I wonder if the pushing and shoving on Larson by Wallace would have happened the same way had the intended victim been named Newman.
Nascar guys on the scene could have halted it sooner.
I'm sure the sponsors and team owners weren't real happy.

Pushing a track Official should be enough for a suspension on top of everything else!

NASCAR sat him for one race. Only a blind person would say that wasn't on purpose.
Yes Kyle misjudged his ability to stay low enough to avoid the whole thing but Wallace took out another Toyota and Chase contender with his "I don't lift" personality.

If you've been watching NASCAR long enough you'll recognize his driving style. We should just start calling him Smoke Jr. TS was well known to retaliate or move someone out of his way and his fans loved him for it. I distinctly remember him at Sonoma whining that he couldn't pass so he "moved" a few cars out of his way.

This is nothing new for NASCAR

Bumping someone out of the way or getting them loose is all part of the sport, yes. But running somebody down and slamming into them at a super speedway is a whole other level. Maybe not to the casual fan. Especially when they’re obviously having crash problems with this new generation car. Crashes have already ended one drivers career this year and there’s another’s in question at the moment. He’s lucky his hotheadedness didn’t cause a lot more carnage. Not to mention leaving the car, fighting, and hands on an official. He got off easy as expected.

Larson has won many more races than Wallace. But, his survival instinct wasn't working too good.... he should've kept his helmet on,.....and immediately dropped to the ground. And, Christopher Bell had rotten luck.

I know it's NASCAR tradition to swap paint, but intentionally "getting somebody loose" at 200 MPH is just as dangerous as what Bubba did. IMO both actions are wrong and they should be fined or sanctioned.

Yes, the new cars have issues and the drivers don't like them, even the Infinity guys are leery at the prospect of moving to a Cup car. At least the new cars have much better aero and brakes and it looks like they got the wheel nut issue resolved. I do wish they would let the teams go back to making some of their own parts. Innovation drives the sport.

I'd love to get a decibel reading when Bubba is introduced Sunday at Martinsville.

It’s going to be loud! On a happier note, looking around the internet, Kyle Busch’s popularity is going up off the charts since he jumped into a Chevy.

So Ty Gibbs dumps his Xfinity team mate and knocks him out of the final 4. Admittedly there was some beating and banging going on previously.
The boy said he did it because he wanted the Martinsville clock.
Payback's a beach.
