Bubba Wallace Fined for Post-Race Contact With Alex Bowman

Nascar Cup Series

Bubba Wallace has been fined $50,000 following a post-race incident involving race winner Alex Bowman at the Chicago Street Race, NASCAR announced July 10.

Bowman and Wallace made contact earlier in the Chicago Street Race when Bowman made contact with Wallace on lap 25, sending Wallace’s No. 23 spinning in turn 2.

Wallace went on to finish 13th, while Bowman won the race.

Following the race, Wallace made contact with Bowman, slamming the No. 48 into the wall on the cool-down lap. A similar but not identical incident between Chase Elliott and Daniel Suarez resulted in no penalties.

No other penalties were announced from last weekend.
