When Bubba Wallace went hard into the wall at Pocono Raceway after losing his brakes back in July, everyone watching feared the worst.

Fortunately, Wallace was OK — if severely shaken up — but the same can’t be said for his car.

Wallace’s decimated No. 43 Chevy got a fitting send-off, however, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. granting it a burial plot in his NASCAR graveyard in Mooresville, N.C. Bubba and his crew even held a mock funeral for the occasion.

In case you missed it, here’s the scary moment from the Gander Outdoors 400 this summer:

Between this wreck and his post-race fainting incident following his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race last year, it’s probably safe to say Wallace isn’t eager for his next trip to the lovely Ponocos.
