155. 'seekthetruth', get ready to "change my tune"

Back in the '50s when NASCAR first began, there was Wendell

Scott, a black man, who raced quite often in the Grand National

Division (what is now the Cup Division) He died several years


But if you really want to 'see' a black NASCAR driver, I have a

surprise for you...THERE IS ONE!

Bill Lester drives in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Bill

drives the #22 Toyota for Bill Davis Racing... The past two years he

drove a Dodge in the same series for Bobby Hamilton.

If you are really interested in watching Bill Lester race, the

Truck series will be in Hampton, GA, March 13, at 1:pm.. If you can't

get tickets (hehehehe), the race will be televised on Speed Channel.

BTW, many teams (Cup included) are seeking sponsors, including

Bill Davis Racing. I noticed that there was a 'dust up' among the

'fans' because the Rev. Jesse Jackson 'skook down' the France family

for a quarter of a mill last year, and I also noticed that he is NOT

'sponsoring' a local, grass roots, black driver or black team owner.
