Meet Brie Hershey

Hello my name is, Brie Hershey. and I am a sprint car driver. Currently I hold the highest point finish in a single season, by a female, at Williams Grove Speedway in Pennsylvania.  Racing has always been in my blood. I am the daughter of a sprint car driver, and grew-up in Central PA’s hot-bed of racing. I knew from the start that I wanted to race. At age 5  I began racing quarter midgets and was an Eastern Regional Champion at age 12. She went on to race in other open wheel divisions including 270 and 600 micro sprints. Once I was old enough, I made my way to sprint cars. Currently race sprint cars at various tracks in central Pennsylvania. I am a Lyn St. James Driver Development Program graduate and a Project Podium grant recipient. Aside from racing, I spend the cold off-season months teaching snowboard and ski lessons. I am also licensed Realtor with Keller Williams Keystone, and am pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering at Penn State University. To learn more about the me, driver of the #97 sprint car, go to or you can follow her on twitter at @BrieHershey97.
