The FBI has determined that a noose found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage at Talladega Super speedway on Sunday had been there since at least last year, according to the bureau.

The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019,” the bureau said. “Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week.”

Further details were not immediately released. The FBI said no charges would be pursued in relation to the incident.

“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 release after the findings. “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.”

Wallace — the only full-time African-American driver on the circuit — had become a target for some critics of NASCAR in recent weeks as the face of the series’ response to the current social justice movement taking place across the country and its decision to ban the Confederate flag from its events.

The entire NASCAR family showed its support for him in the wake of the discovery of the noose, with all of his fellow drivers and their crews standing behind him in pit lane before the Geico 500 on Monday as the invocation was given and the national anthem played.

“The pre-race deal was probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to witness in my life,” an emotional Wallace said after the race.

NASCAR President Steve Phelps said during a news conference call Tuesday that he had been disturbed to think that a member of NASCAR was behind such an act and that it was “fantastic to hear from the FBI definitively that there was not a hate crime.”

Addressing allegations that have been circulating on social media that the noose was left as a publicity stunt, Phelps said that Wallace’s team had nothing to do with it, and that the evidence is clear that it was there at the time of the previous Cup Series race in the fall.

Phelps said that NASCAR is continuing its own investigation to find out how the noose came to be there.

Wallace did not immediately comment on the result of the FBI investigation.

NASCAR drivers and crews rally around Bubba Wallace in a powerful display of support and solidarity after a noose was found in the driver’s garage.

NASCAR announced that a noose was found in Bubba Wallace’s garage stall on June 21st. Two days later, federal authorities and NASCAR announce that the rope found in the garage stall was not a noose but a garage door pull. After the announcement, Wallace said, “From the evidence that we have, that I have, it’s a straight-up noose.” On Thursday, NASCAR officials released a photo of the rope found in the garage stall. They declared the noose was real.

NASCAR stands with Bubba, still has work to do | NASCAR America at Home | Motorsports on NBC
https://www.youtube.com/nbcsports”

Bubba Wallace steered the No. 43 to the front of pit road, NASCAR champion Kyle Busch pushing the famous car on one side and close friend Ryan Blaney pushing on the other.

The entire 40-driver field and all their crew members followed. After the car came to a stop, Wallace climbed out, sat on the window ledge and sobbed. Richard Petty, his Hall of Fame team owner, gently placed a hand on Wallace’s shoulder.

As federal authorities descended on Talladega Superspeedway on Monday to investigate the discovery of a noose in Wallace’s garage stall, the entire industry rallied around the Cup Series’ only Black driver.

“The news has disturbed us all and of course we want justice and know who and why,” said seven-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson. “And we want to stand with our friend.”

The 82-year-old Petty, at his first race since the coronavirus pandemic began and at Talladega on race day for the first time in more than 10 years, stood side by side with Wallace during the national anthem before Monday’s rain-postponed event. Everyone stood behind the car while Brad Keselowski held the American flag at the front of the display of solidarity.

The idea to stand with Wallace started with Johnson, while former series champion Kevin Harvick suggested they all push the car to the front of the grid, Wallace said.

One by one, after the anthem, they hugged Wallace. He then had a long embrace with Petty.

And then he went racing.

It was Wallace who successfully pushed the stock car series to ban the Confederate flag at its venues less than two weeks ago and he was the target when the noose was found hanging in the Richard Petty Motorsports garage stall Sunday afternoon at the Alabama track. A member of Wallace’s crew reported it to NASCAR, and by Monday morning U.S. Attorney Jay Town said his office, the FBI and the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division were involved.

NASCAR President Steve Phelps said security has been stepped up for Wallace — his team was also granted unusual access to its car Monday morning to ensure it had not been tampered with overnight — and the FBI was “currently on site” at the track.

The stock car series has tried to distance itself from the flag for years at the risk of alienating a core group of its fan base. At Wallace’s urging, it went ahead with the ban as the nation grapples with social unrest largely tied to George Floyd, an unarmed Black man who died in the custody of Minneapolis police.

NASCAR has not outlined how it will enforce the restriction and this week’s race at Talladega, in the heart of the South, presented the series with its biggest test in the early going. Disgruntled fans with Confederate flags drove past the main entrance to the track all weekend and a plane flew above the track Sunday pulling a banner of the flag that read “Defund NASCAR.”

Petty said in a statement he was “enraged” by the “filthy act” of racism. Retired champion Jeff Gordon called it a “cowardly” act while retired champion and current team owner Tony Stewart seethed in a social media post: “Angry. Outraged. Disappointed. Those words don’t fully describe how I feel. #IStandWithBubba and I’ll damn sure stand up to anyone who engages in this kind of behavior.”

Phelps said he was the one who told Wallace about the noose.

