Ethel Mobley (née Flock) (March 8 1920 - June 26 1984 of Fort Payne, Alabama was tied for the second female driver in NASCAR history. She was named after the gasoline her father used in his taxi [1] [2].

"Flying Flocks"Edit

Three of her brothers are considered to be NASCAR pioneers: Tim Flock, Fonty Flock, and Bob Flock. She was married to Charlie Mobley who fielded Tim's car in NASCAR's modified series.

Racing careerEdit

She raced in over 100 NASCAR Modified events in her career.

She had 2 Strictly Stock (now Sprint Cup) starts. She raced against her brothers at NASCAR's second event ever on July 10 1949 at the Daytona Beach Road Course. The event was the first to feature a brother and a sister, and the only NASCAR event to feature four siblings. Ethel beat Fonty and Bob by finishing eleventh (her career high), and Tim finished second. She made her only other career Cup start at Langley Speedway and finished 44th. Both events featured three female drivers (Sara Christian and Louise Smith).

On August 7, 1949, Ethel Mobley became the first female racecar driver to compete against men in the state of Georgia when she entered a race at Central City Speedway in Macon, Georgia. She was rated as the top woman driver in the southeastern United States, having won many competitions in all-women races.[1]
