The Mildred Williams Driving Series returned to Harrington Raceway Sunday for the third consecutive year.
Eight female drivers from around North America drove in the fourth race on the program, with each generously agreeing to donate their earnings to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. 21-year-old Megan Fortna earned her first career win in the race aboard Carol and James Atkinson’s Fire and Ice ($10.60). Kelly Case, one of racing’s winningest female drivers, was crowned seasonal champion and also shared in the playoff championship with 25-year-old Anita Valstad, whose mount And Whos Next A finished third Sunday.
The Mildred Williams Driving series is an annual tour of women drivers across North America, competing for various charities. The women competing at Harrington Sunday were racing at their third track in two days. Ann Curran is the Executive Director of the Mildred Williams series and has coordinated all events since its inception in the states three years ago.
