Rajah Caruth joins Richard Petty on “Always Forward” – float that celebrates NASCAR’s 75th anniversary and the upcoming Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum.
“NASCAR’s 75th anniversary is all about honoring our past, celebrating our present and looking to our future,” said NASCAR Vice President of Marketing Services Patrick Rogers. “It’s only fitting that a driver like Rajah, who represents
NASCAR’s now and beyond, joins our all-time winningest driver on this historic day for our sport.”
Caruth, who started his driving career on a computer, certainly represents a modern-day NASCAR success story. The 20-year-old from Washington, D.C is a product from NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity Program at the age of 16. That led to real-life driving opportunities at Rev Racing, which fielded cars for Caruth at the grassroots level. He’s a student at Winston Salem State University.
“Always Forward,” won the award for Most Outstanding Depiction of National Treasures & Traditions as chosen in the 2023 Rose Parade on Monday in Pasadena, California.
