A rope found in the garage stall of Black driver Bubba Wallace at the NASCAR race Sunday was a garage door pull, not a noose, and had been there since 2019, federal authorities and NASCAR said Tuesday.
Northern District of Alabama U.S. Attorney Jay Town on Monday announced his office had launched an investigation along with the FBI and the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. Town said they were looking to see whether there are violations of federal law. No federal crime was committed, his office said.

doesn’t matter...he got lots of “racist” mileage out of it.....and no one that is black will believe the investigations....
“NOOSE UP..DONT SHOOT !
There was no noose.
It is however evidence of perpetually aggrieved people finding offense in some of the most benign things (as though we really needed confirmation of that).
This might take a little wind out of Bubba’s sails.
He’s been enjoying all this attention quite a bit.
Just maybe, he will learn a tincture of humility from this caper and let his car do the talking.
I was just talking to my wife about this. People walked by this everyday. They thought nothing of it.
One guy walks in and sees it in an entirely different light.
I have to wonder how many people at the track were asked about this before it went public.
I dont blame Bubba. But I do wonder if the people in charge are on such a hair trigger that they did not look around and say, how long has this been there.
I can imagine some garage guy with 5 minutes on his hand making a noose to make opening the door easier. No intent other than to make an improvement.
No noose is good news.
His great grandad, George Wallace would be ashamed that bubba couldn’t do any better than that. IT’S A GARAGE PULL! And, pretty sure bubba’s been in there before.
Barnhardt on it
But was their a Moose?
A noose once bit my sister.
My mother-in-law had one on her garage door pull, so does my Sister-in-law and when I had a house with a garage door pull it looked the same.
I guess we all “reicis” now.
"Thornton is reported to have told some of them that he once found a picture of a man hanging by a noose and racial slurs scrawled on a bathroom wall which he had taken pictures of with his cell phone, but police said that the state police's forensic examination of Thornton's cell phone found no such images."
Okay, to sum up:
I hate the wallace guy.
I hate NASCAR.
I hate the FBI.
I hate anonymous snowflake noose finder person.
I hate the media monopolies.
I guess I am a hater.
Dude must visit many garages.
Worked on a farm during the summer. All the trucks used to carry crates of blueberries has ropes exactly like that.
I hope Bubba isn’t niggardly with his apologies.
This guy is trouble. First he bitched about the Confederate flag, now this bull crap. He has “that” ‘tude and is just looking for trouble. And everybody just caves. Should have told him if he didn’t like the flag he was in the wrong line of work. He’ll wind up suing NASCAR for millions and win. NASCAR will rue the day they brought this jarf on board.
