NASCAR'S Love for Bubba Wallace Speaks Louder Than Hate

NASCAR at it's finest. Whoever tried to hurt, intimidate and isolate Bubba Wallace, did the absolute opposite.

This past Sunday, Bubba Wallace (NASCAR'S only black full-time driver) discovered a noose in his garage stall. Bubba had been instrumental in convincing NASCAR to ban the confederate flag from races. Authorities are not sure who's responsible, but the FBI is working on the case. Whomever is responsible will be terminated and banned from NASCAR for life.

The following day, at the Geico 500 taking place at Talledega, Bubba Wallace received another message that spoke even louder than a cowardly act of hatred. Dozens of drivers and their crews walked behind as his #43 car was pushed to the starting line. 82-year-old Richard Petty joined the procession to support as well. That's called love and support.

And, that is the NASCAR family. United for life.
