Bubba Wallace got the win he so craved at Talladega and established a few NASCAR milestones in doing so.
Although most of the season, the 23XI driver wasn’t where he wanted to be, while Wallace would’ve at least wanted to finish the season on a high, he couldn’t do so, because of Corey LaJoie.
Wallace was taken out by Lajoie at the Phoenix Raceway in the final race of the season. And the 23XI man still hasn’t forgotten or forgiven Lajoie for wrecking him out of the race.
Off season felt almost like getting junked by @CoreyLaJoie 5 laps into a race. ALREADY OVER…

Corey LaJoie replied to Bubba saying “Next week we clashing” in a sarcastic tweet.

During Lap 7 in Stage 1, LaJoie got tangled with Wallace as he was going on the outside. This resulted in Bubba’s car spinning and hitting the wall with its rear end, effectively ending his race.
