In 2010, Darrell was selected as part of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity program and got his start in stock car racing at the regional touring level. At his first career start at Greenville Pickens Speedway at age 16, Darrell became the youngest and first African American to win a race in NASCAR K&N series history and in track history. He went on to earn 2010 NASCAR K&N Series East Rookie of the Year honors. By collecting several East Series victories, Darrell finished third and second, respectively, in East Series points the past two years.
Along the way, Darrell has garnered accolades and media attention, including being listed as one of five young drivers to watch in ESPN the Magazine’s special NEXT issue. Now a Drive for Diversity program alum, Darrell is charting is own course up the ranks of NASCAR as a development driver for Joe Gibbs Racing, who signed Darrell in 2009. Now with the support of one of the elite teams, and their manufacturer partner Toyota, Darrell has continued to fulfill his dreams. 2012 was another breakout year for Darrell as he drove in four NASCAR Nationwide Series races for Joe Gibb Racing and impressed all with three top-10 finishes in his first three starts and a pole in his fourth start. Darrell has a full-season campaign planned for 2013, racing the No. 54 Toyota Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series while maintaining his ties to Joe Gibbs Racing. His first season running all the races in one of NASCAR’s top national touring series represents a big next step in Darrell’s quest.
With his career taking hold in stock car racing, Darrell is positioned to break even more barriers in the sport.
