Willy T. Ribbs is going back into retirement.
Ribbs, who became the first African-American to race in the Indianapolis 500 in 1991 and hadn't raced in an Indy car in 17 years, finished 13th out of 16 drivers in the Firestone Indy Lights event Sunday. Ribbs quit after 28 laps.
"I physically ran out of gas," said Ribbs, 56.
Sunday? As in yesterday? I don't think the season even starts until March…
ha ha he look like OJ in one of the pics but that is my opinion
How about some love for Wendell Scott on MLK Day? In 1963, at the height of the civil rights movement, he became the first black driver to win in NASCAR's top series.
