Virginia native, Brehanna Daniels, is making history as the first Black woman to pit a vehicle in a national NASCAR series race. This news follows her milestone earlier this year when she became the first Black woman to go over the wall in a national race series.

 

“I got even more stares than I did at my ARCA races. I was like, wow, people really aren’t used to seeing a woman of my color in the sport! The stares came from fans and crew members. I saw people breaking their necks to turn around and look at me after I passed by. I got even more stares when I actually had on my fire suit.” – Brehanna Daniels

 

Daniels entered the NASCAR program in 2016, and is a former student athlete at Norfolk State University. She now has four races under her belt, with more to come.
