First Black Nascar Winner Since 1963: Darrell Wallace Jr. won the Kroger 200 on Nascar's Camping World Truck Series Saturday, becoming the first black driver to win a Nascar race since 1963. Wallace, 20, was making his 19th start on the truck series the third-tier of Nascar. The only other black driver to win was Wendell Scott, who won on December 1, 1963, at a top-level race held at Speedway Park in Jacksonville. But racing officials announced white driver Buck Baker as the winner that night, only correcting it later, and he was never given the trophy.
