NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace took to social media on Friday night to roast fellow driver Austin Dillon for his haircut. Dillon was providing some guest commentary at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

That race began at 8 p.m. ET on Friday night, airing on Fox Sports 1.

Meanwhile, Austin Dillon is a two-time NASCAR champion in his own right. And the 30-year-old is no stranger to the NASCAR Truck Series having won the driver’s championship in 2011.

In addition, he also won the 2013 NASCAR Xfinity Series driver’s championship. Dillon has taken home three NASCAR Cup Series races. That includes the prestigious Coca-Cola 600 in 2017 and the Daytona 500 in 2018.

His impressive resume is an obvious part of why he has a spot guest commentating tonight’s race in Las Vegas. However, it was apparently his hairstyle, and not his ability to commentate on the race, that drew the attention from fans and followers. One of those followers being fellow racer, Bubba Wallace.

Wallace took to Twitter to post a hilarious gif of a young John Travolta combing his hair back.

“That flow @austindillon3 😳” Wallace captions his post.

Fans and followers of NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace seemed to have been caught off guard by Austin Dillon’s hairstyle as well. Jaclyn Roberts, (@JRoberts24199) sent a reply to Wallace’s gif with her own story about seeing Dillon on television.

“🤣🤣🤣 my husband seen him and just started shaking his head,” she replied. “I instantly knew why lol.”

Another Twitter user, Craig (@Craig19_69), commented saying, “Oh…my…WTF is up with that hair? It disturbs me deeply.”

Multiple other NASCAR fans chimed in with laughing emojis.
