NASCAR’s 2021 Drive for Diversity Driver Development Class

NASCAR and Rev Racing have selected eight talented young drivers from various backgrounds for the newest class of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program.

The 2021 roster for the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program includes returning veterans, a rising iRacing competitor, two FB y BOHN Mikel’s Trucks drivers, and the 2020 World Series Dirt Nationals champion.

Nick Sanchez, Rajah Caruth, Isabella Robusto, Lavar Scott, and Regina Sirvent are Rev Racing veterans returning to the program in 2021. This season will mark the first year for drivers Justin Campbell, Andres Perez de Lara, and Jaiden Reyna.

“We are thrilled to welcome these accomplished drivers to our successful development program,” said Jusan Hamilton, NASCAR director, racing operations and event management. “We’re enthusiastic about their future and look forward to working with each driver as they advance their racing careers.”

The NASCAR Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program was created in 2004 to develop and train ethnically diverse and female drivers both on and off the track. NASCAR Cup Series drivers Bubba Wallace, Daniel Suárez, and Kyle Larson are alumni of this program operated by Rev Racing in Concord, NC.
