Teen Makes History as 4th Black NASCAR Driver

Darrell Wallace, Jr.

Darrell Wallace Jr., is set to make history as only the fourth Black driver with a full-time ride in a NASCAR series.

Wallace takes the wheel for the Truck Series race Friday at Daytona International Speedway. He is signed with Joe Gibbs Racing and will drive the No. 54 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

Wallace joins Wendell Scott, Willy T. Ribbs and Bill Lester as the only full-time Black drivers in the 65-year history of NASCAR. Scott, one of the original pioneers, is the only Black driver to win a race.
