Making History: “Darrell Wallace Jr. Becomes the Second African American to Win a NASCAR National Touring Series”

Congratulations! Darrell Wallace Jr. became the second African American to win a NASCAR national touring series. It has been 50 years since Wendell Scott won in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Wallace stated, “This (win) means everything.” “This is an emotional win for me, especially doing it in Wendell Scott’s backyard. I love coming here to Martinsville, it’s always good to me. It finally paid off. I think it’s my third trip here. I love coming here, the fans are great here and we always put on great races. I had to do some muscling there at the end and get around Ty (Dillon) and keep away from (Kevin) Harvick, so we dodged a few bullets in the race and this is awesome.”I had so much confidence coming into this race, and I told my guys that I did, and I told everybody that asked if I was going to win I said, ‘Hell yeah’ every time.”
