Wallace, NASCAR's only full-time black driver, successfully banned campaigning for the Confederate flag.

The flag has been a common sight on the NASCAR circuit, but for many it remains a symbol of slavery and racism.

In a statement, Nesker condemned the "heinous" act at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama.

"In the late afternoon, Nesker found out that a rope had been found in the Team 43 garage stand," the organization said.

We are angry and angry and cannot say seriously how seriously we take this heinous act. We have launched an immediate investigation and will try our best to identify those responsible and remove them from the game. ''

He said: "As we have disproportionately stated, there is no room for racism in NASCAR and this act only strengthens our determination to make the game open and welcome to all."

A 26-year-old Twitter statement described the incident as a "disgusting act of racism", leaving it "incredibly tragic".

I will not break with this. I will not give in or back, ”he said.

Earlier this month, NASCAR banned the Confederate flag from all races. This occurred amid global protests against the death of George Floyd while Minneapolis was in police custody.

Wallace called the flag a ban on racists where it became a common sight, particularly in the heart of the southern United States.

"Get them out of here. They have no place for them," he told CNN. "No one should feel uncomfortable when they race in the NASCAR. It starts with the Confederate flag."

However, before the Sunday race in Talladega, a small plane flew over the Tarmac with a Confederate flag and banner called "Defund Nascar".
