NASCAR hands Wallace one-race suspension for Las Vegas


 Bubba Wallace has been suspended from the next NASCAR Cup Series race because of his actions last weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Wallace will sit out this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He was not fined or docked points.

John Hunter Nemechek will drive the No. 45 Toyota for 23XI Racing in the Dixie Vodka 400. It will be his first Cup Series start since 2020.

“Our actions are really specific to what took place on the racetrack,” NASCAR chief operating officer Steve O’Donnell told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. “When we look at how that incident occurred, in our minds, really a dangerous act. We thought that was intentional and put other competitors at risk. As we look at the sport and where we are today, and where we want to draw that line going forward, we thought that definitely crossed a line, and that’s what we focused on in terms of making this call.”
