Straight Talk With Joe Rullo: NASCAR Owes Fans an Apology

NASCAR and Bubba Wallace said a noose was found in their garage this week, now an investigation by the FBI says that’s not the case.   After completing an investigation at the Talladega Superspeedway,  NASCAR has reported that the FBI determined no hate crime was committed and Wallace was not a target of a hate crime.  The FBI looked at video and photographic evidence and said the pull rope, fashioned like a noose has been there since last fall, at least.

“This was well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment,” the FBI said.

“I’m mad because people are trying to test my character and integrity,” Wallace said. Wallace said he was about to go out to dinner and got a phone call from NASCAR president Steve Phelps telling him of the incident.
