FBI concluded Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime

According to a statement from NASCAR:
“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.”

This comes a day after NASCAR drivers rallied and pushed Bubba Wallace to the starting line, prior to the Geico 500. More here: NASCAR Drivers Support Bubba Wallace After A Noose Is Found In His Garage
