On February 19, 2015, the General Assembly passed the Senate Resolution 275, a resolution Celebrating the life of Wendell Scott. The Resolution was introduced by Senator William M. Stanley and Lt . Governor Ralph Northam in Richmond, Va.
“His biggest obstacle was being a black man in a white man’s sport. He was blocked from some races, denied compensation at others and was sometimes run off the track because of his skin color. Scott never let this stop him,” said Stanley, (R) 20th District Franklin County
