It all started when…
Femmewalla was originally envisioned by track owner Aimee Grana back in 2010. After closing the track at the end of a SoCal Track Days event, Aimee asked staff members to stay a few minutes more so that she and her best buds (Melissa Paris and Jen Dunstan) could enjoy some testosterone free track time to themselves. Aimee enjoyed herself so much that she began to organize an annual track day for women only that would foster a safe and non-intimidating way for women to experience riding on the racetrack. At the same time the event could help raise funds for the Unforgettable's Foundation in honor of Micky and Aimee Grana's two-year old daughter, Jessica Hart, who had passed away.
The Unforgettable's Foundation, helps with burial assistance to families who have lost a child. "When you have a child, you think about saving for their college education, not their burial" stated Aimee in the rider's meeting. She went further to say, "I am grateful to have the ability to share a sport that I love so much with other women, I know how intimidating riding on the racetrack can be. I couldn't think of a better way to welcome more women to this sport while at the same time honoring my Unforgettable Jessie by supporting such an incredible cause."
From small humble beginnings of only 3 riders on the track in 2010, to over 300 riders and over $55,000 raised to benefit the Unforgettables Foundation over the years, Femmewalla Track Day has become one of the most beloved riding events of female riders nationwide.
