(WFXR/AP) — NASCAR has released the photo of the noose found in Bubba Wallace’s Garage Stall.

On Sunday, June 21, the noose was found hanging in the garage stall of Black driver Bubba Wallace at the NASCAR race in Alabama. This came two weeks after Wallace advocated for NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag from its events and facilities.

The FBI investigated the incident after it was thought to be a hate crime directed towards Wallace. However, it was determined the noose was hung in October of last year.

In an interview with CNN, Wallace responded, “I wanted to make sure this wasn’t just a knot. It was a noose. Whether it was tied in 2019 … it is a noose.”

Following the incident, NASCAR rallied around Wallace in a demonstration on Monday.
