A North Carolina racetrack lost some collaborations after its owner advertised “Bubba Rope” for online sale days after NASCAR stated that a loop had been found in the garage of Bubba Wallace, the only black driver in the higher series.
A concrete company and a series of drivers concluded their partnerships on Friday with the 311 Speedway 311 Speedway in Stokes County, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
BUBBA WALLACE KNOWS THE PHOTO “NOOSE” WILL NOT CHANGE THE MIND OF SKEPTICS
The track owner’s “Bubba Rope” post on the Facebook Marketplace earlier this week sparked a reaction on social media and the sentencing of a spokesman for Governor Roy Cooper.
“Buy your Bubba Rope today for only $ 9.99 each, they have a lifetime warranty and work great,”
The Carolina Sprint Tour posted on its Facebook page that it would not run on the freeway for the rest of its season, according to the newspaper.
“We do not condone nor support the comments and posts published last week,” the series said in an online post.
A concrete company also said it was cutting all ties with the speedway.

NASCAR officials released a photo Thursday of the rope found in Wallace’s garage stall Sunday that triggered a federal investigation, which determined it had been there since October. The accident occurred less than two weeks after NASCAR banned the Confederate flag from its locations and races at the urging of Wallace.
