DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- NASCAR's Drive for Diversity combine will take place next week at Langley Speedway in Hampton, Va.
Twenty-four aspiring drivers from ages 16-to-24 will vie for a spot with Revolution Racing in 2012. That will be the third season Revolution Racing will field teams in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and NASCAR Whelen All-American Series as part of the initiative.
On-track testing for the competitors will take place Oct. 19-20. Drive for Diversity driver Darrell Wallace Jr. became the first black winner in K&N Pro Series East history and its rookie of the year in 2010. Last year, Wallace and fellow Drive for Diversity competitor Sergio Pena each won three races.
