However, being the daughter of Dan ...

However, being the daughter of Dan Renshaw, owner of Renshaw Automotive Group and a local race team, put oil in her veins and fueled her dreams of becoming a race car driver.
"I kept begging my dad, please dad put me behind the wheel of that race car and let me show you what I can do," Renshaw said.
...
Renshaw's race career started in Nashville in the Late-model Stock Car division at Highland Rim in Tennessee. However, she learned that the hardest part of her budding career might not be the racing, but instead facing the reality of being a woman in what s he calls "a good-old-boys' sport."
"I came in and started doing really well, and that was about the time people started asking 'Who is this girl?'" Renshaw said.
Renshaw overcame the diversity and finished 5th in points while also earning the coveted "Rookie of the Year" award.
Male competitors weren't the only people who started to focus on Renshaw. The Tennesseean , CNN, and even The Today Show were calling the up-and-coming young woman who was taking over the racing world.
Renshaw continued to drive toward her dream, competing in the NASCAR weekly racing series, the Busch series, Remax series, and Truck series.
Unfortunately, October of 2002 brought Renshaw tragedy. She was involved in an accident which killed another driver and put Renshaw in the hospital with a shattered left ankle, concussions, and numerous cuts and bruises.
"It was incredibly hard for me to deal with, not only physically but mentally," said Renshaw. "What was even harder was the stigma that came with it, until people started to (continued on next page) realize it was just an accident that could happen to anyone, it did not happen because there was a girl behind the wheel."
During this time, Renshaw depended on her family and friends for support.
"The doctors said it would take six months to a year," said Renshaw, "but I just wasn't having it."
She put her drive and determination to the test and was back on her feet and back on the race track in just four short months.
Renshaw ended her racing career in 2006, but she left NASCAR with more than records and memories.
...
Renshaw is currently working in Bowling Green at Greenwood Ford, her family-owned business. Seeing the hard work of her parents inspired her to be an entrepreneur herself.
Renshaw's next focus will be on Apricot Lane , a boutique she is opening in Greenwood Mall.
"It just seems like I found my niche," said Renshaw. "I was always a tomboy, but that didn't mean I didn't want to put on a little mascara and dress up every now and then."
Renshaw says the new boutique will be fun, fearless, and fashionable. She continues to stay busy and excited in all of her new endeavors. She still races when she has time on the local tracks just for fun. Her advice to young girls who are chasing after their dreams is one she said she lives by every day:
"Don't ever, ever give up, no matter what," she said.
