To continue their effort to support gender equality in motorsports, Chip Ganassi Racing announced their next group of interns for the second year of Women in Motorsports Powered by PNC Bank.
Three college students were selected from numerous applicants and will receive a funded internship with the team to immerse them in motorsports. The three students are Hailey Hein, a Mechanics major from Northern Arizona University, Nicole Goodman, an IT student from Indiana University and Raegen Moody, an Engineering scholar from Auburn University.
All three have a racing background. Moody is a race engineer for the Auburn iRacing team, Hein races off-road vehicles when not working as an automotive service technician and Goodman is a lab instructor.
“Supporting women in traditionally male-dominated spaces, such as motorsports, tech, and finance, is important to us because we know that a diverse workforce sparks innovation and influences economic inclusion,” said Debbie Guild, PNC head of Enterprise Technology and Security. “Whether you are in a boardroom, a lab or on pit lane, performance comes down to capability and grit. As a company seeking to cultivate the next generation of female leaders, we couldn’t be more excited to support Women in Motorsports.”
The success from the 2022 class was very evident as one of the five women from the first internship class, Rebecca Hutton, will be hired by Chip Ganassi Racing upon her college graduation. Hutton is in the center of the main photo above.
The 2024 internship class application window will open September 1st, 2023.
