Bubba Wallace responded to Ray Ciccarelli’s comments regarding the Confederate flag ban by saying that Ciccarelli’s opinion “doesn’t really matter”.
Ray Ciccarelli made headlines when he said that he would quit racing citing NASCAR’s ban of the Confederate flag as his reason.
On the opposite pole of Ciccarelli is Wallace whose initiate brought about the ban. While the decision by NASCAR has received support from everywhere, such one driver’s opinion “doesn’t really count”, says Wallace.
Speaking to MSNBC, Wallace said:
“I’ve only seen one driver, and I wouldn’t really call him a competitor. I haven’t really seen him much on the track.
“The guys I’m racing with, my peers, they’re supportive of NASCAR and supportive of my stance on everything and that means a lot.
“One driver I haven’t heard much about in years doesn’t really count, doesn’t really matter.”
