Hour 2

This hour we talk to the father and son owners of Miller Racing Group, about what it is like to be an African American team in a still predominately white sport. Leonard W. Miller was the first black auto racing team owner to enter the Indy 500 over thirty years ago. His son Leonard T. Miller has written a book about their experiences breaking through the color barrier of NASCAR called Racing While Black: How an African-American Stock Car Team Made its Mark on NASCAR.
