Bubba Wallace engages booing fans at Bristol

Bubba Wallace engaged booing fans after the NASCAR Cup Playoffs rave at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Bristol Motor Speedway hosted a NASCAR race on Saturday night. The playoff elimination round was held at the half-mile track.

Bubba Wallace started the race 19 spots under the cutoff for the playoffs. Joey Logano ended up involved in a crash, while Kevin Harvick was having trouble with his car’s handling, and therefore he got lucky.

Wallace practically made it through to the playoffs’ next round at the final whistle. He only made four points’ worth of progress.

Four of the sixteen playoff drivers were eliminated and Wallace will now face a challenge in the NASCAR Playoffs round of 12 for the first time in his career.

Wallace exited his car after the race, got rid of his helmet, and then sat down on the ground next to his car as he was worn out.

However, Wallace was greeted by loud boos from the stands as he stood up for an interview.

“God, I love that s*** right there,” Bubba Wallace told NBC Sports as he reacted to a sea of boo’s from the crowd. “They counted us out. All they’re doing is adding fuel to the fire. I love it.

“I love where am at in this team. A career year. Just gotta keep it going.

“But, I’m mentally exhausted. Gave it my all there, battled hard and executed. That’s what you gotta do.

“Next week’s a reset. We’re just going to go out and have some fun and work our asses off.”

Bubba Wallace was trailing the leader by two laps in stage three, while Larson was in second place. Wallace was only four points above the playoff elimination line while Hamlin had a sizable lead.

“I’m running my own race,” Wallace said. “I don’t know, I’m pretty sure he thought he could go catch the No. 11, that’s a tall task.

“But, what I thought I had on the line was more important and what he thought he had on the line was more important.

“It’s Bristol, it’s racing. All good. We’ll go onto Texas and have some fun.”
