Concord, North Carolina (Oct. 9, 2014) –  The ladies of NASCAR are set to compete in the fourth annual Better Half Dash at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014. The girls will be driving U.S. Legend Cars International Bandoleros down the front stretch for the title and to help Motor Racing Outreach and Speedway Children’s Charities in their working making the life of others better.

Last years champion, Ashley Stremme will be on hand to defend her title, and showcase the driving skills that won her the title. “We’ve got some pretty stout competition this year,” said Stremme. “We’ve got some girls coming back. It’s going to be interesting with the bandoleros being so, you know, everybody running the same thing. We don’t get to tweak or test in them.

“It’s going to be tough; it’s going to be interesting. I think it’s all going to be about starting spots,” continued Stremme. “Just because we sit in the pit box week in and week out doesn’t mean we’re not competitive ourselves.”

New faces will also be behind the wheel this year, as Amy Reimann, the girlfriend of Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be running in her first Better Half Dash. “I’m about as green as it gets, so I need a little bit of practice. But I hope we’re competitive and I hope we get the trophy,” said Reimann. “Dale talked me into it. It was offered to me by Kelley (Earnhardt Miller). And I didn’t really know what the Better Half Dash was to be honest. I mentioned it to Dale and he said, ‘yeah, you’ve got to do it. You’ve got to do it. It’s going to be so much fun.'”
