Results of the FBI – Bubba Wallace Hate Crime

Tuesday, the FBI concluded after an investigation that the noose had been in garage 4 as early as October 2019 and since “nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned” to that garage (it was assigned to him last week), no charges would be pursued.

In its own statement, NASCAR noted, “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.” The statement also said: “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.”
