Women in Motorsports is a collaboration between WIMNA (Women in Motorsports North America). Motor sport events, in which women could compete, have existed since 1897 at the first known women’s motorized tricycle race. There is a long history of women in motorsports, and this exhibition focuses on well-known women racers, as well as up-and-coming regional women racers. It steps through the various race series, featuring race cars from the NHRA JD, Drag Racing League, U.S. Legend Cars, SCCA, IMSA, American Sprint Car Series, NHRA Top Fuel, and Indy Car Series.
