Daniels, 24, entered the NASCAR Rev Racing Drive for Diversity Pit Crew program last year. The former athlete for Norfolk State University, says that when she tried out she didn’t know exactly what she was getting herself into. But after training for 9 months it was time to make history and she was ready.
