Bill asked the audience throughout the entire show how they feel about the season coming back…At the end of the show yesterday, we learned that the FBI had concluded that the noose in Bubba Wallace’s garage was not a hate crime. Despite the fact that this was their conclusion, there was still a noose in the garage regardless. We got Bill’s thoughts on the incident, what negative’s and positive’s came of it, and much more. We were joined by Jeff Striegle from the Michigan Racing Network, who was actually in Talladega when the event occurred.
