Toni Breidinger is set to make her NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut as she has been announced as the driver of the No. 1 TRICON Garage Toyota Tundra for the upcoming race at Kansas Speedway on May 6th.
The 23-year-old racer will carry primary sponsorship from Victoria’s Secret. Breidinger was featured as a model in the 2022 Victoria’s Secret Fall Collection Campaign.
Breidinger’s No. 1 truck will feature a white and black base paint scheme with gray and pink accents on the sides of the vehicle.
For Breidinger, her career is all about defying odds, as she was long told she couldn’t be a Victoria’s Secret model while also pursuing a racing career.
“When I was younger, I dreamed of being a racecar driver and a Victoria’s Secret model. I was told I couldn’t do both, but here I am — I’ll be driving the No. 1 Victoria’s Secret Toyota Tundra TRD Pro at Kansas! I’m endlessly grateful to the Victoria’s Secret team for believing in not only me, but women in sports. A huge thanks to Toyota Racing Development and TRICON Garage for this opportunity. It’s going to be a learning curve, but I’m ready to soak up every bit of it,” said Breidinger.
The native of Hillsborough, California has 35-career starts in the ARCA Menards Series and has a career-best finish of eighth, which she achieved at Salem Speedway last season.
Breidinger, who will run double duty at Kansas Speedway in Trucks and ARCA, is a 19-time winner in USAC competition, nine of those victories coming in the Western midget division. Her 19 wins makes Breidinger the winningest female driver in the history of USAC.
