Future of NASCAR

Up and coming driver Rajah Caruth, poses for a portrait before the Jeep Beach 175 for the ARCA Menards Series East at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna, Florida on February 8, 2021. Caruth, 19, is one of the only African American drivers competing in NASCAR’s top series, and is doing so while attending Winston-Salem State University, a historically Black university, studying motorsports management. In 2022 Caruth will have an opportunity to race in NACSAR’s Xfinity Series, only the eighth black driver in history to compete in a race.
