I’m not a racing fan, but this 30-year-old woman who stands 5′ 2″ deserves attention and applause. She made $12 million in 2011 in a sport dominated by men. According to Wikipedia, she was born in Beloit, Wisconsin and raised in Roscoe, Illinois. She dropped out of high school and later earned her GED.
On Saturday, she’ll be leading from the start.
