Bubba Wallace is always a hot topic on the NASCAR scene. This time Wallace is the subject as his radio communications have been hacked. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was disappointed with the behavior of individuals and recalled the moment at Darlington Raceway.
Eernhardt Jr. believes that no one deserves bad treatment. "I was at Darlington a couple weeks ago. We’re on this stage, and it’s the 75 greatest drivers all lined up. Outside of me, these are the greatest drivers that have been involved in the sport.
All distinguished, of varying ages, everybody’s there to have this great experience. And the drivers are being introduced and walking by us, shaking our hand one after the other. And it’s this moment where everybody, you would think that it would be a moment where you’d behave," he said on "The Dale Jr.

Dale Earnhardt Jr on Bubba Wallace
Bubba Wallace is not a favorite driver of many fans, as well as NASCAR legends. Dale thinks that Bubba does not deserve such treatment. "And there’s this one guy at the rail, the rail of the fans that are down on the front straightaway, there’s one guy at the rail.
Everybody for the most part is just cheering. There’s a couple, you know they give a couple people a hard time, Denny (Hamlin) and all that. A smattering of boos. Nothing crazy. But Bubba gets introduced and walks across the stage and there’s this guy right in front of me and Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth and everyone else there, screaming at the top of his lungs, ‘Go home!
Go home! Go home!’. over and over, as loud as he could." Earnhardt Jr. is particularly angry about the NASCAR legends and their disappointing behavior. At one point, he thought about jumping down and arguing with them. "And it was so obnoxious.
I really wanted to jump down there and go, ‘Hey, could you stop? Is this really what you want to do right in this moment? Is this how you want to behave right now in front of all these incredible people that you’re standing in front of? Richard Petty and all these legends, you’re going to be acting this way?’
