PERFORMANCE RACING NETWORK says that WENDY VENTURINI's co-anchor debut covering the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series SYLVANIA 300 in NEW HAMPSHIRE SEPTEMBER 21st will be the first time a female announcer has co-anchored a SPRINT CUP race on the radio. VENTURINI has been co-anchoring NASCAR NATIONWIDE SERIES races with PRN President DOUG RICE and MARK GARROW since 2012.
RICE said, "WENDY has an incredible knowledge of our sport and for the past two seasons has been co-anchoring multiple NATIONWIDE SERIES races on PRN. She has steadily become more comfortable in that role and is ready for a SPRINT CUP broadcast."
VENTURINI said, "While I've never set out to be the first woman on a list of firsts in our sport, life has brought me to situations such as these. DOUG RICE believes in what I've contributed over the last decade in NASCAR, and I have a deep appreciation for the support given to me by the entire PRN team in this history-making moment."
