DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Darrell Wallace Jr. was not happy after Friday night’s Xfinity race at Daytona International Speedway, complaining on Twitter about NASCAR’s officiating.

Wallace, who was penalized one position before the final restart for not maintaining his position, finished 20th after being collected in the last-lap crash.

Afterward, he went to Twitter to express his feelings.

NASCAR stated after Friday’s race that no one had been called to the hauler, and they were not aware of Wallace’s tweet at the time.
