*If you haven’t been paying attention to what’s going on in the NASCAR world, we certainly understand. We get it ’cause auto racing is not top of mind for most black people.
However, you might want to tune in to the racing world every now and then to stay up on a young brother, Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr., who’s making a name for himself in the game. On top of that, Wallace, who drives for the legendary Richard Petty, doesn’t take not crap from other racers, either.
Case in point, he’s in a feud right now with Denny Hamlin, who gave his side of his beef with Wallace in a series of Twitter posts Monday afternoon, clarifying why he remains angry at the NASCAR rookie.
Hamlin and Wallace collided Sunday on the last lap of the Daytona 500 while racing for second, and both cars then sustained significant damage in a crash that happened after the checkered flag. In a live interview on Fox afterward, Wallace said Hamlin “might need to take some Adderall for that one.’’
In a SiriusXM interview Tuesday morning, Wallace said “I’m OK, he’s not” about an ongoing text exchange with Hamlin about the incident. Hamlin and Wallace also had a heated altercation (a short video was posted on Twitter) in the Daytona International Speedway garage, where they met in passing from appearances in the media center.
Here’s the FULL story …
The Denny Hamlin / Bubba Wallace feud won’t die just yet. At the end of the Daytona 500, Hamlin and Wallace had contact and Wallace ended up in the wall after the finish line. Both drivers were upset about the incident, but neither agreed on exactly what caused it.
