A former racing official Mauricia Grant is suing NASCAR for $250 million, alleging racial and sexual discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful termination.
She said “I loved it. It was a great, exciting, adrenaline-filled job where I worked with fast cars and the best drivers in the world,”.“ But there was an ongoing daily pattern (of harassment). It was the nature of the people I worked with, the people who ran it, it trickled down from the top.
32-year-old Grant, who is black, worked as a technical inspector responsible for certifying cars in NASCAR’s second-tier Nationwide Series from January 2005 until her termination. In the lawsuit, she alleged she was referred to as “Nappy Headed Mo” and “Queen Sheba,” by workers.If you liked this post please buy me a cup of coffee to quench my thirst
