DUBAI: US-Iraqi beauty mogul Huda Kattan has announced that her brand Huda Beauty will sponsor NASCAR's first female Arab driver Toni Breidinger for her track debut at General Tire 200 at Talladega Speedway.
Breidinger will drive the Huda Beauty 02 Chevrolet SS for Young's Motorsports at the events and will work with Kattan to shine a light on the importance of cultural representation and women’s empowerment, according to a released statement.
“Toni Breidinger is a bad a** woman setting an incredible example for people around the world,” Kattan said in a released statement. “I am in awe of her accomplishments and so excited to watch her grow and continue to break barriers. Her efforts and successes are second to none and I couldn’t be prouder to support her during this incredible moment in her career and in her life. She is a walking representation of what our brand, Huda Beauty, stands for: Passion and Purpose. It was a no brainer for us to want to support her on this day – she is an absolute rock star! We’re rooting for you big time, Toni,” she added.
For her part, the race driver said: “Huda was a big inspiration to me growing up. When I was younger, I used to sit in my room and pretend to make YouTube videos just like her and it feels like a full circle moment now that I get to work alongside her. I am beyond honored to continue to tell the story of the importance of inclusivity and diversity through our work together.”
At just 21 years old, Breidinger holds 19 USAC wins — an all-time record high for any female driver.
