DOVER, Del. — Joey Gase didn’t hold back on his opinion of Spencer Gallagher, saying that Gallagher “just sucks really, really bad” after their incident in Xfinity practice Friday morning at Dover International Speedway.
Gase and Gallagher made contact in Turn 3 and both hit the wall. Both were forced to go to backup cars.
Gase told Fox Sports 1 what happened: “He just flat out spun me going into (Turn) 3 for no reason. We were struggling really bad. I gave him plenty of room. He just drove right into me. I think it just shows how bad of a driver he is.
“Look right now in the garage stall. He’s one spot ahead of us … he has about probably five to seven million more dollars invested in his team than what we have. I think that’s basically all I’ve got to say. All he said (when Gase approached to talk) was ‘Get the hell away from me.’ He didn’t give me a reason or anything other than I guess he just sucks really, really bad.”
Gallagher saw the incident differently. Fox Sports 1 played part of his radio conversation after the contact. Gallagher said on his radio: “He just stopped going into (Turn) 3! What was he thinking?”
