The chances of Bubba Wallace competing in the NASCAR All Star race were erased in the first stage of the All Star Open after tangling with Michael McDowell.
Wallace made contact with McDowell who had began the race on the pole while racing for third. Moments later McDowell appeared to turn down the track spinning Wallace. William Byron would then make contact with McDowell.
