There are two representatives from the NASCAR world on Forbes’ newly released list of “Women In Sports To Watch” in 2019.

The sport is represented by driver Hailie Deegan and track executive Julie Giese.

Deegan competes in the K&N Pro Series West and last year became the first woman to win a race in the series after a last-lap pass at Meridian (Idaho) Speedway.

Giese is the president of ISM Raceway, a position she was named to last October, making her the only female president of any of International Speedway Corp.'s 13 tracks.

Giese has been with ISC since 2001 when she joined Watkins Glen International as the director of public relations.
