The noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall at Talladega Superspeedway was not the only one that appeared at a NASCAR racing facility over the weekend.
Sonoma Raceway track president and general manager Steven Page gave the news that a noose was found at his facility over the weekend. It was a piece of twine tied into a noose that was discovered tied to a tree on the property. Page released a statement about the discovery on Tuesday.
“On Saturday, a Sonoma Raceway staff member discovered a piece of twine tied in what appeared to be a noose hanging from a tree on raceway property,” Page wrote in a release. “Our staff, on-site business tenants and local law enforcement have been contacted and asked to share any information they may have. The incident is under investigation by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department. Sonoma Raceway takes this incident very seriously and is dedicated to operating a facility that is welcoming to everyone.”
That noose was discovered a day before the one that was discovered in Bubba Wallace's garage at Talladega. Wallace was instrumental in the recent decision to ban the confederate flag from NASCAR events.
