No noose found at Talladega Superspeedway

According to NASCAR, there was no noose at Talladega Superspeedway. In fact, it was a garage drawstring with a gap. 

The FBI has concluded its investigation with no evidence to prove it was a noose. They showed that this drawstring had been there since last fall.

“The FBI has completed its investigation at Talladega Superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime,” NASCAR said in a statement. “The FBI report concludes, and photographic evidence confirms, that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall. This was obviously well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment. 

“We appreciate the FBI’s quick and thorough investigation and are thankful to learn that this was not an intentional, racist act against Bubba. We remain steadfast in our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all who love racing.”  

The NASCAR community thought that Wallace was being targeted. They began an investigation into the matter — which concluded two days later.

Wallace also thought that somebody was out to get him. But that was no the case. 

Even NASCAR President Steve Phelps threatened a lifetime ban for the person or persons responsible. It was a huge uproar for what turned out to be nothing.

    many many many people said this was fake but nascar jumped on the band wagon of blame everything wrong with the black community on southern white people. still waiting for the screaming apology from nascar that matches their screaming damnation of southern white people !!! WE the people who are fans of RACING feel offended by the black lives matter bull crap and demand that all black lives matter logos and signage be removed and banned permanently from any nascar track and racecar !!! you have nationally condemned ALL southern white people for something THAT NEVER HAPPENED !!! now as an apology, you should VERBALLY MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT THAT NASCAR WAS WRONG FOR CONDEMNING A GROUP OF PEOPLE FOR SOMETHING THAT NEVER HAPPENED, AND , THAT NO BLACK LIVES MATTER FLAGS, SHIRTS, OR CAR SPONSORSHIP WILL BE ALLOWED. WHAT YOU HAVE DONE IS CALLED DISCRIMINATION, REVERSE DISCRIMINATION. AND YOU HAVE DONE IT JUST FOR THE HELL OF DOING IT !! WE THE PEOPLE DESERVE AND DEMAND AN APOLOGY. IF YOU CAN BAN A SIMPLE FLAG FOR STUPIDITY, THEN BAN THE OTHERS FOR THEIR RACISM AGAINST ALL WHITE PEOPLE. YOU HAVE ALLOWED DARRELL WALLACE TO TURN A LOT OF PEOPLE AGAINST YOUR CORPORATION FOR SOMETHING THAT HE HAS NEVER EXPERIENCED . THINK OF THAT.
