NASCAR suspended Bubba Wallace for Tuesday’s upcoming race at Miami-Homestead after he spun and then confronted reigning champion Kyle Larson at Las Vegas Motor Speedway over the weekend.
NASCAR classified Wallace’s violation as conduct, which under the rulebook could cover Wallace’s intentional spin on Larson, his contact with a NASCAR official and even his showdown with Larson.
Wallace, who is the first NASCAR Cup Series driver to be suspended for an on-track incident since 2015, will miss Sunday’s race in South Florida. He was already eliminated from the playoff chase.
