A noose was found hanging in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace's garage at Talladega. He was behind the removal of the confederate flag from all NASCAR events following the murder of George Floyd.
Making things worse was the fact that whoever put the noose there had to have NASCAR credentials to be allowed into Wallace's garage. Both NASCAR and Wallace released a statement after the noose was discovered.
Via Yahoo Sports:
“Late this afternoon, NASCAR was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the 43 team. We are angry and outraged and cannot state strongly enough how seriously we take this heinous act. We have launched an immediate investigation and will do everything we can to identify the person(s) responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism in NASCAR and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all.”
It's good to see Wallace isn't going to let this slow him down. He recognizes that the majority of his fellow drivers have supported him. He also knows that this is a weak attempt to intimidate him and it's not going to work.
