For hilarity this time, NASCAR driver Alex Bowman gets sprayed for the 2nd week in a row
Corey LaJoie has now provided A+ content two weeks in a row.
Last week, LaJoie was frustrated that no Ninja Turtles were featured on the new “turtle curbs” on the ROVAL. So, he went to the store, grabbed professional grade spray paint.
Around midnight, he walked to turn 17 with the can of spray paint.
On the curb that faces the grandstands, LaJoie painted a Ninja Turtle. He did this without permission but the track approved and left it there for the race the next day.
During that race, Bubba Wallace and Alex Bowman got into it on the track. Wallace flipped Bowman off for multiple laps. Eventually, Alex Bowman just purposefully turned him into the wall.
After the race, Alex Bowman climbed from his car and sat on the ground against the door. He was receiving medical attention after a week of being dehydrated and sick.
Bubba Wallace approached to voice frustration. He then tossed Gatorade in the face of Alex Bowman.
Corey LaJoie sprays Alex Bowman
This week, NASCAR has unloaded at Dover International Speedway. It’s the first race in the Round of 8 of the NASCAR Playoffs. With the 2nd place run last week, Alex Bowman has advanced into this round.
He stood with a circle of reporters at the track. As he was answering questions about the altercation from the week prior, Corey LaJoie was on his way out of the media center.
Before exiting, LaJoie reached through the crowd of reporters and sprayed Alex Bowman with water. Both drivers smiled and the reporters laughed.
“At least that’s just water. It doesn’t burn in my eyes,” Alex Bowman says with a smile.
“That was good. I love Corey, he is hilarious.”
Bubba Wallace took a lot of heat throughout the week from NASCAR fans. Specifically for the fact that Bowman was recieving medical attention at the time of the altercation. However, Alex Bowman didn’t see anything wrong with it…
“I understand it. People are mad inside and outside the race car,” Bowman said on Friday of the Gatorade throwing incident.
“I get it. I don’t think it was as big of a deal as everybody made it out to be.
“We all race together 30-something weekends a year. We’re around each other the entire time. There’s going to be people that you do and don’t like. That’s just part of it,” Bowman concluded.
