I would like to thank The Ledger for the article about ladies of drag racing ["Girls Rule! NHRA celebrating strong female competitors," May 8]. This is a sport that is supported by fans everywhere and is not in the forefront of sports reporting.

Finally the step was made to make a comparison of how women are also the top performers and winning in a once male-dominated racing sport. NASCAR ladies get the praise and are the face of advertising with marginal winning records; now you have placed these National Hot Rod Association ladies in the limelight. Written by Jenna Fryer, the article is worth a read if you are a race fan. Thank you so much.
