  • Why don’t you just drive? When you can’t drive and win how do you stay noticed? You pull the race card and use it to the max.

  • Why so many news stories and nothing about Wallace is new. Using words such as “STAR” or outstanding to describe him seems very much undeserved. Please.... enough already!!! Hold the praise until he earns it.

  • Like other sports. It takes real talent to fill the position. stop the race batting B. S.. Unless you want all sports to be required to have ethnic equality. From Nascar to Basketball to even golf. It takes talent. Forget the race.

  • He's not good and wish they would stop referring to him as a star. One advantage he has over other mediocre drives, like himself, is that he's using the race card to stay in the sport. I'm sure some will be offended by this but it's the truth, sorry.

  • Yeah bubba. Thanks for for the courage to be a little cry baby. You do see color first. IMO. You want ppl to believe there’s a problem, and truth be told there isn’t one. Removing a flag won’t bring ppl that don’t want to be there. Why go see cars when you would rather see that other cry baby play basketball. Also like King James speaks before seeing the whole picture. So not unusual 🥱

  • The dude is a joke plays his skin color card like a fiddle it makes me so mad that everyone listens to him just cause hes black he has nothing intelligent to say pure stupidity spews out of his mouth he wants more diversity in nascar so where is the diversity in the nfl or nba u dont hear about that people like him is the reason this country is divided america will be united when they stop seeing black and white and start all seeing ourselves as americans cause thats what we are cause we aint caucasian american or african american we are americans and its not only violence against blacks its cops being violent against everyone cause most cops now days are not good people

  • Yes censorship is always the answer, maybe if he didn't pull that noose hoax he would be more respected

    Mathew HosierMathew Hosier9 күн мурун
    • I didn’t like the noose hoax either, but I mostly blame NASCAR for that. From what I understand, he wasn’t even allowed near the garage, so he only found out about it by ear, so he believed it. Then he saw the picture and shared it. He eventually played along and that’s where he lost some people, but it was a publicity stunt pulled by NASCAR. Bubba is just an average NASCAR driver.
