NASCAR has suspended Xfinity Series driver Mike Wallace indefinitely for violating Sections 12.1; 12.8; 12.8.1.e of the rule book.
The rulebook for section 12.8.1.e reads:
“Public statement and/or communication that criticizes, ridicules, or otherwise disparages another person based upon that person’s race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, or handicapping condition.”
The driver will now have to attend sensitivity training before his reinstatement.
NASCAR did not disclose Wallace’s offensive act that led to the suspension.
Wallace responded to the suspension through his Facebook account.
“You know as I fly across the United States today I’m ready various people’s political views and I have to say a famous four star Military General that I spent time with in the MidEast told me Mike let me give you some advice don’t ever get in a conversation about politics or religion unless you are really smart. I said why do you say that comment His response it’s like being balanced on a single edge razor blade if you slip you will get cut!
Think about that before we all make foolish uneducated post! Moral of this story is most of use just repeat what we have heard we really don’t know.
Have a great positive day!”
Wallace has three Xfinity starts to his name this season.
