"There's something so special about a woman who dominates in a man's world. It takes a certain grace, strength, intelligence, fearlessness, and the nerve to never take no for an answer" -Rihanna


I started drag racing with Naughty Girls Racing Club back in 2021 at Firebird Raceway in Eagle, Idaho. When I started, I was just racing my "daily driver," after all, you can bracket race almost anything! It is so empowering to be racing in a club of all women who support each other and help work on each other's race cars. I finally won my first race last year and it felt amazing! This year, I have started drag racing a motorcycle and I am one of only two female bike racers who regularly race at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. I had never even ridden a motorcycle on the road before, but the thrill of going 130+ mph on two wheels is something I can no longer live without. We are currently halfway through the season and I am sitting fifth in points in my rookie season! Racing has been my life since I began and I was even able to get my mom into racing for the club. I then introduced her to my now step-dad (another motorcycle racer), and met my now fiance (yet another motorcycle racer) at the drag strip. As a family, we eat, sleep, and breathe drag racing and I wouldn't have it any other way!
