    African American NASCAR driver Darrell Wallace Jr. became the second black driver to win a national NASCAR competition when he took the cup at the Truck Series race this past Saturday. Wallace is the next winning black driver behind Wendell Scott, who made history as the first in 1963 – nearly fifty years ago.

    The twenty-year old driver from Mobile, Alabama who is sometimes called “Bubba,” took the track at Martinsville Speedway. Wallace is a graduate of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program. The program was founded in 2004 to build interest and opportunity among women and drivers of various cultures and races.
