Wendell Scott, NASCAR’s First Black Driver’s Story Shared As NFT


To honor Wendell Scott’s life and work, Wendell Scott Ventures will launch and sell a series of historic NFTs.

He became the first African American NASCAR driver to win a Grand National race, which is the sport’s highest level. Wendell Scott did this on December 1, 1963.

As of October 4, 2021, no other black driver has won a NASCAR race. In the history of NASCAR, Wendell Scott is the only owner of a NASCAR team who is black. Even though Wendell Scott won, he didn’t get a trophy for it. It wasn’t until Aug. 28, 2021, more than 60 years after his victory in Jacksonville, that his trophy was given to his family after he died.

The first-ever NFTs of an African American NASCAR driver was sold at a live auction hosted by Authentik Studios at the National NASCAR Hall of Fame. The collaboration with Worldwide XR, VueXR, and CMG Worldwide will continue on March 6th with the premier NFT marketplace Nifty Gateway.

Wendell Scott is still breaking barriers 100 years after he was born and 58 years after he won the NASCAR race. His legacy is now linked to the technology that is changing how people interact with the world around them. NFTs are a good way to tell Wendell Scott’s story because, like Wendell Scott, NFTs make people angry but also set the stage for change in a broken system. As with NFT and Web 3.0, Scott’s impact on NASCAR’s status quo and the sport’s accessibility made it more open and more accessible. As history is made, people who own these NFTs have the chance to be a part of it, too.

These are the first NFTs of a NASCAR driver who is African American. They were made with the help of a top digital agency, Vue XR, and Wendell Scott Ventures, which is a joint venture between Lion Forge Films, which won an Academy Award for Hair Love, Polarity, a top black-owned entertainment company, and Scott 34 Racing.

3D Augmented Reality digital cars will be the first thing Nifty will be putting on its platform. This is the first time this has happened. A 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air that Wendell Scott won the NASCAR race in is the first of its kind. It’s an exact 1:1 copy of Scott’s first-ever NASCAR winner. The Extended Reality (XR) version of Scott’s car, like how the blockchain lets people work on a decentralized system, frees it from the NASCAR Hall of Fame and lets the public see it. This object can also be used in Metaverse apps.
Owners will also get SILO from Authentik Studios based on the NFT they buy.
