A confrontation ends with a shoving match as the two drivers voice their displeasures with one another

What’s Happening?

During yet another poorly timed rain shower drivers Bubba Wallace and Aric Almirola were caught exchanging some words on pit road during the delay which resulted in the latter shoving Bubba before being separated by NASCAR security.

The confrontation started when a frustrated Almirola approaching Bubba over a dispute which happened on track. Bubba then seemingly said something back to Almirola that he didn’t like leading to the shove.

You Need To Know:

  • Bubba Wallace is no stranger to confrontation with other drivers either following the race or during a delay like today having been involved in a handful of controversies already this season. He has garnered a reputation of being a bit of a hothead.
  • Meanwhile, Almirola typically steers clear of controversy, being relatively clean-cut. As team owner and part-time FOX broadcaster, Tony Stewart pointed out in the video clip below, it must have been something pretty bad to get Almirola that animated.
  • Right or wrong, Bubba Wallace is by no means a fan favorite, only a few of those reasons being legit. It is clear on which side the majority of the NASCAR fanbase will come down on this. Most of the chatter online, however, seems to be focusing on the security officer who broke it up before a legitimate fight could commence. He is also the one who separated Chastain and Noah Gragson a number of weeks ago.

The Main Characters

Bubba Wallace and Aric Almirola are the two main cats who find themselves in the middle of this controversy. Reporter, Jared Haas, in the Charlotte Motor Speedway Media Center caught the footage that started it all.

In The Stands

LA claims that the security guard who broke up the “fight” before it could become a legit “fight” needs a raise. We agree!

MrBairdy theorizes that he was the same security guard from the Busch/Logano squabble many moons ago. Maybe?

Johnny So Fresh gives credit to Bubba Wallace for not escalating the tensions there. Yeah, it probably bodes well for him that he didn’t.

Jazmyne says the security officer must be a time traveler! Did she just uncover his secret?

Travis Webb has grown tired of the weekly antics put on by Chastain and Bubba.

On Your Screen

Eric Estepp of Out of the Groove also recognized that it was the same security guard. Good catch. Then Denny DeliversYT freaked out about his camel pants to match his camel shirt.
