Bubba Wallace and the incident in Las Vegas are the main topic on the NASCAR scene right now. Many believe that Wallace made a big mistake and that he should be suspended for a long time. Wallace's former boss Kyle Petty is not satisfied with the behavior of Bubba, who could not control his nerves and reacted violently.
“He should have been suspended for the rest of the year. Rest of the year… 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… That’s a physical confrontation. If I do that on the sidewalk, I’m in handcuffs somewhere,” Kyle Petty said. Bubba Wallace still hasn't said anything specific about this incident.
Now he is certainly aware of his mistake, but he is expected to publicly say everything related to what he did. “I applaud Bubba and I applaud 23XI for putting this out. But in a world, and I’m cynical — so let’s just go ahead and say that — in a world of social media where we post everything, silence sometimes says more than the words that are written and we have heard nothing from Bubba Wallace since this incident happened,” Kyle Petty said.
Denny Hamlin is the only man from the team who reacted and commented on the incident; “I didn’t see it. Everyone has asked me about it. I’m assuming it’s substantial. Those things are usually driver-to-driver issues.
I don’t usually get in the middle of it. I’m friends with both of them so I’d just encourage both of them to talk to each other,” Denny Hamlin said. Kyle Petty reacted; “We have heard nothing publicly, until yesterday, Denny Hamlin finally spoke up, and kudos to Denny Hamlin for speaking up on behalf of 23XI. But the silence from that camp has been deafening,”.
