Noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall, NASCAR says
"Now? Mike Greenberg Bristol with you this morning. And as I said right off the top of the show, I would have loved to have started with any of those today, and we certainly will get to the mall, but we begin with an absolutely despicable story coming from the world of NASCAR. In this developing story, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's. Stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag NASCAR announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here. was there statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty three eighteen. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We have launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all while himself tweeted a statement last night, which read in. In part today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give enor- rely back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe. In Allah Marty Smith is covering this for us in the scene in Talladega. He joined us an hour ago. The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members saw it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, and they made the decision that they were going to remove this person from the sport as quickly and rapidly as possible. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in on this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. Again! That was Marty Smith with US earlier. Lebron James among many who posted messages about this. He tweeted sickening Wallace, my brother! No, you don't stand alone I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete, I just want to continue to say how proud I am of you for continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar. I salute you as well. Well Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell added. God help us the level of evil. It takes to do something like this is disgusting. This is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale. EARNHARDT Jr. tweeted simply a hope of a wins it tomorrow again. The race will be run today. It was delayed by weather yesterday, and as I bring Steven A. and Marcus into the conversation here I'll. Repeat that the area in which this was discovered, there were cameras all over it should be. Relatively easy investigation for the NASCAR officials to conduct, and we are standing by for any information live from Talladega Marty Smith will bring us anything as soon as there is any further news with that thought in mind, Stephen. We've not yet had a chance to say good morning to you I. I just want to give you the floor here. What are your feelings and thoughts as we see this story developed from last night? Well I. Mean I think that for me? Personally I'm a little bit different than the kind of sentiments that have been expressed by a lot of people, because obviously you find this reprehensible and disgusting, and it's incredibly sad, and we get all of that but there's a forgive the the figurative smirk that might end up covering my face or draping my face because to me. Me It's just folks displaying the ignorance, and the more they put it on display, the more it enlightens a lot of people in White. America about what Black America has been telling them about for so many years decades spanning centuries for crying out loud. This is not new. This is something that we've known existed for all time. This is something we know we'll continue to exist. And there is no way around it and so this there comes a point in time where you have to accept that reality one of the things that I would encourage everybody to go watch. If you get an opportunity, you can go on Netflix. You can watch that documentary thirteen by EVA do vernay along with others, sensational job of address mass incarceration in the United States, of America one of the things they highlighted. Is that under the Nixon? Administration where you're literally talking about you know White folks that are hippies and you associate them with marijuana and you associate black. Black folks with crack cocaine, and as a result of that will ultimately galvanize folks in your favor, because they'd be scared to death, and you'd be hearing words like law and order ad, nauseam that was in the sixties for crying out loud in two thousand and twenty, and we're hearing the same thing now. You just have to open your eyes. You have to pay attention to the parallels you have to. You have to pay attention to the correspondence. That's taking place right before your very eyes throughout history, we have had people that have been adroit at light laying low. Controlling the narrative, manipulating the narrative switching things to their favor, all in an effort to maintain or to retain power. It's something to kind of thing that has been taking place in. Usually they've been incredibly skilled at remaining in the dark and saying it's then it's not us, it's them. It's not us well guess what are coming to light more and more in this day and age I find that a cause for celebration, not a 'cause. You know to be saddened by anything. The I find these to be. Beautiful tops as difficult as it may be the fact that I nation appears to be becoming more enlightened than ever before and ultimately as a result. We're coming together. I find that to be a huge plus not a minus. If the ignorance has to show itself, and if the ignore, it has to showcase themselves in order for this to happen coming out of the dock to me. That's of course was celebration Marcus. Stephen. That's what I alluded to earlier man just come on out. Show us who you are, so we know how to deal with you and everybody. That's four. Right knows how to deal with you. Look listen, this is. There has been. We've been having this conversation for a long time. I mean we had this conversation we had. This conversation went capped kneeled about police brutality. We talked about racing all of them and man you. You look if you look around and social. There were people literally Oh twitter last night. Say A BUBBLE! Did this for attention? What what are you talking about like? It's not. It's not unfathomable that someone could do that. We sold Jesse's me. Make reference to that because people can conjure up things to create narratives to make people overreact. That's why saying earlier. Estimate I'm not doing this emotional. Rollercoaster I'm getting off of it right like I'm nuts and bolts to was going on. There