We first met Tumwater's Jessica Dana last year - a mature 16 year old with nerves of steel behind the wheel, and a victory over NASCAR star Jeff Gordon on her resume! Since then, she's left more competitors in the dust and gained more experience on speedways across Western Washington. Now, she's captured the attention of NASCAR's prestigious Drive for Diversity program. Jessica joined Margaret to update us on her career.
