Hope Solo to be in Pace Car for Brickyard 400

Tomorrow, the Brickyard 400 begins at 1:19 p.m. and it can be seen on ESPN. Something that you may not know about the race is Hope Solo, U.S. Women’s soccer goalie will be driving the Pace car for the race.

First of all, we need to take a step back and look at this. Hope Solo, the U.S. women’s soccer star is going to be represented in the Brickyard 400 for what she did in the World Cup. I think 2 big things can be raised.

1) Women’s sports: Women’s sports is up and running. People are beginning to watch Women’s sports. I went to a buddy’s house to just watch a women’s soccer game. It is rather crazy to think that I could have been watching the college world series but I decided to watch the women play.
2) Soccer aka football - “football”: An article that is going to be posted later today, Matt is going to explain to you about the rise of soccer in the United States. I couldn’t agree with him more.

I believe that Women’s basketball, softball, soccer, and many other sports will improve tremendously in its ratings. Because of the FIFA Women’s world cup, women’s sports is on the rise.
