Jessica Tow may hail from New Hampshire but her love for NASCAR/motorsports goes well beyond a small New England state. Racing is in Jessica’s blood…literally. Both her father and uncle used to race in the enduro, street stock and Legends car series’ before she was born. Jessica was raised by her single father who introduced her to the world of motorsports at a very young age. She spent most of her childhood watching races at LEE U.S.A. Speedway and Star Speedway, attending her first ever stock car race at the age of 3.

Jessica has been attending NASCAR races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) since the age of 6. It is safe to say that the “Magic Mile” has become her second home, as she never misses a race. During her senior year of high school, Jessica completed her senior capstone project on property improvements that have taken shape at NHMS since 2008. Based on her project and networking opportunities, she had the honor of working with the NHMS Events department as an unofficial intern during both 2011 NASCAR race weekends. In February 2012, Jessica landed a salaried position with NHMS as one of their part-time street team members. Her job is to hand out promotional brochures and assist in handling appearances with the track’s mascot, Milo the Mile-Oval Moose. In addition, Jessica has served as a member of the NASCAR Fan Council since 2010.

Jessica's love for motorsports extends beyond NASCAR. She also enjoys IndyCar, Supercross/Motocross, Global RallyCross, drag racing, and more.

Jessica is currently a full-time student at Southern New Hampshire University, pursuing her Bachelors of Science degree in Sport Management entirely online. With a minor in Organizational Leadership, she hopes to pursue her Master’s degree in Marketing alongside a Graduate Certificate in Leadership of Non-Profit Organizations or Social Media Marketing. Once she has finished her education, Jessica would like to relocate to the Charlotte, NC area. She hopes to pursue a career of some sort within the business side of the NASCAR industry.

Outside of motorsports, school, and writing for Skirts and Scuffs, Jessica works part-time as a Customer Experience Coordinator for a well-known national retail chain. She is a member of a small Venture scouting crew. She enjoys singing, running, cooking, kayaking, spending time with friends and family, and traveling to places she has never been before. Her ultimate dream is to visit each of the NASCAR-sanctioned racetracks across the country. Jessica believes that it is important to take advantage of every opportunity life presents. Her personal motto is: “Your life is now. Seize it and make it amazing.”

Jessica is a fun knowledgeable person to hang out with at the track. She did a great job handling Milo the Moose leader of the Moosehead Maniacs.
