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.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I don’t think she got what it takes to be a NASCAR racer. She’s beautiful I think it would be a good idea if she will pursue a modeling career.

Maryeve Dufault only proves that what man can do, it can also do by woman no matter how dangerous it was. Well, just like you guys, I am also so impressed with this courageous woman and if by given a chance I would love to watch in person her next race.

Definitely the next Danica Patrick. More and more hot ladies are now joining to a man’s world. I see her videos on some car racing events, very impressive!

This is really a quite interesting story. I’m so curious on she become a race car driver and left her modeling career? Oh Hell! I don’t want to see her have a broken bones.

I really don’t get on how she choose to be a racing car driver instead. She is looks like a supermodel. I wonder who motivates her to get down dirty on the race track?

Accept the truth that lady racers can now handle this dangerous thing. By the way, Maryeve Default is one hot model, not literally. What I mean hot is she now has the career in racing, and I wouldn’t want to miss the upcoming NASCAR.

I have read about the car infographics about the skilled women driver. I’m really impressed with the number. And what’s more interesting was this beautiful model had decided to try this sportscar that require a lot of endurance. I would definitely watch her racing match.

This news is kind of interesting. I wonder on what makes her think about her passion on car racing? I mean she is already a supermodel that turns into a driver. How can it possibly be?