is progress that needs to be made in this country I'm focusing on that progress that needs to be made. That's what bubble wireless is focused in on a by making his statements in Nascar. That's a lot of athletes are focused on a lot of people in society in general of focused on making sure that we draw a line between racist people and people that one good for everybody. That's the bottom line. Look for as much as this is egregious and the things that have transpired for low type. I grew up in the south light. It's not. An uncommon for me to see racist people are know what it looks like or even even be surprised or shocked about certain things that tend to happen. The bottom line is this. I'm often emotional roller coaster like if you racist just be that come out publicly and be that enlist separate that and you be a part of the minority port society that we want to get to, and we think we already are at so all of that being said I'm with Steve Day like in this bringing a lot of people to the light, and the hateful ones are fighting their battle because they see slipping away. Score you're not GonNa hear me say this very very often, but I wanNA give major major kudos to a Lotta. White folks out there in America because if it wasn't for them, protesting and marching with black individuals if it wasn't for them, you know engaging in the kind of of of you know resistance to whatever level of oppression we as black people have been feeling this nation I. Don't think some of these folks will. will be coming out I. mean listen the back. In the day. They used to wear the sheets and used to cover the identity and their faces that we didn't know who the hell they were by virtue of that now. Some black people, a lot of black people will tell you they exist in corporate America. They could be the very people that you're working for the very people that you're talking to I happen to be. Be Blessed we happen to be blessed to not certainly not have that at this company is because we've seen the actions on the part of our executives. And what have you over continuous basis? Elevated level of sensitivity that this place has shown throughout the years deserves to be commended. There's always work to do. There is no perfect place. Make no about it, but I'm incredibly proud to be a part of the Walt Disney and And specifically the ESPN family in that regard having set all of that I'm in the minority, because the reality is vast people, there's a vast number of people of African. American descent in the United States of America that feel subjugated I wouldn't go so far as to say enslaved, but feel subjugated by bosses in corporate America people that say all the right things when the cameras are rolling, but behind the scenes they engage. Eight your and the conduct. Subjugation that they devote their voiceless. They don't have a voice in that regard, green. Marcus knows exactly what I'm talking about. And so because of that because of these times that we're living, what we're seeing is a populous within the United States of America that sees the dramatic shift, and there's so appalled, and and put and taken aback by what they see transpiring that they can't hide their vitriol. They're coming out of the dock because they're being forced out of the dog. We as black people. People have to appreciate the fact that couldn't happen without a vast number of white individuals in our society standing with us and saying you know what we see where the hell you coming from. If we didn't see it before we see it now, and we're with you, so you have that other segment of the population saying wait a minute we lose some of our own here. Some of our own alternative guests and the poor in this noxious. We gotTA speak up and as a result. Of the dock again I find that a cause for celebration doesn't bother me at all. If we wore, we wore. Let's get it on. I liked that. I want to leave it there for the moment again. Marty Smith is standing by Talladega. If there is any further information on the investigation, we will have it for you immediately, meanwhile, Steven as going to stay with us here for a few more minutes, and we'll get some football conversation as we go his feelings about the Dallas, cowboys have been well documented. This should be a very big day in Dallas. We will talk about it and why and then Lebron and other NBA players have until Wednesday to decide whether or not they're going to play. What should we expect? Woge will answer that question as we continue this out. GET THEM ON ESPN. GEICO. GETS YOU ACCESS TO LICENSED AGENTS? Twenty four

"Didn't get a lot of practice in so my cave. You want me to suck this. I'm going to need to like be able to practice and So I started calling all the manufacturers that make us different rigs but we were two weeks behind. Because you know we we just behind instead of people that already dot up all their inventory. How the Larson's home? The everybody in their brother had bought out everybody systems and so.

And he's like well just dinner. Sow Sledge's welded chassis. And we'll see we'll just do it ourselves and All easier said than done but yeah the front row is my my thirty four crew. Did build a chassis and We got everything set up and right before everything got shut down. We were able to get to my house and finished building a house worth realign the glitches and things like that but by Friday of last week I had one set of her house and was able to practice a little bit more and we ran. Texas stood in. Now that I've had more time hopefully run better bristol than I did it Texas so but yeah really thankful that they're able to do that and one of my house mall shut up and so however long. I'm stuck here I'll be able to drive another funny thing that you tweeted was when it came to Texas. You said well if I flip virtually it won't hurt and I appreciate it the humor in that but it made me think. Obviously that was a moment. Many people will always remember. Is it something that fans still ask you about? Oh yeah all the time. Yeah I mean it's for sure it's something that fans remember and Yeah it's just one of those moments that I think that you know I certainly won't forget and and most people that watch during that time or were there don't and you know it doesn't bother me either. It's not like there's like two sides of it is one is it doesn't make. It's not embarrassing for you know. It's not something that I'm like. I don't WanNa talk about