Wallace will drive the legendary No. 43 car for Richard Petty Motorsports next season — a tremendous honor … since that’s Petty’s car.
Gordon says it’s important to acknowledge the historical significance of having a black driver in the full-time circuit — but says the real focus should be on what he can do on the track.
Jeff also explains why he thinks there aren’t more black drivers in the sport — and how Wallace can help change that moving forward.
