Bubba Wallace has shown his temper in the past at real NASCAR races. He was spun out by Alex Bowman during a race last season after Wallace taunted him with a hand gesture on several laps. Afterward, Wallace sought out Bowman and splashed water on him.Wallace, 26, is in his third season driving the No. 43 Chevrolet for Richard Petty Motorsports. The number remains closely associated with Petty, who retired from racing in 1992 with 200 career victories on NASCAR’s top circuit.Wallace was the 20 18 runner-up for rookie of the year for a season that began with a second-place showing in the Daytona 500. He previously drove for Joe Gibbs Racing, Kyle Busch Motorsports, and Roush Fenway Racing, and has six career victories in the NASCAR truck series.
At a time when other sports leagues are completely shut down, auto racing has been able to provide some semblance of entertainment the past few weekends through iRacing, a series of streamed online competitions.Combat games are the most common fare for cable networks that have dipped a toe into online eSports.

More than 1 million viewers watched last week when Fox showed the race over one of its cable networks and allowed broadcast affiliates to show it. IndyCar set up its own series in partnership with NBC the week after NASCAR’s debut.
