Nicole: We are looking for sponsors NOW and we have made history already and will continue as I am the 1st black woman to race now and compete in NHRA top sportsman, competition eliminator, pro stock. I will also be the first to race NHRA pro mod once we find funding then once I smash all the competition in that… it’s on to Nascar for 2012.
