He's twenty years old and has broken through by accomplishing something that hasn't been done in fifty years. On October 26th, Darrell Wallace Jr. won the Nascar Camping World Truck Series Kroger 200 race at Martinsville, becoming the first African-American to win a Nascar series race since Wendell Scott in 1963.
At an early age, "Bubba" was a natural, so much so that he gave up other sports to focus on racing. Thanks to a solid family, Wallace was able to pursue racing at a high level, handling not just the competition, but adversity along the way.
Spend some time watching him drive and listening to him in interviews and it's evident that he has the poise and moxy to handle whatever comes at him around the next turn. Wallace not only made history at Martinsville, but also proved he is primed to shine on the big stage.
Here he is, Darrell Wallace Jr.
