Black Entrepreneurs, Superstars

Demarkus Wheeler

Entrepreneur, Race Car Driver & Chef

As part of our relationship with Richard Petty Motorsports, we are doing a series called “Putting Black Entrepreneurs In the Driver’s Seat” – where we feature Black entrepreneurs who have benefited from the Black Entrepreneur Initiative. This will be a series of zoom interviews with Erik Jones (the driver) and a Black entrepreneur.

Meet Demarkus Wheeler – a young man breaking ground despite his past. He is a race car driver, chef, and thriving business owner. He serves food to the very police officers that were involved in his felony.
