Bid on Bubba Wallace’s bumper from All-Star Open wreck

Chase Elliott explains why he thought Bristol was a perfect place for this year's All-Star Race, when he knew he had a chance to win, and why it was so special to be in front of fans again.

Break out your wallet for the “Bubba bumper.”

Front Row Motorsports is auctioning off the front bumper from Bubba Wallace’s No. 43 race car that was torn off after contact with Michael McDowell in Wednesday’s NASCAR All-Star Open at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The damaged bumper was deposited at McDowell’s hauler after the race. So in the spirit of finders-keepers, Front Row Motorsports decided to do good by partnering with The NASCAR Foundation to auction the bumper and raise money for Motor Racing Outreach.

“Everyone has an opinion of what happened,” said McDowell in the media release. “I have my side of things, Bubba has his and all of the fans have theirs, too. It’s one of the reasons NASCAR wanted to go to Bristol for the All-Star Race. We created the excitement and now fans can make a difference and own a piece of history.”
