Every year, NASCAR organizes the Better Half Dash competition. In the 2023 edition of the event, McCall Gaulding beat 13 other female race car drivers and better halves of NASCAR drivers in a go-karting race. NASCAR organized the event in June 2023 at the Trackhouse Motorplex in Mooresville. Zane Smith’s move to Trackhouse following his soon-to-be wife’s victory at the team’s arena is a sign from the heavens.

Gaulding has won the competition three times on the trot already. Having succeeded in 2021 and 2022, she took the checkered flag relatively easily after 15 laps of the go-kart race. Some notable drivers to compete in it were Erik Jones‘ partner, Holly Shelton, Daniel Suarez‘s fiancé Julia Piquet, and Ariana Jencik.

In a noble act of kindness, Zane Smith’s fiance donated the $10,000 winning purse to the Atlanta-based charity organization, City of Refuge, which helps families and individuals in crisis. McCall’s 2023 win was the first time she won the competition on the race track. The previous two editions were limited to an iRacing-based simulation race due to COVID-19 restrictions.

As I had a deep-rooted interest in automobiles, the sport naturally piqued my interest in a jiffy. Kyle Busch and his cutthroat style of racing played an important role in getting me hooked to stock car racing as I hopped on streams to watch him win races.
