Hours after it was announced that what was thought to be a noose was a garage door pull and no hate crime was directed at Bubba Wallace at Talladega Superspeedway, Richard Petty Motorsports reacted the investigation.
On Sunday, June 21, members of Richard Petty Motorsports discovered a rope tied in fashion of a noose in the garage stall assigned to the team at the Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, the statement said. In accordance with established protocols, our team member notified the crew chief who notified NASCAR of the presence of the item in the garage stall. NASCAR leadership determined the course of action going forward with an immediate investigation into the item and its possible origins. In the early stages of the investigation, NASCARs Steve Phelps notified Darrell Bubba Wallace Jr., of the information gathered and the presence of the item in the garage stall of his team.
Richard Petty Motorsports fully cooperated with NASCAR and authorities as they conducted an investigation into the situation. As a result of further investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), it was found that the item was not directed towards Wallace or members of the team. No member of Richard Petty Motorsports nor Wallace had any involvement with the presence of the rope.
We are thankful for the swift and thorough investigation by NASCAR and all of the authorities involved. We are also appreciative of the support from NASCAR, the motorsports industry, and our fans."

Will he forever be known as “Noose” Wallace? I hope so!
Whether some to many want to believe this or hear it but the NOOSCARgate via Bubba Smollett stain is going to last a long, long time upon your Petty legacy, Richard, bet.
WOW, disturbing to find out Petty is so dishonest. NASCAR fans weve been taken for fools by these jerks. Petty, once a hero, is a total fraud.
You got yourself a headcase there, Richie.
Perhaps you could consult with an NFL coach about it.
Will they call him Juicy Wallace or Bubba Smollett?
“Bubba” Wallace is turning out to be a freaking whiner. OMG. Can he complain much more?
my gawd! even richard petty’s gone full ninny ...
This was nothing but a preemptive strike to prevent more sponsors from pulling their sponsorship for fear of being called racists.
By not firing the little racist for his false accusations against white people, Petty has put himself against his country.
I would like to report nooses on the backs of all UPS trucks.
Will he forever be known as Noose Wallace? I hope so!
NooseCar ..... that’s how I’m thinking .... and no longer watching. Idiots.
Are there any photos of said noose floating around? I’d like to see for myself...
This is what happens when your organization sells out to Corporations.
How about an apology to all white people for the race-baiting slander against them?
Found a screen shot from CNN that shows it. Kinda looks like a noose. Would have to compare it to the draw rope of other garages....
