Job Outlook
In the 1950s and 1960s, NASCAR racing was almost exclusively populated by White males. The lone exception -- at least on the driver side -- was Wendell Scott, one of the stars of early NASCAR and the only black driver to ever win a NASCAR Grand National (Nextel Cup) event.

In the 1970s and 1980s, there was Sam Belnavis, Willy T. Ribbs and Thee Dixon, who made strides in creating at least the idea of a diversity program in what was once the last bastion of "redneck" America.

In the past several seasons, Bill Lester has competed in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck and Busch Series, and he's had quite a bit of success.

Through their efforts, and through the efforts of the sanctioning body and select teams, diversity is a word that is getting quite a bit of play now that the clock has ticked over a new millennium.

In May of 2004, NASCAR officials announced the sanctioning body had formed an Executive Steering Committee for Diversity, and that it had retained Earvin "Magic" Johnson as co-chair along with NASCAR Chief Operating Officer George Pyne. It was the first step in putting more minorities into the grass-roots levels of NASCAR, with the hope of grooming young men and women of color for rides in NASCAR's top level, the Nextel Cup Series.

Johnson, an icon in the world of sports and owner of Magic Johnson Enterprises, is tasked with assisting in the creation of programs like Drive for Diversity, which finds and develops black, Hispanic and female drivers and crew members. Perhaps most important, Johnson will help NASCAR develop marketing programs that connect to urban youth. His business empire, which includes Johnson Development Corporation and Magic Johnson Entertainment, is geared toward exactly that market.

Johnson is not the first stick-and-ball player to venture into NASCAR. Baseball Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson and basketball legend Julius Erving have taken a shot at NASCAR, with limited success. Why is Johnson better suited to help the diversity message? As he himself told The Sporting News, "I'm different from both guys. I've got a company that's already employing 10,000 minorities. Second, I speak to these groups of people every day with my businesses. I live in urban America. They trust me."

Johnson's involvement seems to have helped, as well as NASCAR's commitment to the program. In addition to NASCAR, teams like Joe Gibbs Racing, Richard Childress Racing, Hendrick Motor Sports and Evernham Motor Sports have bought into the program in a big way.

Gibbs, with the help of NFL legend Reggie White, is entering into the second season of his diversity program with drivers Chris Bristol and Aric Almirola in the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series.

Childress scooped up IRL star Sarah Fisher for his diversity team, in addition to Allison Duncan, giving him a pair of female racers to develop.

Evernham chose Tommy Lane, who spent 2004 as a member of the Drive for Diversity pit crew contingent (sign man for HT Motorsports), a driver for one of his late models and went with Erin Crocker, the lone female to win a World of Outlaws sprint car feature in a combined stock car/open wheel program.

Hendrick plucked 15-year-old Chase Austin out of Kansas for his ASA Late Model Series program.

Other drivers, like Bruce Driver, Reggie Primus and Joe Henderson III, are benefiting from teams like SCORE Motorsports, Innovative Motorsports and Bobby Hamilton Racing.

That's a huge increase in a single season, but it's important to remember that drivers are not, despite the inevitable comparisons, a cash crop, so to speak. It takes time to "grow" the program, and likewise it takes time to mold new drivers.

One of the driver development directors for a major NASCAR team said that the number of teams in racing now has seriously thinned the talent pool of available drivers, and that teams now have to "grow our own." This is where the influx of minority drivers will begin to show themselves, and it is as good a learning tool as baseball's minor-league system or the college ranks in basketball and football.

Other programs in the Drive for Diversity include an internship program, funding for scholarships to traditionally black and Hispanic colleges, universities and serving institutions, support of the NASCAR College Tour and support of the Urban Youth Racing School based in Philadelphia.

"They're trying to do the right thing and I want to be a part of it," said Johnson.

Reggie White, who died tragically on last Christmas at the age of 43, was instrumental in forming the Gibbs diversity program. White, who had always wanted to be involved in NASCAR, approached Gibbs and proposed an alliance. Gibbs, who was on the board of directors for NASCAR's diversity program, said he would fund the team out of his own pocket. With Bristol and Almirola, the team won four races total last year against some pretty tough late model competition, and the team has been moved into the same building as Gibbs' Busch Series operation. One team official said the development team worked for crew members as well as drivers. "It's almost like our Class A ball club," he said.

While NASCAR's Diversity program is just in its second year, there have already been tangible results among minority communities. According to an independent poll released in 2002, both black and Hispanic fan interest in the sport has grown 25 to 40 percent since 1995 -- and that's just the beginning.

One of the keys to the success of the diversity program thus far is corporate America. Major corporations with their own diversity programs have jumped in with financial support, including Kodak, Centrix, Domino's Pizza, Home Depot, MBNA and many more.

Diversity, in years not so far past, was not a word one associated with stock car racing. But as the corporate nature of the sport continued to grow and companies made more and more of an investment into it, diversity was a natural extension.

Waste Management, which is an official sponsor of NASCAR, is a prime mover in diversity, given that its workforce is predominantly black and Hispanic. The company will sponsor Matt Kenseth in a number of Busch Series races this year and is an associate sponsor on several Roush Racing cars.

There's more to be done, certainly, in NASCAR's drive for diversity, but it's off to a good start. When, sometime in the not-too-distant future, a person of color gets to Victory Lane again, we will look back upon 2004-05 as the time when it all started to come together.
