Paretta Autosport is the first women-forward team in IndyCar Series history. The team launched in 2021 and made history when it qualified for and competed in the Indianapolis 500. Women comprised the majority of the team’s roster, including mechanics, engineers, over-the-wall pit crew, marketing, and operations.

Prior to the founding of Paretta Autosport, Paretta held executive leadership roles across finance, operations, and marketing at Volkswagen Group, Aston Martin Lagonda and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). She was the first woman to lead a performance brand and motorsports of a global auto maker, as the director of marketing and operations for SRT – Street and Racing Technology division of Fiat Chrysler. In addition to brand development and managing multiple vehicle launches, she managed racing programs in NASCAR, IMSA, SRO, SuperCross, TransAm, Global RallyCross, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.


In 2022, with Lyn St. James, Paretta launched Women in Motorsports North America (WIMNA), a professional organization for women working across all roles and disciplines of motor racing to promote networking, mentorship, and career development.

She serves on the Board of Directors of the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America and is the global marketing delegate to the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission. She has been named a “Game Changer” and “Power Player” by Sports Business Journal and an “Industry Influencer” by the Automotive Hall of Fame.
