  18. 18. Track Chic Testimonials<br />“I was traveling yesterday from the Petite Le Mans home to Charlotte and heard the broadcast on the radio talking about Marsha Mason and all the women broadcasters talking about racing. I almost teared up. I love racing and enjoy smart women speaking about a subject that is just not talked about enough. Its almost like a secret society.”<br />Lisa Wilson <br /> ISUZU Motors America<br />“I encourage you to keep growing Track Chic. It’s a great idea and you are an independent voice not NASCAR controlled. With the merger of Champ car and the IRL, there will be more excitement in open wheel racing in the coming years, too. Thanks so much. I’m looking forward to combining our efforts to get women more and more interested in the sport.”<br />Mary Scully<br /> Former Editor <br />Racing Milestones<br />
