The FBI ruled out a couple of days ago that the rope found in the garage of the team pilot’s black Bubba Wallace it were a racist attack, but the organization of the NASCAR does not share the conclusions of your research.

Steve Phelps, its president believes that the concern is legitimate well recognized that the garage of Wallace was the only rope tied in such a peculiar way in all of the garages of the teams, and the organization requested all circuits to seek if in their facilities, a rope tied this way, and it was not found any more.

For his part, the pilot Bubba Wallace said she feels grateful that a rope found in his garage at the Talladega Superspeedway was not intended for him, but does not believe that the subsequent research has been an exaggerated reaction .

Wallace, the only driver african-american full-time in the NASCAR series, has questioned whether “what We are hyper-sensitive to everything that is happening in the world right now? Absolutely.” In an interview with the chain of sports news ESPN, he added “But if you were in my shoes, and I doubt that someone can walk in my shoes, especially at this time, would you do it again and again”.

The team of Wallace noticed the rope just this weekend. “It was a kind of rope that served as a handle for the garage door that we were assigned in Talladega, but it was in the shape of a loop,” said Wallace. “David Cropps, a type that I will support in any trench, walked to the other side of the garages to make sure that I was not exaggerating, and when he saw that the other shooters garage were basically a rope strong without knots, and that the our had a knot in the shape of a rope, I think that yes, that requires an investigation”.

I don’t know if they did it with hate in the heart or as a joke , but it ended up being a malentendid,” he said.
