It looks like the Bubba Wallace noose incident was an isolated one. Another noose was reportedly discovered at a NASCAR track this week.
Sonoma Raceway track president and general manager Steven Page gave the terrible news that a noose was found at his facility over the weekend. It was a piece of twine tied into a noose that was discovered tied to a tree on the property.
Page released a statement about the discovery on Tuesday.
“On Saturday, a Sonoma Raceway staff member discovered a piece of twine tied in what appeared to be a noose hanging from a tree on raceway property,” Page wrote in a release. “Our staff, on-site business tenants and local law enforcement have been contacted and asked to share any information they may have. The incident is under investigation by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department. Sonoma Raceway takes this incident very seriously and is dedicated to operating a facility that is welcoming to everyone.”
That noose was discovered around the same time a noose was discovered in Bubba Wallace’s garage at Talladega. Wallace was instrumental in the recent decision to ban the confederate flag from NASCAR events.
Sonoma Raceway is the annual host of the Toyota/Save Mart 350.
Local law enforcement officials have been contacted about the incident.
