Seekonk Speedway Regular Brittany Campbell Part of Busch Light Accelerate Her Program For 2023 Season
SEEKONK, Mass. – Seekonk Speedway is pleased to announce that Chaz Auto Body Sport Truck NASCAR Saturday driver Brittany Campbell has also been selected to be part of the Busch Light Accelerate Her program for the 2023 racing season, joining fellow division regular Amy Arsenault.
As part of the program, Woman in Motorsports North America is teaming with Busch Light to support females who are chasing a career in NASCAR, including short-track racing. The group has combined to form a points system that will be used during the season to calculate and reward females with the largest sums of points at the end of the year with monetary awards.
Last year, Busch Light committed to spending $10 million over 2022, 2023 and 2024 to elevate women in the sport. Their main objectives, per their press release: “to provide more funding, track time, media exposure, and training to prospective female NASCAR racers aged 21 or older.”
Campbell, like Arsenault, fits the brand perfectly – right here at your local NASCAR Home Track. As part of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Racing Series in the Division IV Sport Trucks, Campbell has been to Victory Lane multiple times driving the No. 8, and advanced into the final four last year in the inaugural Sunoco Drive For The Cup championship battle. For 2023, she’s looking forward to returning to the track to compete for wins at a high level. Being selected to the Woman in Motorsports Busch Light Accelerate Her program only gives her additional drive and confidence behind the wheel.
“It is very exciting to be part of a program so dedicated to supporting female racers. I remembered hearing about the Busch Light Accelerate Her program last year when it came out but never thought I would have the chance to participate in a part of it,” Campbell said. “I got a call a few months back out of the blue asking many questions about my racing career. I was very surprised when I received that call back in January that they were interested in me. I am so ready to get this season started and have the chance to earn
funds to support my future racing goals.”
Campbell, joined in that division by Amy Arsenault, will chase the title this year. Seekonk Speedway has seen multiple female champions in track history.
The points system for the 2023 season, created by the Woman in Motorsports North America, rewards women drivers based on their merit and race results during the year. The system includes factors like race length, size of the fields, level of competition and cost of competing in their class. Brittany and Amy will begin accumulating points during NASCAR Opening Day at Seekonk Speedway on Sunday, May 7, through September 30 on championship night. The top three finishers in the series will be rewarded with $125,000, $50,000 and $25,000, respectively.
“Going into this season as a part of the program makes me feel even more supported than I was before. It’s a good feeling being scouted out and contracted, it definitely provided me with reassurance and confidence heading into this season,” Campbell said. “I received countless calls and emails from Women in Motorsports NA after the first call, just checking up on me or following up with more questions. It really goes to show that they care about supporting my racing career, as well as the other females in the program.”
The Chaz Auto Body Sport Trucks will join the Pro Stocks, Late Models and Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment Sportsman for Seekonk’s 77th opening day on Sunday, May 7. The entire month of May includes action-packed racing on every weekend – including the annual Car Show & Go on Saturday, May 6, one day before NASCAR Opening Day. Two NASCAR Saturday showdowns on May 13 & 20, Fast Friday opening night on May 26 and the Memorial Day Thrill Show on May 27 will wrap a full month to open the year.
New for 2023, Seekonk Speedway fans should be aware that hot coffee will no longer be sold at the concession stands. With the new ticketing system, where fans can buy tickets for all events online at SeekonkSpeedway.com, tickets are cheaper online and there will be a limited number of ticketing agents at the gates on race day. Ticket prices for general admission for NASCAR Saturday normal events are $18 (unless a special event), but online are $15 plus processing fees. Fans who purchase tickets online will have access to the grandstands 30 minutes before those who purchase at the track and will also pay less.
