Darrell Wallace Jr. will become only the fourth black driver in the 64-year history of Nascar to race full-time in a national series when he competes in the Camping World Truck Series this season.
Darrell Wallace Jr. will become only the third black driver in the 65-year history of Nascar to secure a full-time ride in a national series when he competes in the Camping World Truck Series this season.
Wallace, 19, of Concord, N.C., will drive for Kyle Busch Motorsports, said a person with knowledge of the decision who is not authorized to discuss it publicly before a news conference scheduled for Saturday in Charlotte, N.C.
The truck series is two rungs below the premier Sprint Cup series. Wallace’s first truck race is Feb. 22 at Daytona International Speedway.
Although a handful of black drivers have competed in Nascar over the decades, only Wendell Scott, Willy T. Ribbs and Bill Lester have raced full-time in the sport. Scott ran from 1961 to 73 at the Cup level and is the only black driver to have won a race. Ribbs competed in the truck series in 2001. Lester raced in the truck series in the 2000s and started two Cup races in 2006. Lester is the only black driver to have raced in the Cup series since Ribbs competed in three races in 1986.
Trying to expand its appeal and fan base in recent years, Nascar has been working to develop minority and female drivers through its Drive for Diversity program. Wallace came up through the program and won six races in the lower-level K&N East Series from 2010 to 2012. He was signed by Joe Gibbs Racing, one of the top teams in the sport, and he competed in four Nationwide Series races last season. He had three top-10 finishes.
Busch, who will be the team owner for Wallace in the truck series, also races for Joe Gibbs Racing in the Cup series. He has owned a team in the truck series since 2010 and has posted 18 career victories, an indication that Wallace may have a competitive ride this season.
