Bubba Wallace had yet another miserable race at Road America. The 23XI Racing driver’s day in Wisconsin was once again tainted by incidents that ruined his race.

And one of those incidents involved Joey Logano from Middletown, CT.
On lap 25, the Team Penske driver made contact with the #23 as he was taking a left turn. Logano clipped the left rear of the car as he squeezed into the apex at which Wallace had already turned into.
This led to both of the drivers spinning off the track, with Wallace ending up in the gravel.
After this, though, Logano asked his team to apologize to Wallace and the #23 team for doing what they did.
After the Joey Logano incident, Bubba Wallace faced a race full of moments that ultimately led to yet another disappointing finish. The contact with Logano wasn’t the only time Wallace’s #23 would taste the gravel.
He later spun out after making some minor contact with Brad Keselowski, after which he found himself in the gravel trap, from which he got his car out of.
The #23 driver ended his day with a DNF after a brake failure, leading to another addition to his list of bad races this season. In the more recent races, in the last five races at least, Bubba Wallace only has one finish inside the top 20.
Wallace would hope that doesn’t happen, but for that, he needs to deliver good results.
Question is, will he be able to do so?
