Mackena Bell will make her debut in one of NASCAR's premier touring series on Nov. 8. Bell will drive the Rick Ware Racing #23 Chevy Camaro in the NASCAR Nationwide series DAV200 "Honoring America's Veterans" race at Phoenix International Raceway.
Bell will be one of only a few female drivers to compete in the Nationwide series, following in the footsteps of Patty Moise, Erin Crocker, Joanna Long, Jennifer Jo Cobb, and Danica Patrick, who's now a Sprint Cup regular. Bell is also the only female graduate of NASCAR's Drive for Diversity Program to race in the Nationwide series. This is an important career move for Bell, who has been running in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East the past two seasons. It means she will be certified by NASCAR to run bigger tracks, something that makes her more valuable to teams in the ARCA, Camping World Truck, and Nationwide series.-jayski.com Wed, Oct 29, 2014 09:55:00 PM
