By Tanya Harris
Tia Norfleet, the only African American female professional race car driver on the NASCAR circuit and daughter of famous auto racer Bobby Norfleet, made a special guest appearance at the 5th Annual Route 66 Historic Car Show presented by Lawndale Christian Development Corporation.
Norfleet, 25, has been licensed to race since 2010, but has been surrounded by cars and part of the racing world all her life with her famous father, auto racer Bobby Norfleet. She talked about her struggle to attract sponsors because of her refusal to sign with an alcoholic beverage company.
Tia spent the day talking with children and local residents about her life and career, accompanied by her proud father.
