NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace suspended after altercation with Kyle Larson

-

O’Donnell added that NASCAR officials reviewed the data and considered multiple angles before deciding to suspend Wallace. “historically it’s been very rare if ever that we suspend drivers, so we don’t take that action lightly.”

Wallace’s suspension will force him to sit out the Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Oct. 24. Just one month earlier, Wallace became the first Black driver to win multiple Cup Series races with his victory at the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kanas Speedway.

Former champion of NASCAR Joey Logano—who was also competing in the Las Vegas race—also weighed in on Wallace’s actions since the on-track altercation, saying, “The retaliation is not OK in the way it happened.”

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

E! E!
