Michael McDowell’s car appeared to clip Wallace’s in an All-Star qualifying race, causing it to spin out into the wall.
“Just disrespect,” Wallace said in the video, below, which also includes a replay of the crash. “When you get hooked into the wall, I don’t even need to see a replay.”
He wasn’t done criticizing McDowell.
“I can’t wait for the God-fearing text that he is going to send me about preaching and praise and respect. What a joke he is.”
It also has been a tense time for Wallace off the track. As Black Lives Matter gained attention, Wallace, who is Black, successfully lobbied NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag. Then a Wallace crew member found a noose being used as a garage handle at the team’s racetrack stall.
But the collision on Wednesday hurt Wallace’s prospects on the track. The wreck in the NASCAR All-Star Open eliminated him from possibly taking one of the few spots remaining in the Cup Series All-Star Race afterward, ESPN reported.
Wallace apparently left McDowell a souvenir of their encounter ― the bumper off Wallace’s wrecked car.
McDowell doesn’t appear to have publicly responded to Wallace’s slam.
Chase Elliott won the All-Star Race and the $1 million first prize.