“It was a difficult moment for Bubba, a difficult moment for me,” he said. “He’s handled it with the grace that he has handled everything that’s happened over the last few weeks.”

The 26-year-old Wallace has not commented since a statement on social media late Sunday in which he declared: “T his will not break me, I will not give in nor will I back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in.”

Wallace has worn a shirt that says “I Can’t Breathe” over his firesuit and sported a Black Lives Matter paint scheme in a race last month in Martinsville, Virginia.

Under strict new health guidelines, a very limited number of people can access the garage. That would include crew members for each of the 40 teams, NASCAR employees, Talladega staff members and any contracted safety crews or security guards.

Phelps declined to discuss whether cameras in the garage area might have captured anything of value but noted NASCAR has an approved list of who is allowed access that has been turned over to authorities.

“It will be part of what the FBI is looking at,” he said.

NASCAR driver Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. will race with a #BlackLivesMatter paint scheme on his No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Chevrolet in Wednesday’s Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway, the team announced Tuesday. In his third full-time season at NASCAR’s highest level, Wallace is the only African American driver in the Cup Series, and he has been integral in leading the sport’s response to George Floyd’s death and the subsequent nationwide protests against racism and police brutality. At Martinsville, Wallace’s paint scheme will be mostly black with #BlackLivesMatter written on the quarter panel. On the hood, there is an image of a handshake between a black person and a white person, and the message below it reads, “Compassion, Love, Understanding.”In a video tweeted by Richard Petty Motorsports announcing the scheme, Wallace said it was inspired by last week’s Blackout Tuesday, explaining:”We knew the Martinsville race was open. We did not sell sponsorship for that, and it sparked and idea of: Why not run a blackout car? And I was like, ‘Absolutely, that would be incredible.’ Our team brought that idea to me, and I jumped all over it. And we had further conversations of, ‘Let’s make a statement behind it and run a foundation or a charity [on it] that’s helping push the narrative and the initiative of what’s going on in the world today, racial inequality. Let’s find somebody that aligns with that.’ And why not dive straight to the root and putting #BlackLivesMatter on the car? Most powerful hashtag going around, I feel like, especially these last couple days, last couple months really.”And it’s true: Black lives do matter. It’s not that we’re saying, ‘No other lives matter.’ We’re trying to say, ‘Black lives matter, too.’ If we put ‘t-o-o’ on the end, I think a lot more people would understand it. We want to be treated equally and not judged off our skin color and the actions that we get to ensure are based off of our skin color. It’s different, so that’s what we’re trying to get across.”We want to be a part of this nation as one and come together as one. But we always say, ‘All lives will not matter until black lives matter.'”Prior to the start of NASCAR’s race Sunday at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Wallace wore a black t-shirt with “I Can’t Breathe” and “Black Lives Matter” written on the front. And on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon on Monday, he called for NASCAR to ban the confederate flag, which it currently “disallows” but has not prohibited from races. Wallace was among several other big-name drivers, including Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin, who helped make a group video statement speaking out against racism and encouraging others to join them in educating themselves and starting discussions about anti-racism. Drivers shared the video on social media Sunday before the Atlanta race began, and FOX aired it during its pre-race broadcast.

#BubbaWallace #Talladega #NASCAR

NASCAR has released a picture of the noose that was found Sunday in driver Bubba Wallace’s garage at Talladega Superspeedway.

The noose was found just weeks after Wallace spoke out about the presence of the Confederate flag at NASCAR events. NASCAR subsequently implemented a ban at races.

On Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigations concluded that there was no hate crime at Talladega, NASCAR said. Evidence showed that the “garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall,” according to a statement released by NASCAR.

NASCAR President Steve Phelps during a Thursday press conference said that the organization checked garages across 20 tracks and found only one instance where a pulldown rope was fashioned into a noose.

In response to the FBI’s findings, Wallace said that he was relieved the investigation “revealed that this wasn’t what we feared it was.” In a subsequent interview with ESPN, the driver emphasized that he didn’t think reporting the noose was an overreaction.

NASCAR Shows Solidarity With Bubba Wallace After Noose Is Found In His Garage | MSNBC

NASCAR stars show solidarity with African-American driver Bubba Wallace after noose was left in his garage.

NASCAR stars came together to support Bubba Wallace after a noose was left in the African-American driver’s garage stall last weekend.

The sickening discovery was made at the Talladega circuit in Alabama ahead of Sunday’s race which later had to be postponed due to stormy weather.

The FBI have confirmed that they will be launching an investigation into the incident which comes against the backdrop of the Black Lives Matter campaign which erupted across the world following the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.

