Stephanie ready for action

When and how did you get started in racing?

My dad used to work on Sprint Cars while I was growing up. The guys at the shop used to always ask me when I was going to start and finally when I was 6 I decided I wanted to go racing.

Who had the biggest impact on your racing career and why?

My dad and my brother Josh because they are always there to motivate me and believe in me.

What would you be doing if you weren't racing?

I would probably still be playing softball for school.

What is your favorite aspect of racing?

The speed and adrenaline rush I get before every race.

What is your greatest accomplishment/best memory?

My best memory would have to be alawys traveling to different race tracks and meeting new people every summer!

What is the worst thing that has happened to you in racing, or your worst season?

Nothing bad has ever really happened, but flipping my sprint car wasn't the highlight of my year.

In your own words, describe your 2007 season:

Definately a learning season and an outlook of what my competition will be like next year!

What are your plans for the 2008 season?

Run the MSCS series and local shows.

Where do you see Sprint Car racing five years from now?

I would hope that I'm not only racing Sprint Cars but Midgets also and making history as a woman.

What is your ultimate goal?

To race IRL or Nascar.

Anything else you would like to add?

Big thanks to Jeff Olson for giving me the chance to show my talent! 2008 should be a GREAT year for the team!
