Nice to see something good happen every now and then. Of course dickheads flying traitor flags over raceways isn't helpful, but one step at a time I guess.

It was another hoax! Apparently America is not a racist country, thus the need to make it up!

"This will not break me, none of the allegations of being a hoax will break me or tear me down," Wallace told CNN. "Will it piss me off? Absolutely. But that only fuels the competitive drive in me to shut everybody up." ....Bubba Wallace

What a rotten soul!

How is it a hoax?

1.1.2  JohnRussell  replied to  Vic Eldred @1.1    3 weeks ago
U.S. Attorney Jay Town and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp Jr. said their investigation determined that "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."

Someone working on the team that runs the car he drives told Wallace they found a noose in the garage assigned to him and the FBI and media were told. So what?  The FBI now confirms it was a noose , or something so close to the way a noose looks that it can be accurately described as a noose. 

Where is the hoax?  Was Wallace supposed to know it has been there since last fall? 

This was not a hoax, it was a misunderstanding.

It was another hoax, just like the last 5 or 6 national claims about "nooses!"   No racism, so they got to make it up. To convince whom?  All the people trying to get into America?   I hope they aren't wasting their time trying to convince me.

I'm happy to see the support that Bubba is getting. Now, NASCAR has to keep up the pressure to be sure that  Confederate flags are never shown at a NASCAR event again.

Hope they find the racist that put the noose in his area the POS ends up in jail.

So you're saying Bubba just follows what he's told, he doesn't have the common sense to look at the "so called noose" and say that's what you pull down the garage door with.  He needs to go on CNN and make an issue about it before he knows the facts.  sounds like the last three years of the Russian scam.

Why do you assume someone is racist for putting a noose handle on a pull-down garage door?

And why on earth would any sponsor pull out over a freaking handle?

The story that Triggered all the snowflakes on the left to loving NASCAR. The planted noose in Bubba's garage bay was actually a pull rope on the overhead door. Fucking Hillarious, And after watching the press eat this story up for 3 days they won't even post a picture of the NOOSE. This is a picture from the same bay from last year. And The left wonders why I find them so damn laughable.

It’s very similar to the Oakland “nooses” that turned out to be exercise equipment. Of course, the batshit crazy mayor of Oakland still thinks those ropes put up a black man are “instruments of terror” or some such nonsense, so good for nascar for returning to reality.

it would be nice if people took a second to investigate before crying racism. Save everybody lots of embarrassment and 15! FBI agents from wasting their time.

NASCAR is still a dying sport. But it is nice to see them go PC in an effort to get 15 more minutes in the limelight.

It is much easier to go PC than fix the real issues. Indistinguishable cars; vanilla corporate sponsored drivers; cars made to crash whenever they get close to each other; boring uncompetitive races (except for all of the crashes- which anyone catch stung together on youtube seconds after the race ends); and severe money issues between the have multi car teams and have not single car teams.

But at least they can be proud of losing a good portion of their fan base.

They would love to have those two hundred protesters buying their merchandise, paying to listen online to drivers and crew chiefs, and watching their failing product in the stands or at home. Chances are there are thousands more not at the protest that have spent their last money ever on NASCAR as well. At least it's demise will make for good questions in Trivial Pursuit. Should be fun trying to watch Gen Z type driver and crew chief names into their cell phones to figure who the hell they are.

Noose’ found in Bubba Wallace’s garage was door pull, had been there since 2019, officials say

NASCAR released this statement: “The FBI has completed its investigation at Talladega Superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the victim 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.”

I should hope that we are all relieved that this was in fact not a hate crime directed at Mr. Wallace, and that perhaps the media and others going forward won't be so quick to speculate and spin such stories into a frenzy.  That being said, it was good that NASCAR reacted immediately to what they initially thought could be a hate crime and that it was quickly resolved.  And at least we now know that by and large Mr. Wallace's peers in the racing community stand with him and not against him in any sort of racist way.

But why? It is better to rush to judgement- hype up a reaction that they can air immediately, and then slink away when proven wrong. There will always be another manufactured event for them to hype later, and their target click bait audience has a 15 second attention span- so they never have to apologize.

Ok, let's take a moment and look at the full picture shall we?

By all accounts, the 'noose' had been there for quite some time.

Bubba Wallace just happened to get assigned to that particular garage.

The 'noose' was reported by a team member not named Bubba Wallace.

Of course, at the time of the report, no one knew that it hadn't just been placed there.

As reported, the normal garage door pull has a wooden handle, doesn't seem that any others have nooses for pulls.

So at some point in the past, some good ole boy decided to play a joke and make a noose. Really funny stuff huh?

Only it became a non-joke when a black was assigned to the garage.
