Bubba Wallace and Kyle Larson were the main actors in the Las Vegas incident. During the entire race, it was tense between them, and things culminated after Wallace crashed Larson into the grass. After getting out of the car, Wallace aggressively moved toward Larson and wanted to physically deal with him.
Immediately after the race, Bubba Wallace commented on everything that happened. He was visibly upset and furious that this situation had arisen; “When you get shoved in the fence deliberately like he did trying to force me to lift — steering was gone.
He just so happened to be there. He knows what he did was wrong. He wanted to question what I was doing, he never cleared me,”. Larson made a bad move during the race, and Bubba seemed to want revenge. He is aware of his mistake, but they must forget about this as soon as possible.
Things could have been much worse. Still, it went well, and we hope we won't see scenes like this again. “I obviously made an aggressive move into [Turn 3], got in low and loose and chased it up a bit and he got to my right front and it got him tight and into the wall.
Knew he was going to retaliate, so like I said, he had a reason to be mad. But his race wasn’t over until he retaliated,”.
Wallace's former boss reacted
Bubba Wallace's former boss is angry with Bubba and what he did: “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.
