According to her website and several news stories, Tia Norfleet has an impressive racing resume, and is said to be the first African American women to compete in Nascar. However, it appears those claims may be exaggerated. The result has caused an uproar on her Facebook page between her supporters and detractors. Further clouding matters, Tia’s father Bobby, has in the past accused NASCAR of Racism for denying him the chance to race. For a sport hailing the achievements of Danica Patrick and desperately trying to promote diversity, could this incident hurt the progress NASCAR has slowly started to make on that front?
