This past Sunday at Michigan, Bubba was seemingly held up by Joey Logano for around 20 laps before Wallace could make his move. This resulted in Wallace being upset and made him say, “22 earned another Ford contract.” Now, Spotter Freddie Kraft has clarified Bubba Wallace’s post-race comments on Joey Logano in the latest episode of Door Bumper Clear podcast.
During a podcast, Kraft said, “He wasn’t talking about the move he made on the restart. He was talking about the fact that he held us up for 15-20 laps. But Joey didn’t do anything wrong, I mean I would expect if we were leading like that and the Toyota was second, the Ford’s were faster behind him, do everything to hold them up and let me get away.”
Kraft mentions that even though they were faster than Logano, they could not overtake him for the first 10 laps. He concluded by mentioning, “It was just frustration on Bubba’s part.”
