FAIRLAWN, VA – Winnipegger Amber Balcaen has made racing history.
The 24-year-old captured the checkered flag of a NASCAR Whelen All American Series race at Motor Mile Speedway in Virginia, becoming the first Canadian-born female racer to win a NASCAR sanctioned event in the US.
Balcaen, a third-generation racer, is wrapping up her first season driving on pavement, and with just a handful of races left in the season accomplished one of her biggest goals of winning in America.
