Time for a quick look at the ladies that will be taking part in Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway. There will be several lady drivers in the garage area and on the track for both NASCAR and the ARCA Racing Series. It should be noted that a few favorite female drivers are missing from the entry lists so far including Johanna Long and Milka Duno as of this writing. Here's a quick look at the female side of racing for Speedweeks 2014. Talent, skills, and they make race car driving fire suits look awesome.
Pictured above - Maryeve Dufault has competed in both ARCA and NASCAR and hopes to build on her presence in the garage. In 2011 she qualified on her first attempt at Daytona for her first ARCA race and her maiden oval race in life! Maryeve garnered remarkable success during her rookie season in the ARCA series, where she collected six top 13 finishes, one top 10 and won two Hard Charger Awards.
Jennifer Jo Cobb
Cobb is set to run the entire 2014 schedule in the Camping World Truck Series this year with a beefed up sponsorship group including the Used Truck Association (UTA), Wreaths Across America and Fans4Truckers to honor Arlington Cemetery's 150th Anniversary with a "Remember Them All" kickoff. JJCR will also have co-primary sponsorship from Tyler, Texas-based Grimes Irrigation & Construction, Inc. With a surge of new sponsorship and returning support from Koma Unwind, Arrow Truck Sales, Horejsi Graphics and Waldo's Paint Supply Co., the team is slated to compete in all 22 race events on the schedule. Crew Chief, Steve Kuykendall will lead the team.
Munter combines her love of racing with her love for the environment. The driver is well known for her sponsorship's from eco friendly companies and organizations. This season she will open her 2014 racing schedule driving for one of the best race teams in the sport. Munter enters Daytona under the Venturini Motorsports banner.
Everyone knows about Danica Patrick. The longtime driver in both Open wheel, ARCA and NASCAR will be back at Daytona for both the Nationwide Series as well as the Sprint Cup running of the Daytona 500. The good news is that she will be joined by the above listed ladies. Every year the number of female drivers in the sport increases which means the all of you parents with daughters who want to be race car drivers... your daughter could win the Big Race! It's only a matter of time and how cool is that!
