NO NOOSE IN BUBBAS GARAGE
The noose found in Bubba Wallace’s garage stall at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday had been there since last fall and is a misunderstanding, the FBI said in a statement Tuesday.
“The FBI has completed its investigation at Talladega Superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime,” the statement on Twitter read.
On Monday during the rescheduled GEICO 500 race at Talladega, NASCAR drivers and crew members showed solidarity for Wallace, who is Black, by pushing his car to the starting line , McClatchy News reported.
But on Tuesday, after an investigation, 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.”
