NASCAR Legend Scott Recognized At Martinsville Speedway

Wendell Scott's family was on hand at the Martinsville Speedway Saturday for the recognition of a new state historical marker issued by the Virginia Department of Historic Recourses.

Scott was a Danville native and is the only African American to ever win a race in NASCARS top series.

More impressively he did it all on a shoe string budget during a time where racial tensions where high in the racing world, especially in the south.

Scotts family hopes this will be a stepping stone to get Wendell in the NASCAR Hall Of Fame.
