Not even motherhood could keep Alli Owens away from racing.

The former ARCA Racing Series competitor will attempt to make her NASCAR XFINITY Series debut at Richmond International Raceway in September for Obaika Racing after a five-year hiatus from racing.

In 32 ARCA starts, Owens claimed three top-10 finishes with a best of sixth at Talladega in 2009.

The two-time mother will make NASCAR history and become the first woman to have children, and then go on to race in one of NASCAR’s top-three series.

“Becoming a mother I had to take time away from driving race cars,” Owens said. “But now that I have my girls, my sights have never be clearer on getting back behind the wheel.”
