Darrell Wallace Jr. Speaking FeeIt was an emotional victory for NASCAR Driver Darrell Wallace Jr. as he made NASCAR history as he became the second African-American driver to win a NASCAR national series race. Wallace, a graduate of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity program that was formed in 2004 to help multicultural and female drivers advance from the grassroots series, led the final 50 laps of Saturday’s Kroger 200 Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway in becoming the first black winner in one of NASCAR’s national series since Wendell Scott’s Dec. 1, 1963 win at Jacksonville, Fla.

“I want to be a role model and inspiration to the younger kids and just change the sport as a whole and for the better, and winning helps everything,” Wallace, 20, said. “I think that’ll help kind of pave its own way there and hopefully get my name out there even more. That’s what I’ve been trying to do is to get my name out there to keep pushing (and) striving for kids younger than me to get in the sport.”

The Mobile, Ala., native is in his rookie season driving the No. 54 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports on the truck circuit and is the fourth African-American to drive full time in one of NASCAR’s top three national series, joining Scott, Willy T. Ribbs and Bill Lester.
