NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace shared his view behind the wheel of when Joey Logano’s No. 22 went airborne over him on Sunday.
Wallace and his fellow NASCAR drivers are fresh off of participating in the Geico 500 at the Talladega Superspeedway. And even though it was Brad Keselowski that took home the victory on Sunday, it was Bubba Wallace who came away with perhaps the most insane footage from the entire race.
There were a number of big-time crashes on Sunday, but seeing Joey Logano’s No. 22 car catching some massive air was without a doubt the craziest. Wallace, along with all of the NASCAR fans who were watching, likely won’t forget what they saw anytime soon.
The driver of the No. 23 Toyota Camry for 23XI Racing posted his look at what happened from behind the wheel. Take a look for yourself down below.
“Alright, these gaming graphics are getting too realistic,” Wallace posted on Twitter.
Crazy, right? Thankfully, both Joey Logano and Bubba Wallace made it out okay. Wallace was able to leave the care center shortly after and Wallace’s Toyota Camry only took slight damage because of the wreck.
And if you are like us, you had to be wondering just how Wallace managed to keep his composure after seeing that happen right before his eyes. Well, he said that he nearly needed a new pair of pants after the race.
“I’m telling you, my underwear is worse than the car right now,” Wallace hilariously told his racing crew.
