NASCAR Driver Tia Norfleet

She’s 25 years old and is now the first African-American licensed female driver for NASCAR! This is a great accomplishment since Tia Norfleet herself realizes that most minorities don’t know that much if anything about race car driving . Tia says:

A lot of people don’t know anything about [race car driving], especially minorities, especially people of color. Because it is a predominately White sport — a predominately White male sport, at that — a lot of people just don’t know about it. Hopefully with seeing an example, that “hey, if she can do it, I can do it” hopefully that’s the kind of effect that will happen.

Now that she has been able to break down the initial barrier of being the first African American female driver, Tia plans to use her platform as a tool to bring more attention to the sport of race car driving within the Black community. We wish her the best in all her future endeavors! Read more here
