Bubba Wallace was his worst critic after his day in Circuit of the Americas In Austin, Texas, early Sunday.
Wallace will receive his third DNF of the 2023 season after being involved in a crash on lap 11 of the Grand Prix Car EchoPark in Texas. Wallace got into the back of Kyle Larson and his car suffered a broken toe among other mechanical problems. He finished thirty-seventh.
His frustrations boiled over when he got out of his car. He then made some harsh criticisms of himself in an interview with FOX after he was cleared from the inpatient care center.
“I’m trying very hard not to go down this slippery slope of self-doubt here,” said Wallace. “Two weeks in a row of rookie mistakes after six cup years? Need to be replaced.”
Wallace finished At 20th at the Daytona 500 and 30th at the Pala Casino 400 in California. He finished his first top-five in Las Vegas at the Pennzoil 400. He followed that up with a 14th-place finish at Phoenix and a 27th-place finish at Atlanta.
The No. 23 driver is off of his best year to date in 2022 when he finished 19th and took a win at Kansas. He also finished in second place twice during the year.
He has never competed in the NASCAR Cup Playoffs.
