Meet The First (And Only) African-American Woman To Own A NASCAR Team

"Melissa Harville-Lebron, a 47-year-old single mother raising her three biological children as well as her siblings' four kids, started her career in the entertainment industry as an intern at Sony Music," Black Enterprise reports.

"In 2005, she launched her own music label while working for New York City's Department of Correction office. Nearly a decade later, she suffered from a severe asthma attack that forced her into early retirement and inspired her to take the risk of launching a multifaceted entertainment company, W.M. Stone Enterprises Inc., in 2014.

"She created E2 Northeast Motorsports under the umbrella of W.M. Stone Enterprises, Inc. The E2 Northeast Motorsports team became the first multicultural team to race competitively in NASCAR, with four black and Latino drivers - two in the camping world truck series and two in NASCAR's Whelen All-American Series. Two of the drivers are brothers and Harville-Lebron's sons, Eric and Enico."

Here's Harville-Lebron on Sway in the Morning this week:
