A lot happened back in 2020, but most of it was downplayed due to the fact that a certain sickness infected the entire world and distracted us all from everything else in the world.
One of the things that took place that year was NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace alleging that someone hung a noose inside of a garage. Since he’s a black man, it must have been a hate crime and someone was trying to imply that they didn’t want him around.
As it turns out, this Bubba Wallace event turned out to be nothing special because it wasn’t a noose, it was simply a pull rope inside of a garage that belonged to him. After getting the FBI involved in the incident, they released the following statement:
“The FBI learned that garage 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019.”
Well, he’s back in the news again after he lost his cool on another driver during a race.
According to CBS News,
Bubba Wallace and Kyle Larson were involved in a heated confrontation at Las Vegas Motor Speedway during Sunday’s South Point 400, with Wallace losing his temper after Larson ran him into the wall leading to Wallace wrecking Larson. The two then got into a shoving match in the infield.
Coming off Turn 4, Larson ran Wallace up the track and into the wall, a move Wallace responded to by hooking a left into Larson’s right rear fender, crashing them both as well as playoff contender Christopher Bell.
Still not satisfied, Wallace walked toward Larson’s car as Larson climbed out in the infield, confronting him and shoving him several times while Larson tried to walk away. The situation was eventually de-escalated by NASCAR officials.
The crazy thing is that this guy was so butt hurt over getting hit into the wall, that he decided to end his entire race by retaliating. He didn’t need to end his own race, but instead chose to end it out of anger.
Kyle Larson hits Bubba Wallace.

Bubba has been criticized for the temper tantrum, even by a black-oriented magazine which called him “dangerous”, “unprofessional”, and an “a-hole”.
