BHM Day 25: Shaunita Latrice “Tia” Norfleet


Tia Norfleet is the first and only black female to be licensed as a NASCAR driver. She’s the daughter of Bobby Norfleet, who was a pro racecar driver in the 1990s.

She became interested in driving at the age of five and by 14 had won thirty-seven of fifty-two amateur races.

In addition to races she’s also involved in her Atlanta, Georgia community where she works to expose people of color to the world of motorsports.
