Bubba Wallace Gives NASCAR Fans Middle Finger After Losing ‘All-Star’ Race

NASCAR star Bubba Wallace is no stranger to controversy.

It’s perhaps that penchant for drama that has turned the 29-year-old Wallace into something of a pro-wrestling villain in the world of NASCAR. Wherever he goes, he’s often greeted with a chorus of boos from fans of the sport.

That bubbling ugliness came to a head in North Carolina over the weekend when some of NASCAR’s biggest stars gathered at North Wilkesboro Speedway for the NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race on Sunday.Before that main event, however, there was the Tyson 250, a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race on Saturday.

It was a solid, if ultimately disappointing, finish for Wallace, who held a lead at one point before stumbling all the way to fifth due to worn tires.

After the event, while taking questions, Wallace was booed by fans, which prompted a reporter to ask him how he felt about that.

To his credit, he largely brushed off the negative reaction as being just a part of sports, but he did take a parting shot at the jeering fans and their pocketbooks.

“Hey, as long as you continue to live your life, judging a book by its cover, that’s who you are,” Wallace told reporters. “Don’t change it up for anybody else. That’s the biggest thing. That’s fine. I mean I finished fifth.

“I got a good payday. I’m good.”
