The NASCAR fans greeted Bubba “Jussie” Wallace with a huge cheer of Boos in the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee after his first appearance on the racing track after the fake Noose Incident in his garage stall.

Last month the official staffs of Wallace reported that they found a noose in his garage stall in Talladega Superspeedway Race.

Now, we should go back to the last month to know what happened actually. What Wallace’s staff found was a garage door pull but for several days Wallace tried to exploit this incident to link it with the incident of being a victim of racism. All he tried to support the Black Lives Matters incident and his motive of banning the Confederate Flags at events.

The Wallace’s version of the incident has convinced the other racers to join in the virtue signaling parade to support him and fight against the racism.

But, later on FBI took the entire mater into their hands and ran an investigation. They finally found that no crime was committed there as garage pull had already been there before anyone had any idea that Wallace would use that particular garage stall.

The FBI said that it was a pull rope which had been placed there in October, long before the stall had been assigned to Wallace. The garage pull had been fashioned in the Noose shape but, it was definitely not a functioning one.

“The photo evidence I’ve seen and have in my possession [shows] it was a garage pull that was a noose. I don’t know when we’ll get to the point that we’ll release that image … It’s alerting and it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up,” Wallace said.

“It was definitely in the shape of a noose. It wasn’t a functioning noose,” Wallace said.

“This was obviously well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment,” NASCAR said, referring to Wallace’s car number. “We appreciate the FBI’s quick and thorough investigation and are thankful to learn that this was not an intentional, racist act against Bubba.”

Steve Phelps, the president of the NASCAR was the first person to report to Noose Incident to Wallace.

“I want to be clear about the 43 team,” Phelps added. “The 43 team had nothing to do with this. The evidence is very clear that the noose that was in that garage had been in the garage previously.”

After the Cheers of Boos, Wallace could not qualify for NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race, but he took the entire responsibility of this failure on himself.

“You get backlash every day,” Wallace said on CNN  within a  few hours after the FBI and NASCAR announced the findings of their investigation. “I’m used to it. It stings a little bit worse when they’re trying to test your character … and try to take something away from me that’s false.

“But the backlash will always be there. It doesn’t matter if we provide 100 percent facts and evidence, photo evidence. People are going to Photoshop it to make me look like the bad person. At the end of the day, I will always have haters. I will always have the motivators to go out there and to try to dethrone me from the pedestal that I am on.”

NASCAR said “he FBI has completed its investigation at Talladega Superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime. 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. This was obviously well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment.”

Regarding the same, FBI said : “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. The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019. Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week.”
