Kyle Larson claims he has often 'gotten the middle finger' from Bubba Wallace Jr.
Reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Larson has been the talk of town since his last outing in the game's highest echelon, and not for the entirely right reasons.
The Hendricks Motorsports driver, widely regarded as one of the best drivers on the field in the 2022 season,
was seen at the end of an on-track feud between himself and 23XI Racing's Bubba Wallace Jr.
The South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was in the running for a potential victory after Wallace Jr. raced ahead and won stage one.
During the second leg of the 400-mile race, the #45 McDonald's Toyota Camry TRD driver was seen battling on the track with Kevin Harvick and Larson,
when the latter performed one of his 'do or die' moves in front of both. Exhibited.
Going three wide into a corner, Larson slammed down the racetrack with Wallace Jr. outside of him and ran into the Mobile,
Alabama native, resulting in a collision with the outside wall. It all happened when Harvick decided to bail.
#5 Unhappy with the on-track manners of the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driver, Wallace Jr. turned Larsen
and confronted him on the field as the two jumped out of their wrecked racecars.
Speaking about the physical changes and history between the two on the track, Kyle Larson explained how
he's been on the receiving end of a more traditional gesture of disapproval from Wallace Jr. in the past, saying:
"We've had a couple (events), not really anything here lately. I've gotten middle finger from him twice.
He had a speeding car and he felt like I was driving him into the wall of his The day is coming to an end.
He eliminated both of us. I would have been disappointed too and I don't think I would have let him down straight,
especially with all the things that have been going on here lately with injuries."
