NASCAR, FBI Investigating Noose Found in Bubba Wallace’s Garage Stall

The United States Department of Justice and the FBI are joining NASCAR to investigate a noose found in Bubba Wallace’s garage stall Sunday afternoon at Talladega Superspeedway.

NASCAR President Steve Phelps held a conference call Monday where he addressed a few questions from the media.

Phelps also said he couldn’t be sure there wasn’t a security breach, but there’s a small amount of people who would have had the access to get to Wallace’s garage stall.

Social media has suggested the noose was a staged event, and Phelps was furious with that insinuation.

Wallace, the only full-time black driver in the NASCAR Cup Series, recently pushed the league to eliminate the allowance of the Confederate Flag at race events. 48 hours after Wallace’s request, the sport banned the flag at all NASCAR events.

Wallace released a statement on Twitter last night.
