    Wendell Scott was the first African American inducted in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Throughout the 1960s and 70s, he poured his heart, soul, and all of his earnings into maintaining his own race car. His son, Frank, remembers what it took for his father to cross the finish line at racetracks throughout the South.
