A bit about the background, Wendy was born on January 30, 1979, in Chicago, Illinois. She is 29 years old. Racing comes to her from her family background as her dad Bill Venturini is a two time ARCA Champion.
After finishing high school, Wendy Venturini went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelorâ€™s degree in Communication Studies and Psychology.
Wendy Venturini also minored in Journalism as well.
That she was immensely talented was no surprise as while at UNC, she hosted a show for Sports Xtra at UNC-CH Student Television.

She also worked as a sports intern for the NBC affiliate, WCNC. While at WCNC, she was a field producer for NASCAR specials during race weeks at Loweâ€™s Motor Speedway. (Phew!)
Wendy has been happily married to Jarrad Egert. Her husband is an engine tuner for Tony Stewart.
Some views I have been able to gather off the net.
I’ve always liked Wendy as a NASCAR reporter. But since her recent marriage to a JGR employee, she seems to be showing a little bit of bias. What say you, NASCAR Nation?
I should have mentioned that I thought that she “soft-pedaled” her reporting on the JGR Nationwide penalties. She defended their actions, as a good wife should. But maybe a good wife shouldn’t be reporting about her hubby’s team? I still like her, I’m just a little disappointed.
I dont think so. If I had a relative in Nascar I would probably show bias too.(Guilty as charged) Ive watched her before in those school bus races up there in NC and she tenacious plus she has racing in her blood with I believe her dad or brother. I would rather watch her than Jimmy Spencer any day.
