Today I'd like to acknowledge Martin Luther King Jr. Day... As most folks who follow drag racing are already aware, out of all the different forms of motorsports, it is drag racing that is the most inclusive and "color-blind" when it comes to both participants and fans. Our sport has a long history of competitive Afro-Americans making a name for themselves in various racing classes and categories. I believe that's something we should all be proud of. Here's just a partial list of racers that I can name off the top of my head--  Malcolm Durham, Antron Brown, Larry Edwards, Tim Wood, "Big Willie" Robinson, Levi Holmes, Rufus "Brooklyn Heavy" Boyd, and Ronald Lyles-- and there's many, many more than that... Here at Drag Racing Underground we collectively celebrate Dr. King's legacy and all the Afro-American racers who help make drag racing the most diverse of all motorsports...

 

We celebrate and acknowledge the fact that drag racing is the most color-blind of all the major motorsports.
