NASCAR's O'Donnell Discusses Measured Approach To Adding Races Outside U.S.

IS PERCEPTION REALITY? NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Darrell Wallace Jr. appeared on FS1's "Crowd Goes Wild" last night and talked about the fans' perception of him as an African-American driver in a predominantly white sport. He said, “They see me as a driver, as how I want to be perceived. I like to say, once you close the shield on my helmet you don’t see who’s behind there, a man of color, you don’t know. They’re kind of getting tired of an African-American winning a race, it’s just another kid trying to come up through and that’s what I like. But I also like carrying the African-American race because there is no one there and it needs to change” (“Crowd Goes Wild,” FS1, 11/20).
