BREAKING: NASCAR released a statement regarding the FBI investigation of the noose found in Bubbe Wallace’s team Garage at the Talladega Superspeedway:

“The FBI has completed its investigation at Talladega Superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime. 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.

Wallace’s team found the noose hanging above his car before Wallace could see it. It has upset not only Wallace and his team, but a lot of the NASCAR drivers and officials were outraged.

The Team drivers and pit crews walked along side Wallace’s #43 car as it was pushed to the #1 starting spot in yesterday’s run of the Geico 500.
