NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace crossed the line during an argument with Alex Bowman on Sunday.

According to Yahoo Sports, Wallace was upset because Bowman had spun him out on lap 42 of the race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

He came up to Bowman, who was getting medical attention, exchanged a few words and then proceeded to splash water in his face. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

I don’t know anything about NASCAR, but I might have to start watching a bit closer if this is what happens at races. (SLIDESHOW: This Blonde Bombshell Might Be The Hottest Model On The Internet)

What a bizarre and unexpected move from Wallace. He just walked right up to him, said something and then hit him with the cold water splash. (SLIDESHOW: 60 Times Abigail Ratchford Wore Almost Nothing)

If you splash water in another man’s face, it’s an automatic reason to go. I don’t care if it’s NASCAR, the NFL, the NHL or any other league.

If you throw water in another person’s face, all bets are immediately off. It’s time to start throwing haymakers.

I say that as somebody who isn’t pro-fighting. In fact, I’m very anti-fighting, but you can’t just let people throw water in your face.

Again, I’m not a NASCAR expert at all, but I’m pretty sure a water splash is still a 100% certified reason to start swinging.

Wallace should consider himself lucky that Bowman handled it calmly, I’m not sure how many other guys would have.

What an absolutely wild sequence of events.
