Chrissy Wallace - Hickory Motor Speedway Contender
Chrissy Wallace's racing background begins with her family. As the daughter to Mike Wallace, the successful NASCAR driver, and also the family member of Rusty, Kenny, and Steve Wallace, Chrissy has been strongly rooted in the racing culture right from birth. In 2007, she became the first female driver to get a victory at the Hickory Motor Speedway race in North Carolina.
Her NASCAR debut occurred in 2008 when she competed in their Craftsman Truck Series and finished in the 18th place. Since then, Wallace has managed to achieve other victories and record braking accomplishments, such as being the first woman to win an American Speed Association Late Model track championship at the Lebanon I-44 Speedway.
Natalie Decker - Rookie of the Year
Thanks to their Drive for Diversity program, in 2015, Natalie Decker joined NASCAR. She began at age 9 as an avid go-kart racer, and by age 11 she had already won 4 championships.

At the young age of 22, she is already shaping up to be a promising and award-winning racer and even has a much better record than her two cousins. Since then, Decker has participated in three ARCA races for Venturini Motorsports (Elko, Toledo, and Pocono), and finished eleventh on the lead lap.
Kim Crosby - Racing Principal
In 2004, Kim Crosby made perhaps one of the most impressive and amazing career changes, going from a full-time Louisiana school principal to a full-time NASCAR racer.

By age 55, she's been in ten races over the past three years, and her best finish was 72nd in a 2004 race.
Kim Crosby is quite an extraordinary woman and who has a lot of hobbies such as hunting, fishing, hiking, kayaking, and camping. She's undoubtedly the coolest school principal of all time if there ever was one. Crosby is currently semi-retired, but continues to race occasionally and plans to return to NASCAR.
