    Foxwoods sponsoring renowned female race car driver

    Mashantucket ― Foxwoods Resort Casino has announced a partnership with Cassandra Cole, a trailblazing female race car driver, in celebration of Women's History Month.

    Foxwoods will be the primary sponsor of Cole's race Sunday at Thompson Motor Speedway in Thompson and throughout the season at Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford Springs. She’ll drive a Spafco house car prepared by Ken Barry of Preston.

    Cole, who currently resides in Westbrook, has been racing since she was 9 years old. In 2022, she received her first podium finish in the Spafco Race Chassis SK Light, and has become a vocal advocate for women in motorsports.

    In 2014, she won Rookie of the Year honors at her home track, the New London-Waterford Speedbowl in Waterford. She became the first female to win in the Legend Division at the Speedbowl in 2015, and was named Sportsman of the Year there in 2016.
