Driven by Diversity Podcast


Devon Rouse

Season 2, Ep. 6

With years of experience on his racing résumé in sprint cars and mod lites, Devon Rouse recently became the first openly gay driver get behind the wheel of an ARCA car and will also be running in the NASCAR Truck series this year. Brought into the world of racing by his father, this American racer talks us through his career to date. He is absolute in his affirmation that his sexuality does not define him nor his talent for racing, and hopes his story can help others who might find themselves in his shoes. Before we get into it, we want to say a big thank you to Racing Pride for linking us up with Devon!
