“I know I’m a bit new to running in front, but I don’t lift. I wasn’t even in a spot to lift, he never lifted either, and now we’re scrap execution.”

Wallace then told NBC about the physical confrontation with Larson: “He [Larson] White. He knows what he did was wrong. He wanted to question what I was doing and he never acquitted me. I just hate it for our team.

“Our McDonalds Toyota Camry was super solid – we just had to find a little bit in the short term and find the balance where we needed it. It would have been like Kansas and now the car is junk.”

Wallace has since apologized to Larson and others in a statement he posted to social media.

He wrote: “I compete with immense passion, and with passion sometimes comes frustration. Come to think of it, I should have represented our partners and core team values ​​better than I did by letting my frustrations follow me outside the car. You live and learn.” , and I intend to learn from it.

“I want to apologize to NASCAR and the fans, along with Christopher Bell, Joe Gibbs Racing and Toyota, for putting them in a playoff situation they didn’t deserve.”
