Noose reported in black NASCAR driver's automotive garage stall proved to be nothing more than a rope loop for pulling down the overhead garage door. Same type of rope loop is present in every other stall / bay.
More than just a suspected hate crime, it was heavily under investigation:
"In addition, the US Attorney’s office for the Northern District of Alabama, FBI and the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division are reviewing the incident"
