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).
