Background:

Erika Detota currently races among NASA and Rally America National Championships Performance Rally. She is the first woman to win a United States Rally Championship as driver and is a Keep-A-Breast ambassador spreading information to prevent and detect breast cancer.

Erika’s biggest Accomplishment was winning the Carl Merrill sportsmanship award. The Carl Merrill Sportsmanship Award is granted to a participating team at Prescott Rally in honor of a driver who was lost at the race. It was a touching surprise to receive the award for being the first woman to win the championship as driver. Carl Merrill was an accomplished competitor who embodied the spirit of my sport, he gave back and when Erika was first watching rally from the sidelines she always admired Carl’s Ford Cosworth with purple decals.
