While You're in Daytona...Women in the Winner's Circle

The Daytona 500 Experience, billed as "The Official Attaction of NASCAR," teams up with Lyn St. James' Women in the Winner's Circle Foundation and The Henry Ford to present the traveling exhibit "Women in the Winner's Circle." The exhibit recognizes the history, growing achievements, and future growth of women in racing.

The exhibit features informational panels, photos, three race cars, and personal artifacts illustrating the achievements of women in motorsports, dating back to 1903. Five different eras are represented, and an interactive kiosk allows visitors to read in-depth biographies of some of the top female drivers, plus listings of racing terms, driving schools, and sanctioning bodies. Among the artifacts on display are St. James' 1989 Ford Thunderbird that set closed course speed records at Talladega, Jutta Kleinschmidt's helmet, shoes, and gloves, from her 2001 Paris Dakar Rally win, and a Sarah Fisher firesuit from the IndyCar Series.

Tickets for the Daytona 500 Experience, which includes admission plus the Speedway tour, are $24.99 plus tax for adults and $19.99 plus tax for seniors (60+) and children 6 to 12; children under six are free.
