Bubba Wallace and Kyle Larson were involved in a heated incident at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday. The altercation happened after a massive crash during the NASCAR Cup Series race. Wallace has issued an apology for initiating the fight and letting the emotions get the best of him.

The race car driver issued an apology on Monday and admitted he was at the fault. Wallace, who is signed with Michael Jordan’s NASCAR team said that he learned a great from this altercation and vowed to do better in future.

I want to apologize for my actions on Sunday following the on-track incident with Kyle Larson and the No. 5 car. I compete with immense passion, and with passion at times comes frustration. You live and learn, and I intend to learn from this.

The whole ordeal began during a three-wide pass over Kyle Larson and Kevin Harvick. Larson shoved Wallace’s Toyota into the wall, leaving the 29-year-old driver furious. Wallace then bounced back down the track and followed Larson’s car down to the apron.

Wallace got out of his vehicle and marched toward Larson. He then shoved Larson numerous times and got in multiple shots before a NASCAR safety worker separated the two. NASCAR said they’re reviewing the on-track incident. Both racers will likely be subjected to discipline for the ordeal. Below is Wallace’s full apology.
