The Cup Series race at Atlanta didn’t start well for Bubba Wallace as he spun and hit the wall just 10 laps into the race.
Wallace came to the race after two good performances in the previous two races. But the crash killed the chance of another good performance.
As a result of the clash, Wallace’s No. 23 car had significant damage to the front.

“Ah, damn. Sorry, team.” – Bubba Wallace
Bubba Wallace spins and hits the wall. … Tyler Reddick said he was worried same would happen to him as the cars are so on edge that deep in the field.
