More than 200 minority and female drivers applied to be part of the 2011 Drive for Diversity class. Thirty-six of those applicants were invited to try out at the Drive for Diversity Combine presented by Sunoco this past October at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, Va. Drivers were selected by Revolution Racing and NASCAR officials based on their on-track performance and off-track interviews. This year's class represents drivers from across North America. Six drivers will return from 2010.

Mackena Bell of Carson City, Nev., returns to the Drive for Diversity program for a second season, and will race in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. In 2010, three of her five starts in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series were top-five finishes, while her best finish came on Aug. 20 when she was second.

Jessica Brunelli of Hayward, Calif., will race in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Her 2010 season included six top-five and 10 top-10s. She returns to the Drive for Diversity program for a second season.

Tayla Orleans of Randleman, N.C., will race in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. From age 7, she recorded 31 victories and 92 top-fives in her first 120 races.
