“What’s the symbol of a noose? It’s death.” Wallace’s father argued.
Darrell Wallace also questioned why the “noose” at the end of the garage pull rope had been there for so long.

Per Inside Edition:
Bubba Wallace is speaking out in media interviews following the FBI’s determination that there was no hate crime committed after a noose was found hanging in Wallace’s garage.
“Whether tied in 2019 or whatever, it was a noose,” Wallace, one of only a handful of Black drivers in NASCAR history, said on CNN.
The FBI said the noose hanging in Wallace’s garage at Talladega Speedway was actually a garage pull that had been there for months, and Wallace was “not the target of a hate crime.”
