All 40 Talladega drivers and their crews walked with NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace and helped push his car to the front of the field Monday afternoon after a noose was discovered in his garage stall over the weekend. Federal authorities are investigating the incident at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. Jay Stone, the U.S. attorney for the northern district of Alabama, said his office, the FBI, and the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division “are reviewing the situation... to determine whether there are violations of federal law. Regardless of whether federal charges can be brought, this type of action has no place in our society.” Wallace, who is the only Black driver in NASCAR’s Cup Series, has been outspoken in support of Black Lives Matter and the ban on Confederate flags. NASCAR says it will expel from the sport whoever placed the noose.
