Key Facts

  • Bubba Wallace has been penalized for running into race winner Alex Bowman on the cool-down lap following the conclusion of last weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series race at the Chicago Street Course.
  • Shortly after Hendrick Motorsports driver Bowman took the checkered flag in Sunday’s darkness-shortened race, Wallace drove up alongside him and slammed into the side of his No. 48 Chevrolet.
  • On Lap 25, Bowman clipped the side of Wallace’s No. 23 23XI Racing Toyota and sent him into a spin, which also forced Trackhouse’s Daniel Suarez to come to a halt in the No. 99 car.
