NASCAR Nationwide: History-Making Twins Angela and Amber Cope Are Back to Race

Breaking News: All eyes will be on the NASCAR Nationwide Series when a famous pair of twins attempt qualifying for the John Deer 250.

The Nationwide Series is no stranger to the flux of females in the 2011 season, with Danica Patrick and Jennifer Jo Cobb running limited schedules.  On May 22, this Series will play host to its first set of twins: Angela and Amber Cope. 

Nieces of the 1990 Daytona 500 winner Derrike Cope, Angela and Amber Cope, are no strangers to NASCAR. 

Last year the dynamic duo made history while racing against each other in the Camping World Truck Series at Martinsville. 

Despite the lackluster finish, the girls earned valuable seat time and some much-needed sponsorship.

Angela and Amber began racing go-karts since the age of nine. With countless kart wins, they have also found success in Super Late Models and ARCA.  The duo is looking forward to a future racing in the elite NASCAR Series.

The Cope twins are currently scheduled to run the John Deer 250 and Feed the Children 300 race at Kentucky in July.
