Bubba Wallace and Corey LaJoie throw football back and forth over the catch fence at Michigan International Speedway
On Sunday afternoon, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series field rolled onto the race track after a brief weather delay. Just as NASCAR was set to drop the green flag at Michigan International Speedway, the rain returned.
Bubba Wallace, Corey LaJoie, Daniel Hemric and Ryan Blaney among other drivers found a football. It started as a came of catch between drivers on the pit lane.
That game was soon turned on the fans. Bubba Wallace grabbed the football and threw it over the safety catch fence and into the grandstands where die-hard race fans waited out the weather delay.
At first, a fan who caught the initial throw thought he was holding onto a rather unique souvenir to collect at a race track. The fan soon realized that Bubba wanted it back.
