NASCAR Diversity Award recipient Macy Causey gets special honor

Macy Causey

NASCAR Diversity Award recipient Macy Causey was featured in the March issue of Sport Illustrated's Faces in the Crowd alongside other prominent athletes thanks to her running list of racing-related accolades. 

 

In April, the 15-year-old competed in her first race at Langley Speedway in the Late Model Division, becoming the youngest female to race at the .396-mile track. She has NASCAR in her blood, too -- her grandmother, Diane Teel, was the first woman to start a race in what is now the NASCAR XFINITY Series.

 

Causey then went on to receive the Langley Speedway Rookie of the Year honors. 

 

Her most recent accomplishment came in February when she was honored with the NASCAR Diversity Award's ninth annual Young Racer Award.