because if you raise long enough you're gonNA crash in a normal. You don't do it by yourself but it happens and the other side of it is that you know to me to be able to walk away from it and to still be here whatever. It is thirteen years racing. doesn't define my career either right like if I'd be everybody's highlight but I lost thirteen years after that off of being able to do my job well and get the most out of whatever situation I've been in so doesn't like haunt me or or make me feel embarrassed about it or or I don't WanNa talk about it right. Yeah it's good. You just take it in stride right. Yeah Yeah all right Michael. Let me get you out of here. One last question circling back around to our real racing when we get back on track whenever that may be do you know when I don't I wish I did. In my optimism. Optimism balloon has been popped really. Yeah so when we get back to racing when you go from competing for a couple of weeks competing for a month and then you have an unexpected hiatus. Do you think you'll have like some rust to knock off or will it just be like kind of coming out of the off season? What what do you expect? The feeling will be like when we go back racing after an unexpected and an undetermined amount of time. Unlike where when you have an off weekend or you have off season. You know you can prepare you know when you're going to be racing again. How different will it be to jump back in a car after something like this? Well I want to answer that question. Nearly so our sport definitely has a lot of confidence in him as a big equation and that happens throughout the season. Good race last. Wants to change all those all those things get better salts. Rust Call Rust. I think that we've lost along with them. That feel that you want to build up on those things asked Palestine and go into the off season and you start fresh. But I don't think you'll be rusty. I mean we we go the you know the entire off season and are able to to turn on the light switch and go so. I don't feel like it will be a lot of just getting the skewed that there's a lot of CEO and just not just communication and just flow of practice and everybody will have to work through that again. You know but yeah yeah same for everybody and so we'll see. Who Does the best? It's GONNA be interesting isn't it? We're all going to be Ready to go back racing and it's just going to be interesting when we finally get to do it. Absolutely well Michael. I appreciate the time today. I've enjoyed our chat and good luck with the virtual learning and I hope everybody stays station. Thank you all right as I wrap up this episode.

"Race. So for anyone that doesn't know it's gopro motor plex here mooresville, it's probably the coolest go kart track ever go to in your life. It's outdoor goes about sixty miles per hour for rental kart. So it's not just like a, a Branson tourist trap, go kart track where you're going five miles per hour around, and you can go with your grandma. This place is super fast just marks actually owns it with Michael McDowell and, and such all racing people involved in this thing. So every year it used to just be like. They got together just just off access drivers. If you are paint jobs. He gets to be entered into this race just a thank you basically, for any guys that were home it. So we read the whole track out, and it's gotten bigger and bigger every year last year we started donating all the money to charity. We don't we don't make a dime off this thing this year, we got century on boats that came on board. And we actually are going to give back to pass the handle wake for warriors. It's a it's a deal that they deal with veterans and stuff like that. So anything you can do to have fun and to give back like this is a win for me. So it's August nineteenth anybody's in town in mooresville. It's the Monday after the Bristol night race. So come out hang is free to get in free food, and I think we have one hundred drivers signed up this year. So any any NASCAR guys pick, guys. It's, it's a pretty cool place to see drivers up close and not have media or credentials. You have to get into it's, it's everyone's just they're hanging out and everyone wants to win this trophy that, that Corey legit builds every year. Always fabricates thing it looks awesome. Everytime. I've seen it and you know what? I know a final post actually has off axis helmet that he wears a lot of the times would that.

"And we talked a little bit about MAC Benedetto. Michael McDowell and Ryan Preece another guy that really had a good run. I mean, you look at ultimately where these guys finished not necessarily as well as they ran. But I tell you these guys they got some attention, Tom. Oh, yeah. Ryan priests. It only run five races in the Cup series before his best finish was thirty second and Ross Chastain who finished tenth. This was his first top ten, and I believe thirty seven starts these guys. Now granted they benefited because a lot of the top cars were knocked out fifteen twenty cars that didn't finish. So that helped them, but you know, they deserve all the kudos in particular ran well all night. He was up near the front. Most of the evening. You know, it was funny. On TV. They ask him about it. And he said, well, I got an education today. These boys handed me my lunch. And I'm thinking that guy finishes eighth in that race. He did pretty darn well, well his point. I think when I went back, and I look at some of the footage. Yeah. There were some times right here at and he actually gave Joel llegado that one shot got him on up there really in contention. But he also when he lost Joey he opened the door and left too much separation between Joey and the rest of the field. Never able to kind of put him back in the middle and gambling little drop kick what he was referring to he's needed to hang with Joey and follow him up three there. And he didn't do that. So again that education was immense. Here's another kid. We don't want to overlook. Ty Dillon any six and especially since Germain made the move up to welcome North Carolina to get closer to our CR, which is basically there. Home base and their their their partner and not to mention Richard children's whose grandson, Ty Dillon driving that number thirteen. So it's good to see these younger kids getting at least in you know, a boost in there. Confidence morning thing else as we get ready to go into a pretty tough race track this upcoming week