Nicole Manske and Lindsay Czarniak: A NASCAR Girl's Inspiration Pt. 2

Amanda BradeenCorrespondent IJuly 17, 2009

This is a continuation of a previous article I wrote awhile ago about the females of NASCAR who inspire me every day.

My two newest inspirations are Nicole Manske and Lindsay Czarniak.

Nicole Manske is a native Rockton, Ill. She graduated from Hononegah High School in 1998 where she cheered with famous Indy driver Danica Patrick.

Manske attended and graduated from Northern Illinois University, where she worked at the NBC channel in Rockford. Nicole was also a reporter for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Radio Network.

In 2006 she announced her departure from the radio network and moved to Charlotte, N.C. to work for Speed Channel.

Manske became the co-host for The Speed Report. That gig went until January 27, 2008.

On January 23, 2008, Manske announced that she would be leaving The Speed Channel to become a co-host of NASCAR Now on ESPN where she continues to work.

This year it was announced that Nicole Manske is engaged to IndyCar series driver Ryan Briscoe.

Now let's get to Lindsay Czarniak. She was born on November 7, 1977 in Harrisburg, Pa. In 2000, she graduated for James Madison University with a major in online journalism.

Czarniak worked as a production assistant for CNN and also worked for Speed Channel.

Lindsay officially became the co-host of the George Michael Sports Machine in September 2006.

She traveled to Turin, Italy to cover the 2006 Winter Olympics for NBC sports.

She is currently a pit reporter for NASCAR on TNT. 

These two lovely ladies are not only pretty but they know what they are talking about. They enjoy their jobs and have worked so hard to get where they are today.

I can only hope that one day I can follow in these ladies' footsteps with my future in NASCAR.
