The untold truth of Bubba Wallace's girlfriend

NASCAR has launched an investigation after somebody hung a noose in the garage stall of driver Bubba Wallace at Talladega over the weekend.

Given that the Black Lives Matter motion sparked protests across the nation, Wallace rallied to have the Confederate Flag banned from the venues and occasions - and NASCAR took action.

James wanted to let Wallace know that he is not alone in this fight against racism while also commending NASCAR for taking the issue seriously.

Among those supporting Wallace on Monday was 82-year-old NASCAR legend Richard Petty, who made the decision to attend his first race since the coronavirus shutdown in order to stand alongside his driver. Many others in the sports community came to show their support for Wallace.

The drivers pushed Wallace's auto to the front of the field moments before the race got underway.

Despite NASCAR's ruling, outside the Alabama track on Sunday there were still plenty of Confederate flags flying and merchandise for sale. 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.

"[We] will do everything we can to identify the person responsible and eliminate them from the sport", NASCAR said in a statement. "We are angry and outraged and can not state strongly enough how seriously we take this heinous act".

"We offer our thanks to NASCAR, Mr. Wallace, and everyone who cooperated with this investigation", the statement said. "I am so incredibly proud of this man for standing up and helping to push real change!"

"As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism in NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all".
