Wendy Venturini, a reporter with the Performance Racing Network, is recovering in a California hospital after she was struck by a car while jogging Saturday morning.
Information passed along by PRN and the Venturini Motorsports group says Wendy suffered a skull fracture and a concussion. Fortunately, she is expected to make a full recovery and be released from the hospital within a few days.
Venturini was in California with the PRN group to broadcast the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway.
The daughter of ARCA Racing Series champion Bill Venturini, Wendy is a veteran of the NASCAR garage. In 2014, she became the first women to co-anchor a Cup Series radio broadcast when she did so at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
With experience reporting on all three NASCAR national series, Venturini has also worked for SPEED and in front of the camera for Fox Sports 1.
