Noose in Bubba Wallace's Garage There Since Last Fall, Driver Not the Target of a Hate Crime: FBI



Wallace recently called on the stock-car racing organization to remove Confederate flags at raceways — which NASCAR did.

"The presence of the confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry," the company said in a statement on June 10.

"Bringing people together around a love for racing and the community that it creates is what makes our fans and sport special," the statement said. "The display of the confederate flag will be prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties."

Wallace has not yet addressed the investigation's findings, but wrote on Instagram earlier on Tuesday, "Supporting and thanking the pre-existing fans, and encouraging the new ones. For all of those new to the sport, we welcome you with open arms."
