On Sunday, NASCAR revealed that a noose was discovered in the garage stall of Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. and the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports team at Talladega Superspeedway. "We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough how seriously we take this heinous act," NASCAR said in a statement, according to USA Today. They also promised to investigate "do everything we can to identify the person(s) responsible and eliminate them from the sport." Wallace called the incident a "despicable act of racism." "As my mother told me today, 'They are just trying to scare you.' This will not break me, I will not give in nor will I back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe in," he tweeted. Wallace is the only Black driver in the Cup Series and called for the Confederate flag to be banned from NASCAR events, which was done on June 10. "Know you don't stand alone," tweeted LeBron James. On Sunday, some protesters showed up with Confederate flags outside the racetrack. A plane flew a banner of the flag alongside the phrase, "Defund NASCAR." The Cup Series race at Talladega was postponed until Monday because of weather.
