Here She Is, VERENA MEI, The only TRUECAR Girl To Make Our List
Verena is the only TrueCar Racing Girl to make the: AmericanCarAmericanGirls.Com’s 2012 Baddest and Hottest Female Drivers in America. To get the low-down on the other girls go to Former Featured Articles on the homepage and scroll down to: TRUECAR RACING/GIRLS.
Verena began her career as an actress and model. She was in a couple of The Fast And Furious type movies and got the racing bug. She’s driven competitively in drag racing, drifting, and time attack. I think she’s found her home in rallying driving.
2012 is Verena’s first year in the Rally America National Championship, and she’s had a successful season. Verena & Leanne finished all 6 races in the championship. They not only won the B-Spec National Championship, becoming the first all-female team to win a Rally America National Championship, they placed 4th in the overall 2WD National Championship (with the least amount of horsepower in the series), and Verena was tied for “Rookie of the Year” with her Team O’Neil teammate, “Fast Eddie”, until the very last stage of the final race of the season, when Eddie pulled ahead. Verena is the first female to ever be a “Rookie of the Year” contender in the history of Rally America.
Make no mistake Rally America is a tough racing series. It’s remote, muddy, snowy, rainy, dusty, dirty etc, etc.. It seems that the glam Verena is tough enough to take it.
