Women With Drive II Set For October

Concord, N.C. – The second annual Women With Drive II Summit is set for October 5-6 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The motorsport industry event will bring together the most successful and influential people in motorsports to discuss the current issues and needs to advance opportunities for a more diverse and inclusive environment to help grow the motorsports industry.

“WIMNA has invited an outstanding lineup of women and men in motorsports who share our brand’s passion for inclusion and a love of driving,” said Michelle Hassinger, North American OEM Marketing Manager for ExxonMobil, manufacturer of Mobil 1 – the world’s leading synthetic motor oil brand. “By ‘driving’ WWD II, our goal at Mobil 1 is to engage and energize the motorsports community that gathers to network at this world-class event.”

“We are thrilled to host the Women with Drive II – Driven by Mobil 1 Summit at Charlotte Motor Speedway and our The Speedway Club”, said Jessica Fickenscher, Chief Experience Officer of Speedway Motorsports. “We are honored to be part of an event that places importance on diversity and inclusion in motorsports as this continues to be a high priority for all of our premier entertainment facilities underneath the Speedway Motorsports umbrella.”

“I’m excited to gather successful people in motorsports who are passionate and care not only about their careers but also how they can help and welcome future generations to look at motorsports as a career,” said WWD II Co-Chair Lyn St. James. “Whether it’s encouraging STEM education or understanding how they’ve transferred their experience and skills to careers in motorsports, these women and men are in the trenches and willing to share how it happened for them and how it can happen for others.”

“WWD II – Driven by Mobil 1 includes networking, inspiring presentations from women and men in the motorsports industry, a ‘friend-raiser’ reception, a private tour of the Hendrick Heritage Center, and more, said WWD II Co-Chair Cindy Sisson. “The Keynotes and Panelist discussion will highlight stories that will explore, encourage, celebrate, and engage expanded opportunities for women and other diverse communities to become involved in motorsports.”
