Women and Auto Racing
This is a brief guide to resources dealing with women in auto racing in a variety of roles: drivers, team owners, technical crew, media, and more. Emphasis is on stock car racing and on the holdings of the Stock Car Racing Collection in the Appalachian State University Library, but there are selected resources for women in other types of racing and suggestions for finding material in other libraries. Follow the tabs along the top of the page.
