NASCAR has confirmed that a noose was found in the garage stall of Bubba Wallace -- the only Black driver in NASCAR's top circuit.
Since the Black Lives Matter movement sparked protests across the nation, Wallace rallied to have the Confederate Flag banned from the venues and events -- and NASCAR took action.
But many NASCAR fans were unhappy about the banning of the flag. NASCAR said that they are launching an investigation into the noose incident.
"We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough how seriously we take this heinous act," NASCAR's statement read. "We have launched an immediate investigation, and will do everything we can to identify the person(s) responsible and eliminate them from the sport."
Wallace also issed a statement to his social media slamming the racist incident. He said that he is "incredibly saddened and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism."
