Bubba Wallace made a real noise in the NASCAR world. After he wrecked Kyle Larson, criticism immediately followed. Many believe that Wallace should be suspended, and regarding that, his former boss had something to say: “He should have been suspended for the rest of the year.
Rest of the year…He drives for Denny Hamlin, who has been vocal about safety. His teammate (Kurt Busch), the only reason he’s in the 45 car is his teammate’s career was all but ended because of an accident in this car that the drivers have vocalized that it needs to be safer.
He turns a guy in the right rear into the outside wall intentionally. Steering brake? That’s laughable,” Kyle Petty said.
Kyle Petty: That should be another suspension
Petty explained why Wallace should be suspended.
Really, his mistake was too big, and he should not have done what he already did. The question is what will arise from this. “Turns a guy into the outside wall, then walks across the race track. First, you intentionally wreck somebody.
That’s a suspension. He’s walking across the race track and cars are going by him on both sides. That’s not safe. That should be another suspension,”. Kyle Petty is disappointed with the behavior of Wallace, who will pay for his mistakes.
NASCAR will think carefully about its moves. Hopefully, Bubba will learn a lesson from this. “Physically confronts a driver, shoves him. That’s a physical confrontation. If I do that on the sidewalk, I’m in handcuffs somewhere.
So, he physically confronts this driver, shoves an official, doesn’t get in an ambulance, walks back to the pits, and then … tells a fib. … The lesson should be the rest of the year, just the rest of the year. That’s just me,” Kyle Petty added.
