Yeah, I’d say that’s an appropriate reaction to have to allegations of a noose being found in the stall of a black driver.

We don’t know much about the alleged incident other than NASCAR has made it clear the responsible parties will be eliminated from the sport.

It’s been a rough 24 hours for the sport of NASCAR. First, some dummy flew a confederate flag over Talladega, and then a noose was reportedly found in Bubba Wallace’s stall.

It’s hard to think of how the day could have gone much worse.

Hopefully, NASCAR is able to quickly get to the bottom of this situation.
