FBI closes NASCAR hate crime investigation

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has ended its examination of an alleged noose found in the stall of NASCAR’s only black driver at Talledega over the weekend, ruling that no hate crime occurred. The knot turned out to be a hand loop tied to a rope used for manually opening and closing the door to bay four in the drivers’ garage area. Bubba Wallace has been outspoken in recent weeks against fan culture that involved the confederate flag and raced two weeks ago with a special Black Lives Matter paint theme on his 43 car. The alleged noose was reported by a crew member and not Wallace himself. Reports indicate he never actually saw it, and yet, Wallace appeared on The View and called those skeptical of the idea that there was ever a noose in the garage stall “simple-minded.”
