Bubba Wallace Suspended And Forced to Apologize After Violently Attacking Another Driver

Bubba Wallace Suspended And Forced to Apologize After Violently Attacking Another Driver

I think Bubba Wallace has some emotional problems. Obviously, I am not a doctor, so I am just going by what I have seen. This guy acted like a complete and total hysterical loon over that “noose garage pull.” He was crying and behaving like a complete drama king before he even knew what had happened. And then there’s his on-track behavior. He acts like a madman out there, attacking his fellow drivers and literally losing his marbles. This is truly a man who needs to seek “anger management.” He’s another seething far-left liberal, who cannot communicate his feelings without lashing out and getting violent.

This all started when he literally attacked a NASCAR champion.

ESPN reported that Bubba Wallace tried to fight reigning NASCAR champion Kyle Larson after a crash Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway that also collected title contender Christopher Bell.

Wallace had led 29 laps and clearly had a fast car in the opening race of the third round of the playoffs. Wallace did not qualify for the playoffs, and Larson was eliminated last week.

The incident began when Larson attempted a three-wide pass — Kevin Harvick in the middle dropped out of the bunch — and Larson slid up the track against Wallace. When Wallace didn’t lift to give Larson any room, Larson used his Chevrolet to shove Wallace’s Toyota into the wall.

Wallace then bounced back down the track, followed Larson’s car down to the apron and appeared to deliberately hook him in retaliation. That sent Larson spinning into the path of Bell, who won last Sunday at Charlotte to earn the automatic berth into the round of eight, and ended Bell’s race.

Wallace climbed from his car and marched toward Larson. Wallace was shouting before he even got to Larson and immediately began to shove the smaller driver. Larson tried to turn away from him and several times lifted his arms to block Wallace’s shoves, but Wallace got in multiple shots before a NASCAR safety worker separated the two.

Wallace said he didn’t deliberately wreck Larson, but both Larson and Bell viewed it as clear retaliation. NASCAR could penalize Wallace if it also believes he deliberately retaliated. NASCAR said it will review the incident, which included what appeared to be Wallace pushing an official, and any penalties would be issued next week.

“I’m smart enough to know how easily these cars break, so when you get shoved into the fence deliberately like he did trying to force me to lift, the steering was gone,” Wallace said. “Larson wanted to make a three-wide divebomb, but he never cleared me and I don’t lift.

“I know I’m kind of new to running up front, but I don’t lift. I wasn’t even at a spot to lift and he never lifted, either, and now we’re junk. Just [very bad] move of his execution.”

Asked what message he was trying to send to Larson when he began shoving him, Wallace said, “He knows.”

Well, now this violent lunatic has been suspended for (only) one race and forced to apologize.

Motorsport.com reported that on Tuesday, NASCAR suspended Wallace from this weekend’s race at Homestead-Miami Speedway for intentionally wrecking the car of Kyle Larson during last Sunday’s race at Las Vegas.

No fine or points penalties were assessed.

Wallace, who drives the No. 45 Toyota for 23XI Racing, is the first driver to be suspended for actions in a race since 2019, when Johnny Sauter was suspended one race for intentionally wrecking Austin Hill in a Truck event at Iowa Speedway. He is the first Cup driver suspended for an on-track incident since Matt Kenseth in 2015 when he intentionally wrecked Joey Logano at Martinsville Speedway.

Here’s the so-called “apology” Bubba posted on Twitter:

Gee, this guy is always “reflecting” and “thinking” about stuff, but he doesn’t really do much in the way of changing his actions, does he?

The consensus online is that Bubba got off way too easy, and his behavior, which has gone on long enough, should have resulted in a lifetime ban.

“You were suspended for one race which is nothing you should be banned for your disgusting behavior”

Remember when he threw water in a driver’s face? Bubba’s a really “nice guy,” a super great “sportsman.”

🙄

 

Again, I think there’s something really wrong with this guy. He’s got a lot of rage swirling around inside of him, and I don’t think a one-game suspension will do anything to curb it.
