I found this picture from the Grove in the Mid 70's of a Lady Late Model Racer. It looks like it says "Jen" on the Helmet. Since I'm not a Late Model guy can anyone fill me in on who she is and what year it was? Thanks.

She was brought in by Jack Gunn as a publicity stunt..

She was here one weekend. She appeared on TV shows...and was "Miss South Viet Nam" in 1967. She was on ABC Wide World of Sports in a demo derby also...

Wow, that jarred the memory bank. I remember that. All I could remember was Joy.
