CTH: Earlier today President Trump drew attention to the purposeful fraud pushed by NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace. In interviews Mr. Wallace said: “a noose was placed in my garage” and “the noose was hanging over my car.” Both of those statements were false.
On June 25th NASCAR released a picture of the garage pull-down rope and knot that both they and Bubba Wallace described as a “noose hanging over the car“.
Except it clearly was not hanging over the car, and it clearly wasn’t a “noose” or it wouldn’t function to help pull the door down. Driver Bubba Wallace now calls it “a non-functioning noose.” Or, in simple terms, a garage pull-down rope with a loop-knot tied in the end.
However, what NASCAR did not realize was the picture they provided actually makes the situation worse; because the picture shows something else, something worse:
The picture was taken Sunday, in Bubba Wallace’s garage stall #4, when the race was cancelled due to inclement weather (rain and lightning). However, pay close attention to the partially visible uniform on the man standing at the left of the picture.
That person is a member of the Wood Brothers Race Team and this is a VERY important facet. The picture was taken Sunday, prior to the “noose” (hereafter called a knot) being cut down. According to a statement by the Wood Brothers team, they informed NASCAR officials the garage-pull in question was in place in 2019:
“One of our employees notified us yesterday … he recalled seeing a tied handle in the garage, from last fall. We immediately notified NASCAR and have assisted the investigation”. (link)
So that would explain why one of the Wood Brothers team was present on Sunday June 21st when the photograph was taken.
But here’s the problem…. If that picture was taken by NASCAR that means NASCAR was aware the knot in question was in place in 2019; and therefore knew Bubba Wallace was not the target…. and they would know this on Sunday; before they went out and made a big racial publicity stunt over it. read more
