If you’re a diehard feminist who can’t stand having a door held open, this might not be for you. I love being treated like a lady, so nothing pleased me more than joining this Ladies First Track Day, held just for women at Grattan Raceway in Belding, Michigan, this past July. Apparently, there are lots of women who just don’t feel right getting on a racetrack for the first time with a bunch of dudes. And who can blame them? Testosterone and gasoline can be a scary combination, especially when some alpha-male spots the ponytail that says a _chick _has just passed him! At least one gal I interviewed said she wouldn’t have come if the event hadn’t catered specifically to women.
