Speedway loses partnerships after Bubba rope post
PINE HALL, N.C. A North Carolina racetrack has lost some partnerships after its owner advertised Bubba Rope for sale online days after NASCAR said a noose had been found in the garage stall of Bubba Wallace, the top series only Black driver. A concrete company and a driver series ended their partnerships Friday with the half-mile, dirt track 311 Speedway in Stokes County, the Winston-Salem Journal reported. The racetrack owner's Bubba Rope post on Facebook Marketplace earlier this week sparked a backlash on social media and a condemnation from a spokesman for Gov. Buy your Bubba Rope today for only $9.99 each, they come with a lifetime warranty and work great," the post said. We do not condone nor support the comments and posts that have been made the past week, the series said in a post online.
