It has been an honor to see you grow up in NASCAR. Your journey from the Drive for Diversity program in 2010 to driving in the NASCAR Monster Energy Series to a second-place finish at the Daytona 500 is nothing short of impressive.
You have always been a pioneer, even in your introduction in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. You won your first race becoming the youngest driver to win at that track and in the series. In your rookie series, you became the first African-American driver to win in a national series since 1963 by winning the Camping World Truck Series Kroger 200 at Martinsville Speedway. Your talent was recognizable then and only continues to grow......
