“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 and to be celebrating amazing Women in Sports tonight at the Annual Salute. Having the opportunity to collaborate with the foundation making strides in the advancement of women in motorsports is truly amazing and humbling,” said Holbrook.
