Darrell Wallace Jr.‘s historic win Saturday at Martinsville Speedway made national headlines as the first African-American driver to win a national NASCAR series event in more than 50 years. He’s been an emerging star in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this year and in other regional series before that.
Wallace joined NBCSN’s “SportsDash” on Monday to chat with Dave Briggs on the win and why NASCAR has struggled to attract and develop minority drivers.
