Minority Driver Sued NASCAR for Discrimination
NASCAR’s (National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing) Drive for Diversity program has aimed to bring minority drivers into the fast paced world of stock car racing by holding combines since 2004. There are currently six drivers under the program racing in various NASCAR regional series with hopes of expanding that number in future years.1 The number of minority drivers in the program is expected to expand in future years. However, the program has recently come under intense scrutiny due to a lawsuit filed by a former combine participant.
