Voices From the Heartland: Former Diversity Driver Wants “NASCAR Cash” One Way or Another

Former Drive for Diversity driver, Jesus Hernandez has probably given up on his dream of making it to NASCAR’s big leagues. if not, he should.

This last week, Hernandez, whose most recent job was a test team mechanic (kind of like being a prestigious member of an NFL ‘practice squad’) for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing, filed a wrongful termination suit against EGR. In his suit, Hernandez claims he was fired after he threatened to go to OSHA about working conditions at an EGR test tunnel. Hernandez seems to think that the tunnel does not have adequate ventilation and claims he suffered symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning.
