Kenny Wallace remains one of the most outspoken and rather brave personalities in the sport even today. The former NASCAR driver is someone who doesn’t hold back on his opinions and thoughts on things, issues, and subjects both in and out of stock car racing.

Most recently, Wallace posted a tweet after the arrest of Sam Bankman-Fried in the Bahamas. Bankman-Fried is the former CEO and founder of a crypto trading firm, FTX, and he was on the run after controversial findings from his side of things.

According to CNBC, the crypto trading firm “imploded” after similar circumstances as that of a bank run.

This led to a collapse and a finding which revealed, “a highly concentrated position in self-issued FTT coins, which Bankman-Fried’s hedge fund Alameda Research used as collateral for billions in crypto loans.”

So, after the report of his arrest, the former NASCAR driver asked a burning question.

“Really happy that FTX, “Sam man” has been arrested. Never understood how BILLIONS of dollars disappear and you just let him be,” Wallace tweeted first.

He then wrote in a different tweet, Furthermore. In racing if your sponsor is found to be illegal you have to return your sponsorship money to the government / investors. Most of Sam’s money went to the Democratic Party. Therefore that money “should” be returned to the investors.”

“We will see?”
