When and how did you get started in racing?

My dad used to race both sprint cars and midegts. He got me started racing a quarter midget when I was 5 years old.

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

My Parents. They have always been there to support and help me along the way.

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

I would probably be going to watch sprint car races, or be involved with racing in some way.

What is your favorite aspect of racing?

I like the competition, and meeting new people. You can always learn something new and improve your driving.

What is your greatest accomplishment/best memory?

This year I won my first sprint car feature event at Paragon Speedway. I'm the first ever female to win a 410 non-wing sprint car feature across Indiana and the United States.

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

The hardest thing for me is to not get discouraged. Im in the learning process right now. I still have a lot to learn and I'm trying to improve on that at each race I go to.

In your own words, describe your 2007 season:

The 2007 season was probably the best Racing season ive had so far, especially in the sprint car. I learned alot, and I got my first sprint car win. That was a huge accomplishment for me.

What are your plans for the 2008 season?

I'm really looking forwrd to the 2008 season. I'm going to compete in the entire Midwest Allstar Sprint car Series with the wing. I am also going to run about 10-15 races with the Allstar Sprint car Series. Whenever I have a weekend i'm not racing with the wing I am going to take the wing off and run any non-wing races that I can.

What is your ultimate goal?

I want to run an Infiniti Pro Series car when I am 18. I would like to run either the IRL or NASCAR.
