Is it so hard to imagine Bubba Wallace winning a NASCAR Cup Series race on his own merits?
Some fans claim NASCAR rigged the Yellawood 500 playoff race at Talladega Superspeedway in Wallace’s favor Monday. Wallace earned the first NASCAR Cup Series win of his career and became the first Black driver since 1963 to enter victory lane in NASCAR’s top level. His historic achievement prompted celebrations from the auto racing and wider sports communities alike, but some fans claim Wallace didn’t deserve the victory.
Wallace is NASCAR’s only Black driver. Anyone care to guess why fans believe NASCAR engineered Wallace’s win? The timing to do such a thing would be odd, as he has been on the circuit for four years and started 143 races before finally winning one.
