“I’m incredibly honored and thrilled to be a part of the Women’s Sports Foundation’s Women in the Winners Circle Project Podium Grant. Having the opportunity to collaborate with two foundations that are making strides in the advancement of women in motorsports is truly amazing and humbling,” said Holbrook.
