Bubba Wallace disconnected from Sunday’s iRacing eNASCAR Pro Invitational Series event at the virtual Bristol Motor Speedway after a crash on lap nine with Clint Bowyer.

Wallace was frustrated by the ridiculous incident, where he was running the high lane, when Bowyer just slammed into him.

However, Wallace — who was sponsored in the race by Blue-Emu upset his sponsor by dropping out of the race early. According to tweets from Blue-Emu after the race, it appears they are done sponsoring the driver of the No. 43 car.

Wow. That’s savage. But understandable, as drivers were allowed two resets of their cars. Had Wallace used a reset, it would have kept the No. 43 in the race, and kept the Blue-Emu brand on the telecast.

Wallace finished dead-last in 32nd, 141 laps off the pace on Sunday.
