This vehicle is currently on loan from the National Sprint Car Racing Hall of Fame & Museum in Knoxville, Iowa, through 2022.
This World of Outlaws Sprint Car on display is the car Erin Crocker drove to Victory in 2004 in Tulare, Calif. to become the only female driver to win a World of Outlaws Sprint Car race.
In 2003, Erin won numerous races on the east coast driving a 360 cubic inch winged Sprint Car. She then decided to try her hand at driving a 410 cubic inch World of Outlaws Sprint Car and to try to qualify at the Knoxville Nationals. The Knoxville Nationals are the annual Super Bowl of Sprint Car racing.
With almost 170 cars entered, Erin survived the hard process of elimination and became the first female to qualify for the A Main at the Knoxville Nationals. She also won Rookie of the Year honors for the World of Outlaws that year.
Erin is still very active in the racing world as she and her husband, NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductee, Ray Evernham, are involved with promoting a racing series, television sports analyst, TV production etc..
This historical Sprint Car is on loan to the Woodland Auto Display from Erin and Ray Evernham
Dick Woodland notes, "I know both Ray Evernham and Erin fairly well. I served on the Board of Directors for the NSCHof&M with Erin for a period of time. They live in NC and Ray, among other things, was the Crew Chief for Jeff Gordon in NASCAR and went on with his own team to bring Dodge into the sport."
