NASCAR’s Cup Series debut at Daytona Road Course was certainly a race to remember with it also being the first time for many drivers.
The final few laps of the race messed up things for multiple drivers, however, the driver who suffered the most was No. 43 Bubba Wallace. The Richard Petty Motorsports driver was part of a final-lap wreck in the dying moments of the race.
Wallace was heading for a Top-10 finish all day. And with just two laps to go, Wallace was in eighth place and looking strong.

When the white flag dropped Bubba Wallace had already crossed the start/finish line, he was leading a pack of cars that were very close to each other, into the first turn. No. 22 Joey Logano then hit Alex Bowman, driving the No. 88 from behind.

That sent Bowman right into Wallace’s No. 43 Chevrolet and Wallace went off the course and for a spin. Luckily for Wallace, there was not much damage to his car. But he lost 16 places and suffered a lowly 25th place finish due to the incident.
