SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – After a noose was found hanging in the garage of NASCAR racer Bubba Wallace’s garage, fellow drivers pushed his car to the starting line as a show of support before the race at Talladega.

Wallace was a driving force behind getting NASCAR to ban use of the Confederate Flag. He is NASCAR’s only full-time Black driver.

The FBI is investigating the incident.

Wallace was visibly emotional during the show of solidarity from fellow drivers.
