Bubba Wallace Suspended By Nascar For Behavior During Race At Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Because of his behavior during Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, NASCAR today announced that Bubba Wallace has been suspended.

Wallace was penalized for violating sections 4.3A, 4.4C, and E of the NASCAR member code of conduct, which is outlined in the NASCAR Rule Book, when he collided with Kyle Larson on lap 94 of the South Point 400 and then shoved Larson.

One of the five member actions that could result in a penalty, according to Regulation 4.4C, is “internally damaging or spinning another car, whether or not that vehicle is removed from competition as a result.”

Before the ban, Wallace said, “I want to apologize for my conduct on Sunday after the on-track incident with Kyle Larson and the No. 5 car.”

My actions do not reflect the underlying values of 23XI Racing and our partners, who have been essential to my tremendous rise to the top of this fantastic position.

In a statement, NASCAR stated.

When the Cup Series Round of 8 first match took place in Nevada, the incident started at the exit of turn 4, where LARSON drove high and hit a wall.

Wallace, the stage 1 winner, turned left into Larson’s right-rear quarter panel, causing the No. 5 Chevrolet to spin outward and strike Christopher Bell.

While Larson pursues an owner’s title for Hendrick Motorsports, Bell is still vying for a berth in the Championship 4. None of the three contestants was successful in moving on.

Following the Las Vegas weekend, NASCAR announced four additional sanctions in addition to Wallace’s suspension.
