Reply To: Candace, Meet Nascar


So much fail

“ The noose was found Sunday by a team member of Wallace’s. Wallace did not see the noose and only knew it existed when he was informed by NASCAR president Steve Phelps later that afternoon.”


“ NASCAR president Steve Phelps said in a phone call with reporters Tuesday evening that the sanctioning body was still investigating why the rope was tied into a noose in October. Phelps did not take questions from reporters and said NASCAR would do so at the conclusion of its investigation.

He did say that NASCAR did not have any regrets about handling the incident the way that it did. He referenced the rope as a “noose” on five separate occasions in his roughly five-minute remarks.

“I do want to make sure everyone understands that if given the evidence that we had was delivered to us on [Sunday] night or late [Sunday] afternoon, we would do the same thing,” Phelps said. “We would have done the same investigation. It was important for us to do. There is no place in our sport for this type of racism or hatred. It’s not part of who we are as a sport.

“I want to make sure that everyone understands that our portion of this with the FBI was something that was ‑‑ we were very cooperative, as you would expect. We provided them with roster information, photographic and video evidence that aided them in their conclusions.”
