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.”
Bids on the bumper can be submitted by going to www.nascarfoundation.org/motorracingoutreach.
When life gives you lemons, auction them off and raise money for @FollowMRO. May not agree to what happened on track, but we can agree on a positive outcome from the situation. https://t.co/F8cyXdjEmv
