During his recent career Bubba Wallace has found himself in the spotlight getting into Twitter battles with former President Donald Trump and most recently enacting a dangerous crash with a fellow driver and then assaulting him following the accident.

“The incident occurred during a race in Las Vegas where Wallace intentionally clipped the reigning champion Kyle Larson’s car, causing both drivers to spin out. Following the wreck Wallace, who was noticeably irate, exited his vehicle and approached Larson then started shoving him. Larson refrained from retaliation and later said that he understood why Wallace was so upset, as Larson made a very aggressive maneuver on Wallace earlier in the race,” Raging Americans reported.

Yahoo Sports reported on NASCAR’s move to suspend the reckless driver saying, “Wallace is the first NASCAR driver suspended for a race since Matt Kenseth in 2015, who got two races for intentionally crashing Joey Logano at Martinsville in retaliation for an incident weeks earlier. In its penalty report announcing Wallace’s punishment, NASCAR cited the rule that gives it discretion to penalize drivers who ‘intentionally wreck or spin another vehicle, whether or not that vehicle is removed from competition as a result.’”

Wallace returned from his suspension to race at the Martinsville Speedway in Virginia for the Xfinity 500 and received an immense amount of boos and dissent from the crowd.

Jeff Gluck tweeted a video of racer intros and said, “Most boos in driver intros: Bubba Wallace, and it wasn’t very close (way more than Kyle Busch and Ty Gibbs).”

Prior to the race Wallace issued a statement.

“There’s a lot of good things going into this weekend. I’m not coming back with a vengeance or anything like that. I’m just going to continue to do what we’ve been doing. And for the record, I have talked to Larson, and we had a great conversation this week.

“I think the best thing for us is we both understood where our frustrations were and moving forward and how we both can handle those situations better. They were understanding of the heat-of-the-moment type things, but they were very adamant about how we need to handle those five seconds later.

“You need to think, like I said earlier, you need to think before you do.”
