Letter: It’s about racing ability, not race

Regarding the newspaper articles this week about Darrell “Bubba” Wallace, I believe amounts to racism by NASCAR.

NASCAR seems to be trying too hard to bring about ‘“Drive for Diversity” among race-car drivers.

To me, less was said about Daniel Alejandro Suárez Garza and his career than “Bubba” Wallace.

Richard Petty Motorsports, I believe, picked Wallace for his driving ability and not for his color.

To me “Bubba” Wallace is an up-and-coming talented driver. Being a black race driver should make no difference; his talent should be the difference.
