Cool Chicks Fast!!!

While most of our coverage this past weekend focused on the first electric sportbike race to hit US soil, another first occurred at Infineon Raceway: the first female winner of an AMA Pro Racing event. Elena Myers took the checkered flag on Saturday’s AMA Supersport race, albeit with some help from the man with the red flag. From that finish Myers is being touted as the first woman to win an AMA road race, and already there is talk of an entry point for lady riders into this male dominated sport.
While there’s some debate as to what first Ms. Myers is the first female to actually achieve (Sherry Friduss won a pair of AMA Battle of the Twins Heavyweight Modified races in the 1980’s, back when that series was still considered to be an “amateur” event), the feat by the 16 year-old is nonetheless a great accomplishment, and a boon for road racing here in the United States.
When she’s not on the track, Myers is busy maintaining her 4.0 grade point average.*What were you doing when you were 16?

You'll need to throw a little Matt Mladin worship in there to wake the beast....
