Danville looks to honor racing legend Wendell Scott
DANVILLE, Va. (AP) — The Danville City Council is set to consider a proposal to put new road signs honoring former local NASCAR driving legend.
The Danville Register & Bee reports that the Wendell Scott Foundation plans to present a petition to city officials Tuesday at a meeting on new highway signs.
Wendell Scott, who died in 1990, was the first African-American driver to be elected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
The foundation wants new signs honoring Scott on roads leading into the city. The city has previously named a street in his honor.
