Racing Against the Odds: The Story of Wendell Scott, Stock Car Racing’s African-American Champion
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Wendell O. Scott made history as the only black driver to win a race in a NASCAR Grand National (now Spring Cup) division. Eric Velasquez’s illustrations and Carole Boston Weatherford’s rhythmic text illuminate the story of a man who worked full-time while racing on the side. A man who married, raised six children, and educated all of them.
