Recess from the Race Track

April 28th and May 5th, proved to physically be too much for me. Both nights at Skagit Speedway in the Sportsman class ended with a broken and crumpled racecar. After facing some complications during mid terms at Western Washington University, I went to the doctors and then the neurologists. The conclusion is a concussion, vertigo, and a bruised brain. Therefore, I have to take a few weekends off the dirt oval. The Girlz Racing Team will be back and fierce as ever at the end of June.

I am an eighteen year old sprint car driver from small town Sultan, Washington. I go to Western Washington University and am going to major in Communications and hopefully work for NASCAR. I have been racing since I was nine years old. I started in 100cc mini sprints at Deming Speedway. After two seasons in what is now known as the Kasey Kahne Junior Sprints, I moved up to a 250cc mini sprint that I raced with my mom, Diane, for three and a half years. After mid-season we decided to quit the minis and save up for a big car to race at Skagit Speedway. By the next season we had everything ready to go.. My first season, 2010, I broke my neck a few races in, putting me out and in the 2011 season about half the season was lost to rain outs and high school graduation stuff. It is the start of the 2012 racing season and I have loyal family, sponsors, and fans that keep me on that tacky clay every weekend in the Sportsman Sprint class.
