It’s not the holidays yet, but Obaika Racing is having quite a treat with new drivers as we prepare for the upcoming Xfinity race! Making their Xfinity series debut, the Decker sisters, Paige and Claire, will be heating up the Iowa Speedway come Sunday, June 19, 2016 at 1:30pm ET.
Wisconsin bred Paige (age 23) and Claire (age 21), have been racing competitively for over 2 years. In 2015, Paige made her NASCAR debut in the Camping Truck series at Martinsville where she finished 30th. The following year she and sister Claire, both raced in the Truck series at Martinsville and both finished within the top 30 with Paige at 25th and Claire at 27th. This Sunday, the sisters will be racing for Obaika Racing, with Paige behind the wheel #97 and Claire taking on the new car #77 Chevrolet Camaro.
Obaika Racing is thrilled to have the Decker sisters on board and expects to blaze up the track at Iowa. Our team is always happy to take on new drivers and introduce the NASCAR universe to aspiring talent.
“It’s not often you see two girls, yet alone sisters, in a NASCAR race” says team owner, Victor Obaika. “so we are really excited about this opportunity and hopefully this experience will open doors for many more female drivers.”
Vroom Brands will be sponsoring both cars.
We are definitely looking forward to the race this Sunday, with the Decker sisters, and are equally excited to be featuring the #77 car.
