Congrats goes out to Nicole Lyons who went from drag racing to NASCAR as the only African-American woman driver!

Nicole has kicked off her NHRA Division 2 Top Sportsman race season this past weekend at the Orlando Speed World Dragway. Lyons finished 3rd in points, and is well
positioned in the top three slots going into Gainesville Raceway on February
17-19th. Lyon’s race successes were also featured this past week by renowned
news anchor Brian Williams on NBC’s Nightly News. Lyon’s segment focused on her
being a history maker as the only female racer in NHRA D2 and D7 Top Sportsman
and soon to be the first African American female to race in NASCAR in 2012-2013.
I met Nicole earlier this year while shooting at Usher’s New Look World Leadership Conference as she served as a panelist opening day… encouraging the youth to follow their dreams. She waited patiently as I struggled to get my shutter button to work. LOL, I was so embarrased… but she just smiled. Thanks Nicole. 🙂

As you can see… Nicole is beautiful inside and out. We are rooting for you!
