Watch 'My America With Elisabeth Hasselbeck': Can Darrell Wallace Race His Way to the Top?

As seen on Fox and Friends

This morning on Fox and Friends, we saw the premiere of Elisabeth Hasselbeck's feature series, "My America."

Aiming to explore stories that reveal who we are as a nation, Elisabeth kicked it off with a profile of rising NASCAR star Darrell Wallace Jr., who last October became the first African American in 50 years to win a NASCAR race.

Though it takes a ton of talent and hard work to make your way to the NASCAR level, Elisabeth explained that it also takes something else: money.

What was crucial for Wallace's development was the fact that his father owns an industrial cleaning company. The family estimates they spent over $1 million to support Wallace's racing dreams until he signed with Joe Gibbs Racing at age 16.

Watch the profile above and check back on Fox News Insider for information on the next installment of "My America With Elisabeth Hasselbeck."
