BUBBA WALLACE got a HUGE show of support before the Geico 500 yesterday at Talladega, when dozens of drivers and their crews walked behind as his #43 car was pushed to the starting line.
82-year-old team owner RICHARD PETTY also joined the procession to support his driver.
On Sunday, someone put a noose in Wallace's garage stall. Wallace is NASCAR's only black full-time driver. He's the guy who recently convinced NASCAR to ban the confederate flag from its races.
NASCAR is going all-in on finding out who's responsible for the noose. They're even working with the FBI . . . and whoever did it will be banned FOR LIFE.
(Bubba came in 14th place, by the way. Ryan Blaney won.)