because you got really deep program and reprogram for what they're going to experience Atlanta. And if the weather keeps them off the racetrack, it may be a more challenge because you you'll be getting a surprise because this new package, you're not going to be ready for it. So the ones that didn't go to Vegas. It may be like, oh, we missed the setup for these guys. I mean, obviously financially running well get into good pay day. Daytona is huge the exposure. They got. You know, MAC to Benedetto ran up front a lot during the day. Michael McDowell ran up front a lot during the day. They got some good exposure. But I also think he gets them competence not only for themselves but for their teams moving forward. Who can to can take this time. Do you think and and use it? Best use it as a kind of a boost going forward best. Or can. I all I think that's hard to say. Because Daytona and Talladega are so different than anywhere else. It's not like you're going from from Bristol one week to Richmond the next week or martinsville. It's not like you're going to be running on similar tracks. I I've always said it takes about six races before we really know where everybody is that. And I think I'm very impressed with Ryan priests. I'll be interested to see what he can do and he certainly acquitted himself well on the modified in this race. I don't I don't think you can draw too many conclusions from this race. When you look at guys like Kyle Larson and Jimmy Johnson. They finished in the top ten their cars. Look like they'd been run over by steamroller, and he's still finished here. So so hard to predict what might happen. I agree with you. But also, I love it. When I see a guy like Ryan Preece show me. He's got some natural instincts through those crashes. I mean, it'd be so easy to overreact. Touched a bright turn the wheel. But he holds true wheel didn't touch the bright, and it gets through to very horrific. Could it took him right out of the play crashes? So he showed me he's got great instrument it regret instincts. And I think when I look at these drivers you mentioned Ross Chastain. Here's a guy that has got a bulldog type attitude when it comes to drive it gave me an opportunity, and I'll show you I can wheel something he was right on the verge of getting into a first-class riding extremely series. It went away. Did it deter? You know, it made him more intense more fierce than ever before he goes out. He put together, you know, three rise for the weekend. And he did solid. He did a solid effort. Everyone to be able to come through the Daytona five. Five hundred with a fifteenth place finish. I think it gives a lot of Carlin was a moment to pause and think maybe. Maybe I need to Scott driving for me. So I think everybody that we kind of touched on and I don't want to miss Parker, Clermont either. Here's a guy who barely made it into the five hundred had a racist way in. But yet he comes out here with a solid finish basically underfunded team. So. I said at the very beginning of the show. It was a field speed weeks. And we keep going deeper and deeper in the field. We keep finding these kind of stories, and like you've alluded to you, don't write these scripts. They just happen. Leach weaken. The O'Reilly auto parts reports to give you a chance to go to go PRN dot com. Vote in our poll in this week's question is who most impressed you at Daytona? And we're going to go with MAC Di Benedetto, Michael McDowell Ryan priest or tied Dylan's who most impressed. You among that foursome last week? We ask you is Hendrik back in championship form after their performance in the in the clashes that were calling still clash shootout. Yeah. Yeah. Whatever. Forty seven percents said it's way too early thirty seven percents it. Absolutely. And sixteen percent said not yet when we come back. We're just a couple of weeks removed from the hall of fame induction ceremonies and Tom Jensen. Of course, works for the hall of fame now, and he's got a couple of stories for the hall of fame. Inductions he's going to share with us. We get Jeff's thoughts on the new hall of fame class to stay with us. Have you written a book and wanna get published then call Page Publishing a sap?

"And their tracks that are tracks that they that they should be going to and heck you wanna shake up the schedule go to gateway this year Dogo the year after that. And then go back to your after that. So the fans really want it back, you know, rotate races cut down the schedule do one only one at any given track. And then rotate them out sometimes change things up then people are going to want to come out because they don't know if they're gonna get it again, and they'll get real excited about it. Yeah. I mean. You have to make people want it, and you and you can't keep going to the same thing all the time and people take it for granted. The only way you're gonna expand. Nascar's if you put it in different tracks, you put it in different areas. But at different times of the year, they say they to be like other sports every other major sticking ball sport has expansion. Why did have expansion give different cities teams move to different cities? Why they wanna get new fans in different cities. So I also think one of the things here sorry to cut you off though is is that you look at talk about the expansion deal and stuff like that. I mean, people just get sick of it. Now, it's not fun anymore. And we have to trace back what killed the fun. What killed NASCAR? What did kill the funding NASCAR? I'm not quite or that. That's something. We should do in the off season doing investigative report. Come how things dropped off so heavily. Yeah. I don't know if they're actually. Is anything different in terms of the drivers in the tracks? Or if it's just, you know, the conglomeration of all these rules coming together in these more and more ridiculous efforts to have the the magic bullet. That's save the sport, and it all just kind of seems like terribly gimmicky, and it makes you not wanna watch anymore. Type of thing. I don't know. I don't know what the real interest. We should talk about that in the off season. Yeah. Not gonna have anything else to do sponsorship. Exactly. And as we can see from this week show. There's not a lot of news talk about on a weekly basis. So let's let's move on to some of the drivers stuff. David Ragan, by the way. He said last week that he fully expects to be back with front row next year.
