Twin hotties Amber and Angela Cope made their NASCAR debut Saturday at the Camping World Truck Series race in Martinsville, VA. For the first time in NASCAR history, a set of twins competed together in a national division.
27-year-old identical twins Amber and Angela Cope, nieces of 1990 Daytona 500 winner Derrike Cope, hadn’t competed in over a year before Saturday’s race, the sagging economy having made it tough to find sponsorship to fund a two-car program.
The girls are hoping they turned enough heads Saturday to one day get a two-car team. Amber Cope, finished 26th, three laps down, and Angela Cope, involved in two incidents finished 30th, six laps down.
Series veteran Ron Hornaday won the race.
“The twins are smart, attractive and have talent,” Derrike Cope said. “And they understand that there is a learning process associated with being successful.
They started racing on the age of 9 in Go karts and rapidly created names for themselves by winning poles and races.
