There’s no denying that motorsports is still a male-dominated sport, but over the past few years, we’ve seen a number of skilled and able women drivers participate in varying levels of competitive racing. And while some have been more successful than others, the growing number of lady racers has become a fresh of breath air on a sport that has long been considered a "man’s league".
From the Danica Patricks to the Jodie Kidds and the Susie Stoddarts, there’s no shortage of talent for the fairer sex when it comes to sitting behind the wheel of a racer and going bumper-to-bumper with some of the best male racers in the world. With all these names already in the fold, we come to Maryeve Dufault, an up-and-coming racer that’s scheduled to make her NASCAR debut in the NAPA Auto Parts 200 on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal this weekend. Though not as popular as some of her veteran contemporaries, the Quebec-born Dufault has exhibited great skills as a race car driver through her stint in the ARCA feeder series. But more than her talents on the track, Dufault has also been turning heads recently because, in so many words, she’s hot. As in really, really hot. As in model-caliber hot with a list of credits to her name, including a stint with the New York Euphoria team in the Lingerie Bowl and on The Price is Right.
We don’t know exactly how Dufault’s going to do in her baptism of fire in the world of NASCAR, but we certainly wouldn’t mind seeing her in action behind the wheel of a stock car or, you know, that whole modeling thing she does.
