Bubba Wallace , was informed by crew chief Barker that he needed to stop following a loose wheel. As he tried to stop, his car was hit in the tail by Tyler Reddick’s ride at Nashville.

Wallace explained the pointed criticism he made toward members of his 23XI crew last weekend were a result of his passion to win and shouldn’t damage his relationship with them.

“We have a team capable of winning, cars capable of winning,” Bubba said as he prepared for the NASCAR Cup Series race Sunday at Road America. “That just creates passion.”

“The team still has a great relationship,” Wallace added. “Not everybody’s going to be happy in a sport like this and a business like this. Just got to work to do your best. I’ll do better and be better.”

Bubba Wallace remains alive in the hunt for a Cup Series playoff spot. However, a win is needed to secure his spot. Bubba currently sits 24th in the standings and 139 points below the cut line with nine races to go in the regular season.

  1. There is no way that bubba would cuss me the way he did bootie and that team.after Nashville me and mr.Wallace would of met in the hauler and we would of got all that straightened out.when I got done with him he would not of ever cussed me or the crew again.he acts like he’s perfect when I have seen him wreck by himself so before I would take him cussing me he would find himself against a rock and hard place.the wall is what I’m speaking of when the tire come off doing about 150.that would break that cussing up.come on Denny get another decent driver he will never be a NASCAR driver.

    1. You gotta use capitol letters at the start of a new sentence man. Like how I just used a capitol L instead of a lower case l.
      Go ahead and call me the english language police or whatever. It just drives me crazy, and I bet I’m not alone.
      Plus you will look somewhat intelligent rather than looking like you didn’t make it past fifth grade. Which is fine. My dad didn’t go past elementary school but was smarter than hell.
      Ooh-wee, looks like I went on a bit of a rant there, didn’t I?
      Felt good! Ha!
