Reitenour 19, Miamisburg Ohio native who now resides in Statesville, NC and drives for Mooresville based Revolution Racing as part of NASCAR's prestigious Drive for Diversity Program makes history. Reitenour became the first female to win a feature race at Tri-County Motor Speedway, taking Friday night's Firecracker 150 late model race.
Reitenour who qualified second in the No. 5 Air Tight Mechanical Revolution Racing Late Model started on the front row. Reitenour exercised extreme patience throughout the race by strategically riding in the third position, until her opportunity arose to take over the lead.
After the final caution, Reitenour maintained her position for the final 78 laps and took the checkered flag a straight away ahead of the field.
Megan said, "I want to thank my crew chief, Danny Johnson and my car chief, Lynn Martin for giving me a great car to win with and great advice to remain patient and take care of my equipment, until we could cease the opportunity and win the race. It was a great night for the No. 5 Revolution Racing Team. I would like to thank NASCAR, and our entire Revolution Racing organization and team for their support and opportunity."
