TOLEDO, Ohio - January 29, 2011) - Maryeve Dufault has already accomplished her first goal at Daytona International Speedway, and she's prepared to tackle more with the green flag dropping over the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 on Saturday, February 12.


Dufault, 28 and of Quebec, interviewed with Burning Rubber Radio's Andy Delay and Wayne Owens Thursday night, discussing her background and her plans for entry into the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. Dufault first spoke about her experience testing the No. 12 Tony Marks Racing Dodge.

"We just came back from the test in Daytona. The test went really well for me...I just wanted to have as much seat time as possible, and we did. I'm really happy with it. The team was able to gather information for the upcoming race. It was really helpful for me, because we were working with Larry Moore, who's been around in ARCA. He did a great job bringing the whole team together," Dufault said in the interview.

With a father whose background is in motorcycle racing and a career of her own that she says includes driving down "a bad road at 170 mph" in a motorcycle, Dufault was impressed but not intimidated by the Daytona oval.

"It's an amazing feeling to go at that speed in this kind of car," she said.

Dufault talked more about her racing career and her ARCA expectations in the interview. To listen to the full interview, click here.
