Noose Discovered at Sonoma Raceway

SONOMA, Calif. (AP) – A makeshift noose was found hanging from a tree at the Sonoma Raceway in California and officials said they are investigating the incident. Raceway President Steve Page said a “piece of twine tied in what appeared to be a noose” was found hanging from a tree Saturday behind a former administrative office. Page said the incident was under investigation by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department. Sonoma Raceway was closed over the weekend due the coronavirus pandemic. The discovery at Sonoma came before a noose was found in the garage of NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace on Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. Wallace is the only full-time Black driver in NASCAR.
