If you were a black female where is the first place you would be?

I wish her luck that could change the look of NASCAR and bring with it millions of fans that have never watch or been to a race track .The same happen with golf when Tiger first came on the circuit .

Don't forget Mr. Ashe.

But definitely the williams sisters brought a whole entire generation of fans to tennis. I'm one of those.

NASCAR NEEDS some women drivers. I hope she makes it into the top tier soon.

But 2 top 15s on short track isn't going to buy her a ride.

If this is what you really want to do then get to it. Things will be difficult but being successful at anything is never easy. Being African American only makes it that much harder. But victory from the journey will be something you can hold on to for the rest of your life and use to inspire others.

Not quite the same thing but, I remember when Shirley Muldowney first started drag racing in the '60s. None of them good ole boys wanted her on the track. Don Garlits was the first to endorse her and she is now in the record books and is considered to be one of the greatest drivers ever. Go for it.

What a shame. The first black female NASCAR driver, one day before "Judgement Day."

Beware the Rapture.

"Racial" comments is one thing.  "Racists" comments are another thing completely.  And there are many today!

She's black. That's how simple bigots are. Black subject = negative comments. It goes on all the time.

Those crackers will NEVER let you in, they won't even let a Black man in, as misogynistic as that sport is...nevermind a woman, Danica had big problems and she's white.. Good luck though , you'll need it.

I can't imagine the derision she receives in the pits at NASCAR. Pure conjecture I know, but seriously, c'mon, I don't believe that we are living in a "post-racial America" one iota.

They will over compensate and pretend that they are so incredibly open to the idea.

Realist you meant. Nascar already got sued by a black female who was harassed repeatedly. She reported it several times and nothing was done until she sued. That's the kind of culture that exist.

It's not like Nascar is known for being overly inclusive now is it?
