Tia Norfleet Black Nascar driver

SUFFOLK, Va. — Addicted to speed, Tia Norfleet is set on becoming the first African-American female to compete in NASCAR.

The DAILYMAIL REPORTS:

Her father, Bobby Norfleet, was a protege of African-American NASCAR driver Wendell Scott and has spent most of his career racing in motorcycles, drag cars and stock cars.

Mr Norfleet told Reuters: ‘I have been racing for all of her life and Tia decided a long time ago as a small child that she wanted to race’.

Ms. Norfleet says that although she loves racing, her principle objective is to inspire other young women to follow their own dreams.
