THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING JESSE IWUJI
Jesse Iwuji is a U.S. Navy Reserve officer and former college football player who currently competes part-time driving the No. 34 Chevrolet Camaro in NASCAR’s Xfinity Series (NASCAR’s second tier).
In college, Iwuji played free safety for the U.S. Naval Academy. In August 2020, he made his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut, and a year later partnered with Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith to start an Xfinity Series team — Jesse Iwuji Motorsports.
Today on the podcast, we talk to Jesse Iwuji about being the only driver currently in NASCAR that is also serving his country as a U.S. military member. We also dive deep into Jesse’s faith, why the Bible applies to all of us, and the prayer book his mom had when he was a kid.
