Mike Fulp, the owner of 311 Speedway, a half-mile dirt track in Stokes County, has been going through complete hell over a terrible post that he made on Facebook marketplace one day after the noose found in Bubba Wallace’s garage stall was ruled to have been there since 2019.
The North Carolina racetrack owner is dealing with backlash as he recently stated he is facing death threats and seen his workforce and sponsorships dwindle.
“I’ve lost all but two of my sponsors,” Fulp told the News & Record. “I’m responsible. I’m responsible for trying to make some jokes. But the world is mad as hell right now.”
Even his family has faced the threats as well.
“I received death threats this week, all week long,” Fulp said. “People called and left messages, threatening me, threatening my mama, threatening my granddaughter. My girlfriend got threats. My employees got harassed. I had seven employees quit.”
Fulp told the newspaper that he canceled Saturday’s “Stand for America” promotion and racing event for safety reasons.
Fulp broke down in tears as he insisted he was “not a racist” and meant no harm.
