According to a now concluded FBI investigation the noose had been in garage number 4 since 2019. Which only had been assigned to Bubba Wallace, the only full-time black driver in NASCAR, last week. US attorney Jay E Town and FBI special agent in charge Johnnie Sharp Jr have announced in a statement that "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". NASCAR itself stated that they are "thankful to learn that this was not an intentional, racist act against Bubba".
