Time to Move On – NASCAR Noose Not

Time to Move On – NASCAR Noose Not

Nothing to See Here!!!

NASCAR statement on FBI investigation at Talladega Superspeedway

“The 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. We appreciate the FBI’s quick and thorough investigation and are thankful to learn that this was not an intentional, racist act against Bubba. We remain steadfast in our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all who love racing.”

Time to Move On – #NASCAR Noose Not

Like I said in my end of last blog post on this subject:

Nevertheless, let us/NASCAR not go overboard and find the boogey man in every nook and cranny. Let the official investigation provide the truth.

It is over . . . . nothing racist or implicit happened in the #43 stall at Talladega.

While this writer is a tad disappointed at NASCAR Driver, Bubba Wallace prance response to the welcome news that this “NASCAR Noose” debacle was merely a mistake and rush to judgement; his team owner quickly reminds us why he is NASCAR’s king.

We, (all us NASCAR Fans) are all thankful for the swift and thorough investigation by NASCAR and all of the authorities involved. Nothing to see here . . . . time to move on and hopefully treat this incident as a reminder that rush to judgements oft times end in unexpected negative consequences. Next time, mayhap it would be prudent to wait until after investigations are concluded before going public.

Now Let’s go Racing!!!
