Noah Gragson, previously suspended from NASCAR for liking a controversial meme, has been hired by Stewart-Haas Racing to drive the No. 10 Ford in the Cup Series.

During his suspension, he underwent sensitivity training and sought professional help, leading to significant self-awareness and personal growth.

Gragson’s history, including his family background and his father’s legal issues, has also influenced his behavior. (Trending: New Movie Obamas Helped Make Raises Eyebrows: ‘Don’t Trust White People’)

“I was like, ‘Man, what’s going on? Like, is this real? Why is this happening?’” Gragson said.

“He said ‘Hey buddy, I’m going to tell you this because you’re like a little brother to me, but it’s time you grow up, and it’s time you take accountability and you allow yourself to take this opportunity to work on yourself and self reflect.’”

“It has brought a tremendous amount of self-awareness to myself, self-reflection, and ultimately it opened my eyes to the world and showed me I was a pretty selfish guy,” Gragson added.

“I’ve learned to pay more attention, be more present, enjoy the people I’m with. This has really been a rude awakening of all the work I needed to do on myself.”

Despite the challenges, he is now focused on self-improvement and is grateful for the opportunity to return to racing with a new perspective.

“Noah deserves to be in the NASCAR Cup Series,” Tony Stewart said.

“Noah has performed at every level where he’s competed and has regularly been in championship contention.”

“That’s the kind of driver we need at Stewart-Haas, and that’s why Noah is a part of our team.”

“It just takes becoming honest with myself. I don’t want to get into too much detail, but with that situation, it’s definitely something that I’ve become more honest with myself and accepting of the situation,” Gragson said.

“It’s how you adapt and how you overcome the adversity and challenges. I feel like I’m still trying to learn life and learn how to do the right things, and it’s been tough, to say the least.

“But right now I feel confident with myself in all avenues, including that one (with his father).”
