Charlotte Motor Speedway Drops Green Flag on 'Women in Racing' Showcase At Pennzoil AutoFair
Celebrating outrageous vehicles and the women who drive them, tributes to some of racing's most legendary female speed demons and upcoming stars will be on display at the Pennzoil AutoFair presented by Advance Auto Parts at Charlotte Motor Speedway, April 6-9.
Speed machines ranging from Danica Patrick's race-leading 2005 IndyCar to a mammoth 1,800 horsepower 1972 International Pro Stock pulling tractor will make a statement at the Pennzoil AutoFair.
Also on display will be female motor sports icon Janet Guthrie's 1976 IndyCar, Danica Patrick's NASCAR stock car, AMA Amateur National Motocross Champion Jordan Jarvis' motocross bike, Angie Smith's NHRA Pro Stock motorcycle, a 2016 NHRA Pro Fuel Harley motorcycle, and young Macey Causey's Whelen Modified car. Each car holds a different life story that makes up these legendary women's careers in racing. Almost every aspect of racing is represented honoring the ladies that have shaped the future of motorsports.
But the cars won't be the only stars of the show, as Smith and Karsyn Elledge, granddaughter on NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Earnhardt, will make appearances and visit with fans throughout the weekend as well.
