It was Bubba Wallace‘s race for the last alp by FOlds of Honor QuikTrip 500 in Atlanta in a wild and chaotic environment where your experience or expertise mattered less when it came to who the drivers were who went crazy or crashed,

Henrik Motorsport‘S William Byron became the team’s 3rd driver to secure a win this season after fending off Bubba Wallace who had the most enviable position before the finish line as he was in the right position to take the win with the helpful nudge for a Slingshot to win the last round. But things are going perfectly for Byron as everyone behind Wallace started dueling for position, giving him no opportunity to hit back.

Bubba Wallace, who was on the outside and nearing the checkered flag, thought he might get a nudge Ryan Blaney and he attempted to execute the plan, which backfired and forced him to land loosely against the wall, losing several places and ending up in P13. Find out what Bubba Wallace said about the disappointment.

Bubba Wallace admitted he and his team wanted the win, but they came up short on the final stretch, saying: “That’s where I wanted to be. …We came up short‘ said Bubba Wallace. He added his rival and winner William Byron did everything right when it came to defending him, adding that he had a faster car.

I was trying to get a run-on Byron. He did a really good job, his car was fast and he lifted to block the ride, which was the right thing to do.‘ said Bubba Wallace.

Bubba Wallace went on to explain his fall, saying he had a good run not to let eventual runner-up Ross Chastain in, but eventually he did and Wallace claimed it was for good then, knowing they will be out soon . He added that things quickly went south after a poor timing challenge between him and Penske Racing’s Ryan Blaney that caused the crash that ended up ruining his dreams.

So if the floor [was] coming I went down to block it thinking I had a good run not to let the 1 [of Ross Chastain] in and he came in and it was all good because I knew they were going to falter a little. And then it was just bad timing when the 12th [of Blaney] and i came together. It looked like he hit the fence behind me and I don’t know how I didn’t.‘ Bubba Wallace explained.
