Bubba Wallace first black driver in 58 years to win NASCAR Cup Series

Alabama-born Bubba Wallace became the first black driver since 1963 to win a NASCAR Cup Series race. The racer accomplished the feat in a race affected by rain and had to be cut short due to inclement weather. The African-American last winner of the NASCAR Cup Series Wendell Scott accomplished the feat 58 years ago. Basketball Hall-of-Famer Michael Jordan owns the car in which Bubba participated in the race.

This is for all those kids out there who want to have an opportunity in whatever they want to achieve and be the best at what they want to do. You've always got to stick true to your path and not let the nonsense get to you. Stay strong. Stay humble. Stay hungry. There have been plenty of times when I wanted to give up. And you surround yourself with the right people, and it's moments like this that you appreciate.
