Bubba Wallace is under fire for his move. Namely, in one momentum during the race in Las Vegas, Bubba Wallace wrecked Kyle Larson. Reactions and criticism immediately followed the race. One of those who reacted was Joey Logano.
Logano still can't believe how careless Wallace was, and such a mistake could have cost him dearly. “If he spun him to the infield, maybe it’s a little better, but right-rear hooking someone in the dogleg is not OK.
I don’t know if everyone realizes how bad that could have bee. That could have been the end of Kyle Larson’s career. That to me was what was on the line. Or his life. That is the worst spot to get right-rear hooked into a corner,” Joey Logano told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

Logano believes that anger and frustration should not be dealt with in such a way. There are also more mature ways to resolve conflicts. Larson could have had much greater consequences, and even the worst could have happened.
However, Wallace may have been lucky that things were not so dangerous. We hope that such things will not happen.
“[Larson] might have flush-hit that thing in the side and game over. There’s no room for that. You can’t do that.
If it’s under caution and you’re banging doors … I don’t know that that’s OK, but at least you’re not putting someone’s life at risk. I don’t like using cars for a weapon. Just get out and fight him.
That’s fine if that’s what you really want to do and that’s how you want to handle it,” Joey Logano added. NASCAR has always had situations like this. Drivers must be aware of how much they can put others in danger. Preventing these things is primary.
