For Immediate Release: The NASCAR Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program along with its competition arm, Rev Racing, seeks to obtain the highest quality of applicants representing diverse backgrounds and develop them into successful NASCAR drivers. Drivers will have the opportunity to submit a digital application via our site, highlighting racing experience, references and historical success.
APPLICANTS MUST MEET THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS:
- Be a female or member of one or more of the following ethnic minority classifications: American Indian (must provide proof of a tribal card), Alaskan Native or of native/indigenous descent; Asian or Pacific Islander; Black or African-American; Latino or Hispanic
- Be at least 12 years of age but no older than 22 years of age as of October 1st of the present year
- Be legally eligible to work in the United States.

Applicants must also be able to obtain necessary authorization to accept employment in the United States if selected to participate in the Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program.
NASCAR Drive for Diversity aligns its drivers with a team of executives, athletic trainers, crew chiefs and mentors helping them achieve professional success, and thus improving their likelihood of reaching one of the three NASCAR national series. Selected drivers will compete in the ARCA Menards Series, NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series or Summer Shootout Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway as well as other select U.S. Legend Car races.
Note: Drivers selected to participate in testing/combine should be prepared to compete in go-karts, legend cars and/or late model stocks. Not all drivers selected will participate in all levels of racing. Testing and combine dates and location is TBD and will be decided following the close of applications. The application deadline will close on July 1, 2022.
