Tiffany Daniels Honored By Lyn St. James With Kara Hendrick Memorial Award
Mar 25, 2008 - updated Mar 25th, 2008 9:40am

Smithfield, VA. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:March 17th, 2008

Completion of Phase Two in Driver Development Program Puts Daniels on Fast Track to Success

Driving a race car in the current motorsports industry takes more than just skill behind the wheel and good equipment under the driver’s seat.  It also takes confidence and mental preparation to handle the pressures of the industry.  That is why former IndyCar racer Lyn St. James, known as the American Woman Racing Icon of the Century, founded the Women in the Winners Circle Foundation.

To continue her climb up the racing ladder, Tiffany Daniels participated in and completed Phase Two of the foundation’s 2007-2008 Driver Development Program and along the way was presented with a prestigious honor, the Kara Hendrick Memorial Award.

The first phase of the four-phase program was held in November 2007, which focused on fitness and mental preparation.  The second phase continued the learning process by training drivers on how to work with the media as well as other business aspects of the sport.

“It was a really good experience,” said Tiffany.  “We participated in a lot of marketing and business training.  We were retested on our strength and conditioning, as well as on the Mindshaper software that evaluates our focus, concentration, and reaction times (from Phase One).  All of the testing went very well.  Overall it was just a really good experience.  I learned a lot about the marketing and business side of racing.”

During the program, Tiffany and the other participants were greeted by a few big names in the motorsports industry that have seen success throughout their careers.

“We had a couple race car drivers come in,” explained Tiffany.  “One was former F1 driver Derek Daly, who wrote the book ‘Race to Win.’  He spoke to us about how to become a championship driver and what that took.  On Sunday, Sarah Fisher came in and talked to us for a little while about her experiences. It was pretty neat being able to meet them.”

The highlight of the two-day event for Tiffany was the presentation of the Kara Hendrick Memorial Award, an honor given in the past to midget racer Shannon McIntosh, stock-car racer Allison Quick, NASCAR Whelen Featherlite driver Renee Dupuis and open-wheel racer Danica Patrick.

“The Kara Hendrick Memorial award is given out by Lyn St. James in memory of the late Kara Hendrick, a USAC driver who was killed the day she set a track record at one of her local tracks,” explained Tiffany.  “Lyn gives out the award when she sees someone that has similar spirit and talent to Kara Hendrick.  It is not something she gives out every year, so it is a prestigious award and I am honored that someone like Lyn thinks highly enough of me to give this award.  It means a lot to know she realizes how hard I have been working and how determined I am to make it in racing, which is a tough sport.  To have Lyn St. James recognize me is really special.”

St. James felt Tiffany was deserving of the award based on her positive attitude and future outlook in the sport.

“All the drivers who attend our program really want to succeed in racing, but not every driver grasps the concept of just how hard they have to work,” explained St. James.  “And when they do sometimes it's just overwhelming and often they have to take a step back and go to work.  Then on occasion I see a driver who not only has the talent and potential, and then takes the information and knowledge we share and runs with it.  It actually motivates and empowers them to move forward.  And they are able to keep their smile and spirit intact as well.  Tiffany demonstrated all of that in my opinion.  She has the potential to go far and carry Kara's spirit with her.”
