Terri Sawyer was the first winner of a AUSCAR race after winning the AUSCAR 200 in 1988.
Terri’s win was the first win by a woman in the sport and her win was followed up by several strong performances that eventually taken her to the United States to try her luck there.
Terri attempted two races in the NASCAR Sportsman Series, Her first attempt was the Sportsman 100 which ended in a practice crash hitting the outside wall of Turn 4.
Terri’s second attempt was the Wiscassett 150 where she qualified 13th but was in an accident on Lap 3 resulting in a 38th place finish.
Soon Terri was back in Australia and went into NASCAR driving the #1 where she soon collected her first NASCAR win at Calder Park Thunderdome, becoming the first woman to win in that category too.
