    Just to point out something about the idea that Wallace assigned the garage that the rope in question was seemingly tied to last year...

    Racing 101: How are garages, pit road spots assigned?
    Garage assignments are decided long before the first hauler arrives at Daytona International Speedway or any other track. They’re based on the driver’s point standings.

    “When the entry deadline passes for a race, we know who’s going to be there and we lay out the garage accordingly,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR’s senior vice president of racing operations.

    Ooooooh boy, this a bad take from Bernie's former National Press Secretary.

    As an aside, the MLB, NBA, racing, and now wrestling thread have been invaded by politics!

    On topic, I'm fairly sure the full FBI statement found it suspiciously timed but not necessarily a hate crime but reversed course a bit when videos from NASCAR went public, showing the same garage, noose knot free.

    Was Bubba even the one to report it? I thought it was one of his pit crew and NASCAR that reported it?

    From what I have read he didn't even see it, he was just reacting to what he had been told.

    That was the version of it that I heard.

    Just thinking through if it was a shady move someone orchestrated, it would seem that it absolutely would have hinged on breaking from the usual means of determining the garage a team wound up in. If that actually took place...

    - The media have completely missed it in their reporting.
    - The Feds completely missed it in their investigation.
    - Wallace's team(along with the other teams...) have not mentioned any anomaly in it.

    Jordan Weissmann of Slate made a similar point.
    I think the real issue is that there were people who received checks for their dead relatives, and wanted to be honest and return them. But they could never get a straight answer from the IRS on what to do, if they even able to get through to them. I saw a news report on this right after the first checks went out.

    I realize that the money had to go out fast, and there were mistakes made. But there should have been some process put in place to address this issue when they were getting ready to send the checks out.

    He's no fan of Bolton, and neither am I. But not for the reasons you'd think. Bolton is a coward and scum. I'll let the Legal Eagle lay out the case. He does a better job than I ever could. -

    An informative biopic video from 2018 made all the more interesting by recent events -

    Are you saying this is not a noose, Mets?
