A North Carolina racetrack received not only backlash but also some loss in partnerships when the owners tried to sell “Bubba Rope” online.
Last week, it was reported that someone left a noose in Bubba Wallace’s garage. However, after investigation, it was concluded that “the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose” was there since 2019.
After the investigation was over, the owner of the 311 Speedway advertised on social media for “Bubba rope”. His actions have led to “A concrete company and a driver series” ending their partnerships with the dirt track, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
The post read, “Buy your Bubba Rope today for only $9.99 each, they come with a lifetime warranty and work great”.
The Carolina Sprint Tour will move the races on 311 Speedway to other venues. Their Facebook post read:
“We do not condone nor support the comments and posts that have been made the past week. We will not put our sponsors, IMCA Racing, series, drivers, teams, owners, fans or families in a negative light such as what’s happened recently.”
Furthermore, Loflin Concrete of Kernersville cut all ties with 311 Speedway. Their statement on Facebook read:
“Standing for what you believe is often different than being known for what you are against. Sometimes just being against something in principle or belief is just not enough. Words must lead to action sometimes. This is one of those times. We have cut all ties with 311 speedway.”
