INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 11, 2013) – Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama driver Kristin Treager was one of eight women recognized today at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show in Indianapolis, Ind. The Women’s Sports Foundation (WSF), a leader in promoting sports, health and education for girls and women, recognized a select group of up and coming racers at the annual PRI show.

Treager and seven others make up the WSF Winners Circle Project Podium Grant Class of 2014. The grant is designed to help young racers overcome the business challenges unique to motorsports. Treager received funds to support her 2014 season and will have access to the WSF mentors to assist her when needed.

“I am honored to be chosen by the Women’s Sports Foundation and the Women in the Winner’s Circle Foundation as one of the recipients of the Project Podium Grant,” Treager said. "Both foundations have been making great strides in the advancement of women in motorsports. I look forward to the day when a great number of women drivers are participating in motorsports across all divisions and series of racing. Under the leadership of Lyn St. James, we can make this goal a reality.”

Treager will run her first full Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama season under the Wright Motorsports tent next year. The 26-year-old competed in two GT3 Cup Challenge USA races in 2013 in the Gold Cup class. She hails from Tulsa, Okla. and spends her time away from the track in the court room as a licensed attorney.
