Darrell Wallace Jr.

The stock car driver has been pegged as NASCAR’s next prodigy. Already, Darrell Wallace Jr., 18, has won six races in the K&N Pro Series — the first African-American and youngest person to do so — and will make his first appearance in the NASCAR Nationwide Series on Sunday at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa.
