After the FBI said that the noose found in his garage stall at Talladega had been there for months and that he was not the target of a hate crime, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace tells NBC News’ TODAY “I was relieved, just like many others, to know that it wasn’t targeted towards me,  but it’s still frustrating to know that people are always going to test you and always just going to try to debunk you.”

He added, “It was a rope pull for the garage door…but it was definitely in the shape of a noose. It wasn’t a functioning noose…The photo evidence that I’ve seen and that I have in my possession [shows] of what was in our garage is exactly a garage pull. It is. That is a noose. I don’t know when we’ll get to the point to release that image…It’s alerting and it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.”
