Wallace criticized himself heavily in his interview following his DNF for a leaking oil line.

What’s Happening

Driver of the No. 23 MoneyLion Toyota, Bubba Wallace, bumped into the back of Kyle Larson in Turn 12, which also collected Erik Jones in his No. 43 Chevrolet. The contact broke the right rear toe link on Bubba’s car and his team noticed oil leaking from the car when he brought it to his pit box. This ended the day for the 23XI driver.

During his interview, Bubba was not too kind to himself.

  • Bubba hasn’t had great results to show for as of yet in the 2023 Cup season outside of one top 5 finish at Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago.
  • During his interview after getting out of the infield care center, he made harsh comments about him making “rookie mistakes,” and “needing to be replaced,” after a streak of poor finishes to start the season
  • Fans are quick to voice their reaction on Bubba’s comments about himself even though his problems started with a mechanical issue.
