Brothas Gonna Work It Out
Congrats to Antron Brown. This past weekend he made history becoming the first (not first Black, but first period) driver in National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) history to win races in both the Pro Stock Motorcycle and Top Fuel divisions. Meaning dude has won races on both a motorcycle and in a hot rod.
As many speeding tickets black folks get, I always wondered why there aren't more of us interested in auto racing as a sport, let alone actually being involved in it. A couple of years ago I got the chance to actually sit in a NASCAR car with it going at top speed around Atlanta Motor Speeedway. GAAAAAHHHHHHAAAAAAAWWWWWWT DAAAAYUUUM! That shit was fun. Better than any roller coaster I've ever been on.
Anyways, here's a website on dude. Sounds like we're going to be hearing more of him in the future.
