How many women raced in NASCAR?

Several women have raced in NASCAR's three primary divisions (Sprint, Nationwide and Camping World Series). In total, 21 (unless I miscounted) women have raced in one of the three. The first woman to qualify for a NASCAR race was Sarah Christian, who raced in the first ever NASCAR-sanctioned race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 1949. She is credited with a 14th place finish, as she turned the car over to driver Bob Flock midway through the race. Two other women went on to race during the 1949 season, Louise Smith and Ethel Mobley (the sister of drivers Tim, Bob and Fonty Flock). To date, no female driver has won a race in either of the three series. The highest finish for a female driver is 4th, accomplished by Danica Patrick on March 5, 2011 at a Nationwide Series even at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Jennifer Jo Cobb has the highest points finish of any female driver in the history of NASCAR's three primary series, with a 17th place finish in the Camping World Truck Series in 2010.
