*So, we already know most of y’all don’t watch NASCAR … it’s historically been a white man’s sport. But one woman is changing the game in a major way.

Tia Norfleet is the first African American female in the league, and she’s about to scare off that hideous rebel flag for good … we hope.

She’s actually part of an installment to revitalize the NASCAR image. Over the past decade, diversity has been a priority. In an effort to push that agenda, Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson joined the committee as co-chair.

Tia is the daughter of Bobby Norfleet, a former NASCAR driver. She was first spotted at the age of 14 racing karts. Over the years she’s matured in her sport and is now moving on to the big leagues.
