Woosley First Female Crew Chief In NASCAR National Series History


Cindy Woosley didn’t set out to be a pioneer. She’ll be the first to tell you she’s “all about the cars.” But this weekend at Las Vegas, a woman who has always had an affinity for working on cars, has worked as a sheet metal fabricator as well as a skilled home builder, will add another line to her resume – the first female crew chief in NASCAR national series history.

Woosley will lead the No. 01 Lori Morgan LLC Chevrolet of JD Motorsports with Kertus Davis as the driver at Las Vegas. She moved to the top of the pit box following a six-race suspension imposed on regular crew chief Gene Allnut, who was one of five crew chiefs suspended due to a rule violation at Daytona. A native of Kentucky, Woosley has been with the team since last year and has been involved in racing for two seasons.
