First Arab American Female Driver Makes History By Debuting in NASCAR Race

Toni Breidinger will make history by becoming the first-ever Arab American woman driver to participate in a NASCAR national series.
NASCAR announced the historic news in a press release on February 4, nine days before she made her debut at Daytona International Speedway.
The 21-year-old Breidinger raced in the 2021 stock car competition ARCA Menards Series and NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series.

This is what Breidinger said before the race:
“Daytona is going to be the biggest race of my career, but I’m ready for it. It’s going to be a competitive race, but I know that the Young’s Motorsports team will prepare me a fast race car and we can contend for a top-10 finish. That is our goal, a top-10 finish,”

The driver shared photos of preparing for the race on Instagram:

Although she placed 18th in the race, she shared on Instagram that her team and herself set two goals before the race: to finish the race and stay out of trouble. And they succeeded!
