Paretta Poised To Lead Racing into New Era of Opportunity for Women

Editor’s Note: Wednesday, Feb. 3 is the 35th Annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day. This is her chance to see “Paretta” live on in history. Paretta is hoping her team’s legacy lives on in auto racing history. In a male-dominated sport, Paretta is fielding an all-women race team in this year’s edition of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” with the hopes of going full-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES racing as soon as 2022. Paretta’s biggest hope with an all-women race team is that young girls will see her, De Silvestro or the plethora of women she will employ as engineers, PR reps, marketing specialists and more and see something they can be. She said what she learned from five years ago is that the race team and the mission must be separate. The ring features her name on one side, and Team Penske’s on the other.
