Competitiveness is a wonderful thing harnessed by strong, capable ladies in the sports world. Many women in motorsports were also athletes in other sports before they began their racing careers.
These sports minded female racers drew on the experiences they gained in other sports to help them in the racing world.
DIna Parise - Ice Capades
"I was a professional skater for the famed Ice Capades. I was actually also a competitive gymnast through high School as well, where I was the team Captain. My Ice Capades days were in the 90’s and a few shows more recently as well. Touring with an Ice Show can be quite parallel to the Drag Racing circuit in that we travel once a week, city to city. I toured the US and Canada. Sound familiar?"
