NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace and the president of the United States have traded barbs on multiple occasions this year. It doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.
Earlier this year, President Trump took some shots at Wallace following the noose scandal at Talladega. A garage pull shaped like a noose was found hanging from Wallace’s garage stall. The FBI investigated the situation and determined that the pull had been there for months.
President Trump took a shot at Wallace, saying he was responsible for the sport’s TV ratings, which he claimed were bad.
Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX? That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!

Wallace responded to the president on social media, attempting to take the high road.
“Last thing, always deal with the hate being thrown at you with LOVE! Love over hate every day. Love should come naturally as people are TAUGHT to hate. Even when it’s HATE from the POTUS. Love wins,” he wrote.
Now, Wallace is starring in a new ad that sends a clear message to President Trump.
SportsCasting.com had some details on the ad:
The ad is like a year in review for Wallace and includes audio from news stories on the confederate flag, his beef with the President, as well as his driving the Black Lives Matter car. The corresponding video shows Wallace working out and then taking his car for a lap, with graphics of confederate flags and his supporters interspersed within.
It concludes with Bubba Wallace walking through a gathering of supporters and protesters, and then he is asked by one reporter, “How do you respond to the request that you apologize?” Wallace glares at the reporter briefly, then walks away.
The video cuts away to a black screen, and the words “Progress Owes No Apology” appear. The commercial ends with the company name and the tagline, “Proud to Support Unapologetic Change.”
