Nascar Names Latasha Causey Phoenix Raceway's New Track President





Latasha Causey becomes the first African-American woman to hold the position of track president in Nascar history.


Even though she grew up in Phoenix, AZ, she wasn't a Nascar fan. "I always wanted to know like what it was about," Causey said. "NASCAR just wasn't necessarily our thing when I was growing up."


Most recently, Causey served as vice president and community development officer for Bell Bank in Arizona. There, she helped guide the company's efforts in helping minority-owned businesses, non-profit organizations, and underserved populations and neighborhoods.


"Latasha's track record speaks for itself as a highly experienced executive that prioritizes relationships and giving back to the community — also core values of ours at NASCAR," said Chip Wile, NASCAR senior vice president, and chief track properties officer. "NASCAR and Phoenix Raceway take pride in making a positive impact on the community through creating a best-in-class experience for fans when they visit the track, as well as through actively giving back and playing a significant role as a community partner. Because of these ideals, Latasha is the perfect fit to lead Phoenix Raceway into 2023 and beyond."

Good Luck to Latasha Causey in her new role!
