NASCAR will try again to wave its green flag Monday at Talladega after the Geico 500 was postponed by inclement weather on Sunday.
Regardless of when the race begins, though, it will have a figurative cloud hanging over it. Black driver Bubba Wallace found a noose hanging in his garage stall not long after he’d pushed for the sport to ban Confederate flags from all events. NASCAR said it’s looking into the incident.
Ryan Blaney and Chase Elliott claimed the two races at Talladega last year. There have been six different winners in the past six events here.
