The actual quote is "it's the only sport where the women compete directly with the men and hold their own"; so, not just motor sport but all sport.

Later in the article it says, however: "the motorsport’s minor league is perhaps the only place in American professional sports where female athletes compete with men on a level footing", so we've gone from all sport to one discipline, limited it to the USA & introduced an element of doubt.

To me, that article epitomises two things: sloppy, uninformed "journalism" & American parochialism.
