Yep that looks like a noose to me.
Despite it being a garage pull, it was still fashioned into a noose.
Maybe it was just a coincidence that he got that garage but I can absolutely understand why he’d be freaked out and upset. I’d be freaked out and upset.
Every garage bay has the same door 'pull', not just the one poor bubba was assigned.

"Phelps said Thursday that the sanctioning body has checked all 29 tracks where it has national series events and 1,684 garage stalls. Only 11 had knots in a pull-down rope and only one – the one at Talladega – had a knot shaped as a noose. He said he did not know if it was a functioning noose."

I didn’t feel like googling but that’s what I thought happened.

They just had a noose lying around for a year?

Who uses a rope to pull open a door instead of the door handle?
They're taller overhead doors, so they need something extending down off the handle to grab. It's the world's tiniest "noose". It's a type of knot that looks like a noose, and the loop is about the size of a hand. It's not anything big. It's a fishing knot actually, which doesn't tighten like a noose when pressure is applied. It stays stagnant, so it makes a good handle.

And yet only one out of over 1600 garage stall door had one. And have you seen the picture of it? It looks bigger than a hand. It looks like a noose. It is tied like a fishing uni-knot, also called a gallows knot.

I saw this ratchet woman yesterday, she is apologizing is .

No, it wasn’t stupid because it was a noose, it just wasn’t placed there for racist reasons.
I said it was stupid for people not to understand why people assumed it was a noose. It turned out it wasn't but some people are claiming it was stupid to assume it was a noose.
I know what you said and I was agreeing with you. It’s not a stupid assumption because it was a noose by definition. It just wasn’t used with racist intent apparently. I think people saying it was a stupid assumption doesn’t understand that.

But it wasn’t stupid for NASCAR or Wallace to assume it was. I would have been WTF about it too and wanted to confirm the reason why it was put there, especially with the current racial tensions and how heated people are about NASCAR’s decision to ban confederate flags.
Oh, ok. Sometimes my sentences are as clear as mud, I thought it might not make sense.

Especially when you see the picture Wellpreserved posted. It looked exactly like a noose. No surprise that was the first thing to come to mind.

That was a close up pic. You know angles and lenses can change something small into something big, don't you?

It seems to be at least as big or bigger as what looks to be the light or power switch on the wall to the right, which are usually about the size of a hand.

That is not big enough to fit a head through it.
