AUTO RACING’S LATEST SENSATIONAL SWEETHEART, BETTY COOPER ZOOMS AROUND THE TRACK AGAIN IN AN ALL-NEW STORY!

In the world of auto racing, nothing has been more exciting and inspiring than the rise of female racecar drivers. Fearlessly competing against their male counterparts, several female drivers have made their marks in this popular sport.

Not only have these women shown they have what it takes to master what was once a male-dominated sport, but they’ve done so in such a way as to inspire a new breed of racing fan: young girls who want to emulate their cool and-in-control idols!

From pioneers like Janet Guthrie (the first woman to qualify and compete in both the Indianapolis 500 and Daytona 500) and Lyn St. James (the first woman to win the Indy 500 Rookie of the Year award), to today’s top female drivers like Sarah Fisher (the first woman to win pole position in a major North American open-wheel race) and the phenomenally popular Danica Patrick (the first female driver to lead the race at Indianapolis), female auto racers have captured the hearts and imaginations of the nation’s youth, especially young girls.

Longtime readers of Archie Comics know that ever-popular Betty Cooper is fearless in her own right. This past January, Betty’s interests in sports in general and auto mechanics in particular finally combined for the inevitable: Betty Cooper, racecar driver! Reaction to the story, “The Fast Track to Success” from ARCHIE #572 was so positive, we had no choice but to bring back the latest auto-racing sensation.

In the story, “Crash Course” from ARCHIE & FRIENDS #112 the saga of radical teen racer Betty Cooper and the Lodge Racing Team pit crew continues! Fresh from her thrilling victory lap in the pages of ARCHIE #572, Betty once again dons her racing duds and puts the pedal to the metal Danica Patrick style! Has the makeshift pit crew finally become a well-oiled machine? Can Betty still out-race the overconfident male drivers? There’s only one way to find out – race to your nearest comic book dealer and head for the finish as you read this fast-paced tale! This is one full-throttle sequel that is sure to rev your engine!
