A second racetrack has discovered a noose
On Sunday, someone entered the garage stall of Bubba Wallace to hang a noose by the No. 43 car. That happened in Talladega, Alabama just ahead of the NASCAR Cup Series race.

NASCAR contacted the FBI. They intend to use multiple cameras as evidence in addition to log book which show who was had access to the garage area during the suspected time period.
They stated they will use all resources to discovered who committed the act of racism. And they when they determine who did it, they will be handed a lifetime ban.
The race was run on Monday due to rain. The entire field of drivers surrounded the No. 43 car during the National Anthem.
