In the world of NASCAR, the likes of Danica Patrick has been a trailblazer for female drivers. Soon, people like Jennifer Jo Cobb, Natalie Decker, and Hailie Deegan also followed her example. However, NASCAR found another trailblazer in its midst, though she operates behind the scenes. That woman is Brehanna Daniels, who works as a pit crew member in the sport.
To make matters even better, she is also the first woman of color to be a NASCAR pit crew member. Speaking to TODAY, she said, “Wednesday morning, I woke up. God told me, ‘Brehanna, you have to go to this NASCAR tryout.’ I was like, ‘You know what? I don’t question that man upstairs.’”
