Brian Scott and Bubba Wallace Jr. won’t be getting together for tea and crumpets anytime soon after the Kentucky race on Saturday night. The two drivers made contact on the track and had two separate brush-ups after the race before the feud spilled over to Twitter early Sunday morning.
During a mid-race restart, Wallace and Scott were fighting for position when contact was made. Both drivers saw a hole through the middle of Chase Elliott and Elliott Sadler and went for it. Neither would get that opportunity when they collided, sending Scott to a 13th-place finish and Wallace to ninth.
“The 6 (Wallace) just drove down into me,” Scott said during the NBCSN broadcast. “I never felt like he even gave me a chance to get in the corner. He loosened our right-rear wheel and it ruined our day.”
Scott wasn’t done there, though. He voiced his frustration after the race on Sunday morning, providing more information on his frustration.
Well @BubbaWallace when your so classless that you call my wife the C word you should be ready for something to happen…

So yeah, that might be overstepping the bounds just a little. Whether Scott was upset about the race or, you know, Wallace reportedly calling his wife unspeakable names, he apparently had a good reason to go after Wallace in the pits.
Wallace didn’t talk much about the incident following the race, only saying the incident was “early in the race.” The Roush Fenway Racing driver did share his side of the story on Twitter afterward.
Some say the interview was bad..apologies! Hard to gather the brains when ya get blindsided by him, his wife..and bus driver.. Anybody else?

Both drivers are still competing for position in the Xfinity Series this year, with Wallace ranked fifth in points and Scott at seventh. With so much made of the incidents on and off the track, this likely won’t be the end of the feud with six races remaining.
