219. Darrell Wallace makes history as first African-American to win NASCAR Pro Series
Darrell Wallace Jr. made his debut in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East a memorable one.
Wallace pulled away from the field on a green-white-checkered finish at Greenville Pickens Speedway to take the victory on Saturday night. He is the youngest driver and first African-American to win in series history. He gave Drive for Diversity its first East victory and third overall in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series.
We were solid all day from practice to qualifying. Everything, Wallace said. I cant thank the guys from Revolution Racing enough. They worked their tails off to get this car ready for this race.
Wallace led three times for 22 laps. At 16 years, 5 months, 19 days, Wallace eclipsed the mark set by Brett Moffitt (16 years, 9 months, 27 days) when he won at South Boston (Va.) Speedway last season.
Fellow rookie Andrew Smith finished second, followed by Jody Lavender and rookies Cole Whitt and Ryan Gifford. Gifford is Wallaces teammate with Revolution Racing, the four-car operation for Drive for Diversity.