On Monday night – one day after the noose’s discovery – Wallace uploaded a selfie to his Twitter profile with the caption ‘Together’ and the 26-year-old also posted an accompanying video on his Instagram page which showed him surrounded by his NASCAR colleagues and rivals at the circuit.

There were emotional scenes as all 39 of Wallace’s fellow drivers and pit crew members walked in solidarity, escorting him and his number 43 Chevrolet Camarot to the front of the pit road.

Wallace sobbed as he made his way out of the car when it came to a stop before NASCAR Hall of Fame team owner Richard Petty put a hand on his shoulder and shared a few private words.

Sunday’s incident came after Wallace successfully campaigned for NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag at his home Alabama track.

A number of fans have voiced their anger with the ruling and a group of supporters drove past the track with Confederate flags in protest ahead of the race.

There was also a flyover from a plane which read ‘Defund NASCAR’ in the wake of Wallace’s campaign.

NASCAR President Steve Phelps stressed that there was ‘no room’ for racism in the sport and vowed to issue lifetime bans to those involved.

‘Unequivocally they will be banned from this sport for life,’ Phelps said.

‘There is no room for this at all. We won’t tolerate it.

‘They won’t be here. I don’t care who they are, they will not be here.’

Wallace says the discovery of the noose in his garage stall ‘serves as a painful reminder’ of just how far society has to go in the battle against racism.

‘The despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened,’ he said.

‘It serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism.

‘As my mother told me today, “They are just trying to scare you”.

‘This will not break me, I will not give in nor will I back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in.’

NASCAR President Steve Phelps said on Monday that the FBI will be investigating the discovery of a noose found in the Talladega Superspeedway garage stall of Bubba Wallace.

Wallace is NASCAR’s only Black full-time driver who successfully pushed the stock car series to ban the Confederate flag at its venues less than two weeks ago.

“Birmingham office of the FBI, and they are currently on site and they’ve started their investigation,” Phelps said during a teleconference call.

“You know, obviously, this is a very, very serious act and we take it as such. We will do everything in our power to make sure that whoever has committed this act comes to justice and comes to light,” he said.

U.S. Attorney Jay Town also confirmed that the FBI and the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division were involved in the investigation.

Phelps said the noose was found Sunday afternoon by a crew member he did not identify and security as notified.

He said security had been stepped up and the FBI was “currently on site” at the track, just two hours before Monday’s postponed race.

The stock car series, founded in the South more than 70 years ago, has tried to distance itself from the flag for years at the risk of alienating a core group of its fan base.

At Wallace’s urging, it went ahead with the ban as the nation grapples with social unrest largely tied to George Floyd, an unarmed Black man who died in the custody of Minneapolis police.

NASCAR drivers and crew members sent a powerful message to the world on Monday: “We stand with Bubba Wallace.” The show of solidarity came a day after NASCAR announced that a noose was discovered inside Wallace’s garage stall at Talladega Superspeedway.  A massive crowd pushed and followed Wallace’s No. 43 car as he sat in the driver’s seat during pre-race activities.  Wallace, NASCAR’s only full-time black driver, then exited the car and embraced Hall of Fame driver Richard Petty, who owns the team Wallace races for and had not attended a race during the coronavirus pandemic. “The drivers feel very strongly that they want to show their support of Bubba,” NASCAR president Steve Phelps told reporters. “He’s a member of the NASCAR community. He’s a member of the NASCAR family.”  The crowd stood beside Wallace during the national anthem. Wallace tweeted a selfie he took on the track of the moment, writing, “Together.” Jimmie Johnson, in an interview on Fox before to the race, explained …

A noose was found in the garage stall of African American Nascar Driver Darrell Wallace Jr. and the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports team Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama, NASCAR said in a statement released Sunday night.

NASCAR launches an investigation into the noose found in Bubba Wallace’s garage statement:

“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.”

In his third full-time season at NASCAR’s top level, Wallace is the only Black driver in the Cup Series and has been integral in leading the sport’s recent commitment to fighting racism and injustice. His largest impact so far was calling for NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag from all events, which the governing body did on June 10.

Bubba Wallace reaction on Twitter:

“Today’s despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. Over the last several weeks, I have been overwhelmed by the support from people across the NASCAR industry including other drivers and team members in the garage. Together, our sport has made a commitment to driving real change and championing a community that is accepting and welcoming of everyone. Nothing is more important and we will not be deterred by the reprehensible actions of those who seek to spread hate. As my mother told me today, “They are just trying to scare you.” This will not break me, I will not give in nor will I back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in.”

A day after a noose was found in the garage stall of Bubba Wallace, NASCAR’s only full-time African-American driver, all of NASCAR’s drivers as well as legend Richard Petty stood in solidarity with Wallace ahead of the Geico 500 at Talladega. Wallace was moved to tears by the show of support.
