    NASCAR Comes to Decision on Bubba Wallace Punishment After Violent Behavior at Race

    Published on

    NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace has been suspended for one race for purposely colliding into Kyle Larson’s car and then pushing him during Sunday’s South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

    Larson’s aggressive maneuver knocked Wallace’s vehicle into the wall while Wallace was leading the race with 29 laps remaining. Wallace then looked to have intentionally struck the rear of Larson’s vehicle. Larson’s car skidded into Christopher Bell’s path, eliminating both drivers from the race.

    The drama, however, was far from ended. Wallace then exited his damaged vehicle and assaulted Larson, shouting and shoving him.

    Wallace was suspended for breaking the NASCAR member code of conduct, according to a NASCAR news release.

    According to WCNC-TV, Wallace will miss the Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway due to the penalty.

    Wallace apologized on Twitter for losing his temper with Larson, explaining that their vehicles collided because he lost control of his vehicle.

    According to NBC Sports, NASCAR chief operating officer Steve O’Donnell stated on Tuesday that Wallace’s suspension was related to “what took place on the race track.”

    “When we look at how that incident occurred, in our minds it was really a dangerous act. We thought that was intentional and put other competitors at risk. As we look at the sport and where we are, we thought that definitely crossed the line,” he said.

    Joey Logano, the winner of the race in which the accident occurred, stated on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio on Tuesday that Wallace’s apparent revenge was “not ok.”

    “I don’t know if everyone realizes how bad that could have been. That could have been the end of Kyle Larson’s career. That to me was what was on the line. Or his life,” he said.
