Cambridge High School golf coach Brent Nottestad resigned Thursday after making a series of racist tweets towards an African American NASCAR driver, Cambridge News reported.

Nottestad directed the tweets at Darrel Wallace Jr., who is set to be the only full-time African American NASCAR driver at the moment.

According to Cambridge News, Nottestad tweeted, “Hey @BubbaWallace. Please quit with, ‘I’m black’ bs. You’re terrible. There are 1423 more credible drivers to get that ride than you.”

The number 1423 is often associated with the a white supremacist group called the Southern Brotherhood.

Wallace then tweeted, “Wow, I feel truly sorry for your kids. Again…to have so much hate towards somebody you’ve never met. Hope your kids grow up to be the exact opposite of a father you are…”

According to Cambridge Superintendent Bernie Nikolay, Nottestad’s resignation was effective immediately.
