Bubba Wallace and Kyle Larson were both involved in a heated confrontation at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday in the Cup Series playoffs race.
The altercation began at Stage 2 of the South Point 400, when Wallace who won Stage 1, ended up running side-by-side with Kyle Larson in Turn 4 of the track.
Larson, who was driving the No. 5 Chevy, bumped Wallace’s No. 45 Toyota into the wall while trying to make a three-wide pass.
Bubba Wallace then bounced back and followed Larson down to the apron, where he appeared to have deliberately hook the No. 5 in vengeance sending him spinning into the path of Bell before they both crashed into the wall.
