Chicago, Illinois, USA (Feb. 17, 2017) - Car Chix, the premier motorsports organization for women, will be live streaming on the Car Chix Facebook Page during the 10th Annual Race and Performance Expo.  The Facebook Live feed will include talking with the women of the  Midwest Nostalgia Pro Stocks “paying tribute to the legends” and a hand lettering demonstration by Kustom Kulture Artist, “Brando”.

“This will be must see event,” says Jeanette DesJardins, President and Founder of Car Chix, “It will be like taking a walk down memory lane of the good ‘ol days of drag racing with modern day technology, perspectives and views.”

The women of the Midwest Nostalgia Pro Stocks “paying tribute to the legends” will be discussing their personal experiences in racing with Car Chix; including: how they got involved with drag racing, roles on the race team and what they see for the future of women in racing.  World Renowned artist, “Brando” from Kustom Kulture will be free-hand lettering Mike Ruth’s Bob Glidden Nostalgia Pro Stock tribute car.  The live stream event will be filmed by Amy Dayton of ARS Promotions for an upcoming segment of their hit TV show, ARS-TV.  In addition, a major sponsorship announcement is expected to be made with a leading performance manufacturer.


The Car Chix Facebook Live Event will take place on Sunday, February 26th at 2 PM CST in the Heidts Hot Rods Booth (Booth #1221 - 1235) during the Race and Performance Expo.  For those unable to attend the event, the event will be streamed in real time on the Car Chix Facebook Page:

“Live feeds…,” Jeanette DesJardins laughs,”You never know what will happen.”


Car Chix is set to take the 10th annual Race and Performance Expo by storm.  In addition to the major Facebook Live Event on Sunday, the Car Chix will have an action packed Saturday including a 2017 Car Chix Calendar Autograph Signing from 1-3pm at the Car Chix Booth (#1812) where attendees can meet with the Women of Motorsports Car Chix Calendar features.  Jeanette DesJardins of Car Chix will be demonstrating how you can maximize your marketing efforts at the debut of the ‘Motorsports Marketing - Promoting You and Your Race Team’ Seminar from 3:15 - 3:55pm in the Prosperity Room.
