William Darrel Wallace Jr., aka Bubba Wallace, is one of the renowned American stock car racers from Mobile, Alabama. The 28-year-old was awarded 2010 K&N Pro Series East Rookie of the Year, 2008 UARA-Stas Rookie of the Year, and won 2017 LTi Printing 200 (Michigan).
Son to Darrell Wallace Sr. and Desiree Wallace, Darrell Wallace Junior recently won his first-ever NASCAR Cup Series at Talladega Superspeedway. First time since 1963, a Black driver won a Nascar race. However, fans think the race was fixed for Bubba Wallace.
Some NASCAR fans believe the race was rigged; one person wrote, "So very disappointed in NASCAR! Postponed the race due to rain, knew rain was in the forecast for the next day, and had them race anyway. These playoff races are too important to a driver that can't place better than 20th on any other day. Green flag pit stops and you call the race. FIXED!!!"
Another fan wrote, "Yep, not surprised NASCAR has to shorten the race so golden boy Bubba Wallace can win (laugh emoji). Bubba will never win a real race. I am done watching NASCAR. So long!!! And I'm muting this conversation, bye NASCAR. Gonna watch a real category like F1."
So, was the race fixed? It will be a tough one; however, some experts have some explanation that proves the race was a fair one. Experts say there were only 20% rain chances on race day; moreover, NASCAR can't control other drivers randomly hitting each other inside a 40-car draft. But still, if the race was rigged, the people behind are super intelligent!
It's easy to fall for the conspiracy theory; however, we are not denying or accepting that the race was fixed. The authorities will investigate it for sure. No matter what the conspiracy says, NASCAR revealed that Bubba Wallace's name would be inscribed there in perpetuity.
