NASCAR announced Sunday evening that a noose was found in the garage stall of Bubba Wallace, the stock-car racing circuit’s sole Black driver. “We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough how seriously we take this heinous act,” NASCAR said in a statement, adding that whoever is responsible will be banished from the sport. Wallace recently unveiled a Black Lives Matter car as protests over the death of George Floyd swept the nation, and he backed the belated ban on Confederate flags. In a tweet, he said the discovery of the noose at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama left him "incredibly saddened” but more determined to fight racism. “This will not break me, I will not give in nor will I back down,” he wrote.
