Men’s grooming brand Old Spice and Overtime have partnered to bring the story of one black driver to life as he competes against systemic racism to overcome all odds. “RACE,” an 8-part docuseries about Hayden Swank.
Why This Matters: NASCAR has had very little representation from anyone of color since the sport was founded in 1947. In the top three divisions of NASCAR, there are over 100 full-time competitors. Only one is Black. Over the past six decades, there have been over 2,600 races in NASCAR’s top series. Of those race winners, only 1 of them is Black.
The series will premier this Thursday April, 29th with new episodes being released every Thursday via Overtime’s YouTube channel.
