Goals

My goal is to be the highest winning female in NASCAR history. The passion, determination and persistence that I acquire makes me believe that I am well on my way to achieving those dreams.

My main objective as a racer driver (aside from winning races) is to use NASCAR as a platform to help others reach their full potential and to motivate others to be their best selves. Some ways I currently exude this is through my volunteering efforts, speaking at charity events, social media posts, and interactions with the younger generation at the race tracks.

Racing gives me the opportunity to partner with quality brands that promote positive action in communities around the world.
