Pay It Forward Friday – NASCAR’s Christmas Abbott

Christmas Abbott recently inked a deal to be the first woman on a pit crew in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series. This is another landmark for women in the racing industry, following up Danica Patrick’s strong finish and pole position in the Daytona 500.

Abbott is a CrossFit trainer at 5’3″ and 115 pounds, and will be throwing around 60lb tires in the pits —more than half of her body weight.

Rachel Baribeau caught up with Christmas and asked about her road to racing, and how she is Paying it Forward.
