustang. With the history with Biagi DenBeste Racing and RPM, we should have some good speed."

The Chicago race will mark Wallace's first XFINITY race since Pocono Raceway in June after his Roush Fenway Racing team ceased operations due to lack of funding. He did make a triumphant return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series last month at Michigan International Speedway in his first series start since 2014.

Wallace has been involved with Nickelodeon for some time now promoting the brand, which started with NickSports' documentary series "Hammer Down." He drove a SpongeBob SquarePants car at Talladega in 2015 to go along with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles "Shredder" car last year at Chicagoland.

"It’s really cool to be pair with Nickelodeon," Wallace said. "We’ve formed a great relationship over the past three years, and we’re able to do these one off races to attract the youth to the sport."
