    That's a fucking noose.

    Why the fuck didn't they release that earlier? NASCAR is tripping over itself once again, and in the process it is absolutely isolating and abandoning Bubba Wallace no matter what lame platitudes it offers.

    Only a casual NASCAR watcher, but I keep thinking this is the sport that likes to throw "competition cautions" and routinely finds "debris on the track" with 10 laps to go. Is a coverup that surprising?

    I am breathless seeing that.

    What do you guys think happened?

    I'm Googling shit about knots and hangman knots and there are knots in fishing that look like the one in the stall.

    It still doesn't explain why it was the one garage in all of Nascar with that knot.

    If it’s true it’s been there since some time last year, I’m guessing someone got bored in the garage and started fiddling with the rope and fashioned a noose — thinking nothing of it at the time. The rope/noose sits on the ground looking more like spaghetti than anything else for eight or so months. And from there, it’s the ending of a Seinfeld show where everything leads up to a big coincidence.

    I do not consider this incident funny, like a television program.

    Yep. I could tie this one in a cave, blindfolded, at night, in my sleep.

    That really isn't much of an exaggeration. My near vision is shit. I can see a spot on the horizon like it's nothing. I can barely read a text on my iWatch without my glasses.
    I actually practice tying that knot with my eyes closed so I can do it while fishing without having a pull glasses out of my tackle bag.

    It wasn’t my intention to imply humor, far from it, just how coincidental it could’ve been.

    Here's the question: In the era of the Trumpandemic, wouldn't NASCAR have to send people into each garage area to inspect and disinfect as never before in advance of the race? If so, how did nobody notice this and point it out to the authorities before anybody else arrived? I'm not saying people saw it and happily ignored it. I'm just baffled as to how it went unreported.

    That is a very good point.

    If they didn’t open the garage door, the rope is just on the ground in a mess. Probably wasn’t even seen.
