My six-year-old daughter Colleen is growing into quite the little race fan. On more than one occasion, our speedway experiences together have produced interesting observations. A few columns have also been sparked from her motorsports commentary.

But an obvious factor had escaped her notice. The motorsports element that would, without question, grab a young girl’s focus and capture her attention like a movie about princesses saving ponies wearing diamond saddles. A detail that grows slightly each season and is now commonplace at racetracks has not been a major issue with her.
