While Bubba Wallace has been in the midst of all the changes that NASCAR has gone through in the past months, he seems to have gathered fans who don’t like him in the process.
Bubba Wallace has been the frontrunner for NASCAR’s ban of the Confederate flag last month. He has also been very vocal about the racial injustice in the country, urging other drivers to speak out on such issues.
However, for all his deeds, the driver of No.43 Richard Petty Motorsports’ Ford seems to have gathered haters along the way. It was evident in the NASCAR All-Star Open at Bristol Motor Speedway, which hosted around 20,000 fans, the largest since NASCAR’s resumption.
Bubba Wallace was one of the 21 drivers contesting in the NASCAR All-Star Open to get one of the three spots for the NASCAR All-Star Race. According to The Associated Press’ Jenna Fryer, Wallace was ” booed when he was introduced, and many cheered when he crashed”.
Bubba Wallace was also booed when he was introduced, and many cheered when he crashed. NASCAR still has a lot of work to do to back up its position. The group Justice 4 Diversity held signs along Speedway Blvd. after the race.
