After Saturday’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race, he spoke of the boos he received. He comes every race, so he’s used to it.
“As long as you continue to live your life judging a book by its cover, that’s you,” he said. “Don’t change it for other people. That’s the biggest thing. That’s fine.”
“So I finished fifth and got a good salary. I’m fine.”

Wallace’s second-place finish in the Cup Series event was overshadowed by what happened on the radio. According to Motorsport.com, a person was able to spread a derogatory message over the airwaves.
“Go back to where you were, the hole,” he said. “You are not wanted by NASCAR.”
A spokesperson for 23XI Racing told the website that Wallace had not heard or been aware of the message when he got on the airwaves. NASCAR is reportedly investigating the incident.
Wallace finished about 4.5 seconds behind Larson.

“Congratulations to Larson because the lights were out,” said Wallace. “They’ve been hitting hard all season, so it’s not bad to run second to them, but running second in an All-Star race sucks because you go home empty-handed. .”
