Willy T. Ribbs: ‘Now That NASCAR Has Taken a Step, They Better Keep on Stepping’

Former racer Willy T. Ribbs, the first Black driver to race in the Indianapolis 500, has a message for NASCAR in the wake of the announcement that it is banning the Confederate flag at its events.

“Now that NASCAR has taken a step,” Ribbs told our friends at Autoweek, “they better keep on stepping. This ride that we’re on now is not going to be over for a while.”

And when it comes to those who need to keep stepping in the march for improved race relations and an end to racism, that goes for Richard Petty.

And Jimmie Johnson.

And all the “listeners” out there.
