Hi I’m Sloan Henderson and I'm a sixteen-year old female NASCAR Whelen Late model driver. The funny thing is, I got my NASCAR License this summer, but I haven't gotten my Ohio driver's license yet!! (I just got signed up with B Safe Driving school and will be taking classes soon) Carlisle Daily and The Franklin Voicefrom asked if I/we would write to you guys about my life as a teenager racecar driver.

I have been writing an article in the Franklin Chronicle for the last few years. I am looking forward to writing to all of you so that more people like yourself can keep up with my racing adventures every week and be an active part of my NASCAR vision and promote those individuals and companies that are helping me boldly go and do what no other female has done to date.

This introduction article is hard for me to write because it may sound like I am bragging about my accomplishments, and that's something I don’t want to do. So, here's my BIO as it will be read at Lyn St James Women of the Winner Circle, July 23, 2009, at one of the Brickyard 400 pre race events. (Slightly modified)

Sloan got her NASCAR Whelen License before her regular license. She started racing at age 12 where she won the Eastern Grand Nationals novice race, her fourth race ever! She then finished that year with over fifty heat and feature wins and three track records. Moving on to INEX Bandoleros Sloan won the Ohio State championship, K.O.I.L Championship, and road third place in INEX Nation books, racing and winning from Florida to Wisconsin. Then she got behind the wheel of a INEX Legend car where she raced for thirteen feature wins earning her Co-Championship in KOIL tour and sixth in INEX Young Lions. Moving up to 600hp Sloan nailed a Late Model test in the fall of '08 with Gary Estes Racing and Ford Focus Midget test in California with Ron Sutton. Sloan is currently wheeling a NASCAR Whelen Late Model in Ohio where she's leading the NASCAR rookie of the year points in Ohio, eleventh in overall Ohio points, and is eighth in track points. She is also the highest ranked female in NASCAR'S Whelen National Rookie points nationally. Off the track Sloan does weekly newspaper articles and can be heard on the Rebel 105.9 every Tuesday around 2:15 pm. She also works with the local Susan Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the local Make a Wish foundation. Sloan is also proud to say she a LSJ grad and has been blessed to attend the Women of the Winner Circle for the fifth time.

After all of these accomplishments, just think what I could do if I knew there were more people like you supporting me out there! I would like you to visit my website to learn more about my past, have the chance to get YOUR name on my NASCAR Whelen late model and stay tuned here to read about the racing history we’re making together.

See you at Kil-Kare Speedway Friday or Tuesday evening I'll be at Chick-F-La on 725
