Bubba Wallace fined $50,000 for hitting Alex Bowman’s car on Sunday in Chicago

from www.nascar.com:

NASCAR officials issued a penalty Wednesday for an on-track infraction after the checkered flag of last weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series race at the Chicago Street Course.

Bubba Wallace, driver of the No. 23 23XI Racing Toyota, was fined $50,000 for violating Sections 4.4.B & D: NASCAR Member Code of Conduct during Sunday’s Grant Park 165.

During the cool-down lap after the conclusion of the 2024 Chicago Street Race, Wallace slammed the door of his No. 23 machine into the side of Chicago winner Alex Bowman’s no. 48 Chevrolet. The post-race confrontation came after a Lap 25 incident when Bowman’s Hendrick Motorsports Chevy tangled up with the No. 23, causing Wallace to clip the side and spin into the wall. Wallace subsequently finished the race in 13th and currently sits 17th in the playoff standings, 45 points underneath the elimination line for the 16-driver field.

The Cup Series continues its regular season at Pocono Raceway this Sunday (2:30 p.m. ET)…..
