Women in Motorsports Announces Women with Drive III

The 2-day WWD III – Driven by Mobil 1 conference will take place Nov. 7-8, 2023 at Phoenix Raceway in Avondale, Arizona.

Women in Motorsports North America (WIMNA) announced the third-annual Women with Drive – Driven by Mobil 1 (WWD III). The two-day conference will take place November 7-8, 2023 at Phoenix Raceway in Avondale, Arizona, following the final NASCAR Series race of the season.

The conference is part of WIMNA’s commitment to supporting and enhancing opportunities for women across all disciplines of motorsport.

WWD III will bring together the most successful and influential people to celebrate and continue the momentum created by the first Women with Drive Summit in Nashville, TN, and Women with Drive II – Driven by Mobil 1, held in Concord, NC, which was a sold-out industry summit, WIMNA says.

Through the years, WIMNA adds each event has doubled in size and has quickly become a must-attend event for those in motorsports committed to improvement and advancing opportunities in both inclusion and diversity.  Attendees include industry executives, drivers, team members, OEMs, sponsors, race track representatives and anyone working in the sport or wanting to learn more.

“Mobil 1 is thrilled to once again partner with Women in Motorsports North America and continue supporting the Summit as we strongly believe equity and inclusion in the industry are paramount to the success of motorsports,” said Michelle Hassinger, North American OEM marketing manager on behalf of Mobil 1. “We look forward to continuing the conversation to make motorsport more inclusive, creating new opportunities for women in the industry, and playing a role in positively growing the sport.”

To further inspire future generations of women in motorsport, Lyn St. James, a former race car driver and 2020 inductee of the Sebring Hall of Fame, was recently announced the first-female Grand Marshal of SuperSebring weekend, which is currently taking place in Sebring, Fla.

In addition to a successful and pioneering driving career, which includes her first professional victory at Sebring in 1990, St. James is a life-long advocate for career opportunities for women in the sport and continues to mentor women and guide them into motorsports careers at all levels, including leadership positions and as drivers, WIMNA says. She is also the co-founder of Women in Motorsports North America, with Beth Paretta, founder, owner, and team principal of Paretta Autosport – the first majority women’s team in history to run the Indianapolis 500.
