The FBI says the noose found in Bubba Wallace‘s garage stall at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama had been there since 2019 — and they’ve determined “no crime was committed.”
In fact, NASCAR says the item in question is a “garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose” that had been positioned in the garage since last Fall.
NASCAR adds, “Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime.”
The FBI — along with U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town — just explained the situation.
“On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway. After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding this event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed.”
According to the FBI, Garage #4 — where the noose was found — was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week.
