(Stafford Springs, CT)—The 3rd Annual Ladies Challenge race joins the action packed NAPA Fall Final Weekend, scheduled for September 28-29. Eleven ladies have lined up Street Stock rides and have taken on the challenge in the interest of charitable giving. The race will be the final feature of the day on Saturday, September 28.
Eleven different foundations will reap the benefits of this special event, thanks to these amazing ladies and the car owners in the Street Stock division. The starting lineup for the Ladies Challenge is determined by how much money each woman raises for their selected foundation. The person raising the most money will be pole sitter for the feature event.
Below are the participants with the cars they are associated with and links to each participant’s charity of choice.
