Had a tough day at work? #Navy Lieutenant Commander Jesse Iwuji competed as a professional athlete WHILE STILL ON ACTIVE DUTY in the Navy. Now that's a different kind of work ethic! Today, Jesse is the only current driver at the national levels of #NASCAR that has ever served in uniform (and still does!) AND one of only two African-American drivers in all of NASCAR. We sat down with Jesse to talk about competing, race in America, and how his Naval service helped him get to where he is today.
