SAD NEWS: Alex Bowman Send A brutal massage to Bubba Wallace’s After NASCAR Fined Bubba $50,000

Following the Chicago race, NASCAR fined Bubba Wallace $50,000 for his interaction with Alex Bowman.
Bubba Wallace was penalized $50,000 by NASCAR for making retaliatory contact with Alex Bowman’s car following Bowman’s victory in Sunday’s Chicago Street Race.

Wallace sent Bowman’s car flying into the wall on the cool-down lap by door-slamming it.
Wallace had been turned by Bowman earlier in the race. Bowman accepted responsibility for the event and stated following his victory that he didn’t see any consequences for Wallace’s hit on him following the race.


About Wallace, Bowman remarked, “I’d be mad, too.” “I made his day miserable. The relaunch was disorganized. I simply made every incorrect choice I could have made. I struggled to get my windshield wiper switch to operate, but I was unable to do so. Missed the corner because I was concentrating on it.

“I slammed straight into him after locking all four tires. I completely wrecked his day by making a mistake.

When I make mistakes like that, I’m fairly hard on myself, and ever since it happened, I’ve been humiliated. I spent a lot of time sitting there feeling ashamed and angry with myself during the rain delay.

Wallace was fined by NASCAR based on two provisions of the Rule Book.

According to Section 4.4.B, which NASCAR quoted,

Member behaviors that might cost them between $50,000 and $100,000 in fines, as well as 25–50 driver and/or Team Owner Points. Additional penalties for violations include membership revocation, an indefinite suspension, or race suspension(s):

causing damage to or spinning another car, regardless of whether that car is subsequently taken out of competition.
Any conduct deemed to jeopardize the safety of an Event or otherwise constitute a dangerous risk to the safety of Competitors, Officials, spectators, or others.

Moreover, NASCAR referenced Section 4.4.D, which states:

Member behaviors that can lead to a fee, an extended membership suspension, or even the loss of membership:
