Episode 13: Bubba Wallace (featuring bonus guest Chris Long)
On this episode of "The Old Man and the Three", it's a double dose of stars as JJ and Tommy sit down with NASCAR's Bubba Wallace to discuss his life on and off the track, his career ascension, and the unique circumstances he's had to deal with. But before that, as an added bonus, former NFL standout Chris Long joins the show to talk about the NFL, NBA, his charity, his podcast (Green Light), and much more.
