For the fans by the fans...
Ladies of Speed was first birthed from the creative genius of two wonderful ladies who forged a partnership to last. NASCARFemale was founded in February 2015 as a small but valiant effort to show the world that the guys aren't the only ones who love the sights and sounds of one of the most legendary American sports. Since its founding, Ladies Of Speed has expanded into a community of ladies who believe that NASCAR isn't just for men and that fans are the groundwork support of the racing community.
Each lady who writes for LOS writes journalistic quality reports about their driver of choice from week to week as the NASCAR season progresses throughout the year, providing readers with both the facts and in-depth opinion pieces meant to gain insight into the events of the season so far.
The Ladies of Speed
What started as a random conversation via Twitter would turn out to be a life-changing friendship. Little did they know that a new family of ladies would be formed just shy of a month later.
"She [Liz] retweeted a tweet about Jeff [Gordon] and the race. I told her it was about NASCAR, and she said, 'Maybe one day there will be a NASCARFemale!' January 2015 it all came to fruition!" - Katelyn Kinnett
And that is how a gal from British Columbia, Canada, and a gal from Cincinnati, Ohio, came to found NASCARFemale which would later form the present day Ladies of Speed, LLC.
