INDIANAPOLIS, June 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — After three highly successful Summits in Nashville, Charlotte, and Phoenix, Women in Motorsports North America announced today that the fourth annual Women with Drive Summit—Driven by Mobil 1 (WWD IV) will take place December 9-11, 2024, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN, to kick off PRI Show week.

Motorsports industry representatives will gather to celebrate the “wins” over the past year, introduce new people to consider pursuing a career in motorsports, and discuss the issues, challenges, and barriers within the industry. Stellar keynote speakers, panel discussions, and breakout sessions have been designed to help facilitate, educate, and encourage attendees to forge ahead in the motorsports space. Attendees are open to industry executives, drivers, team members, OEMs, sponsors, racetrack representatives, and anyone interested in career opportunities. This year, the Summit has added driver workshops to address essential skills off the track that will help develop their overall career.

New initiatives for WWD IV include “Breakfast at the Brickyard,” hosted by Indianapolis Motor Speedway to officially kick off the Summit on Tuesday morning, and a limited-capacity tour on Monday afternoon of the Speedway, Rahal Letterman Lanigan, Andretti Global, and Ganassi Racing shops.

A luncheon will be held at the Westin Indianapolis on Wednesday with a to-be-announced keynote. Luncheon tickets for those not attending the Summit will go on sale at a future date.

“Mobil 1 is thrilled to once again join WIMNA to continue supporting the Summit,” said Michelle Hassinger, OEM Marketing Manager for ExxonMobil, manufacturer of Mobil 1 – the world’s leading synthetic motor oil brand. “Mobil 1 continues its commitment to nurturing female talent within the industry, both on and off the track.
