Family:
My family is really big and really close. I'm 3rd of 6 kids, 3 sisters and 2 brothers
My moms family is German and Irish and my dads family is PuertoRican

How did you get started in racing?
 I started racing when I was 11 turning 12 and one of my dads customers invited us to the quarter midget track and then I just had to try it! I was hooked after I won my very first race!

What division do you race in and what tracks do you race at?
 I am currently testing and seeking sponsorship for the ARCA Remax Series
 We run a lot of the same tracks as the NASCAR CUP series and are partially televised

When you are not racing what do you do for fun?
When I'm not racing; I hang out with my friends and or family, go out dancing, movies, concerts, football and baseball games, go karts... But I love extreme outdoor sports like hiking, skydiving, Rock climbing etc.

If you could switch rides with any driver in any type of racing which one would it be?
 If I could switch rides with anyone... I would tell Marco Andretti to Swap with me because I'm in love with Indy cars! They are so much fun

Is there any race that sticks in your mind from the past, and why?
One race that sticks out in my mind is from my transition from open wheeled cars into stock cars. my 6th race ever in a late model or any stock car. I was racing at Mahoning valley speedway in PA, and I started on the pole and lead every lap! I was the first girl to win a late model stock car race at that track. It was epic for me, the team, and my family.

Did you play any sports when you were growing up?
Growing up I played softball every year until I had to choose between that and racing, guess I picked racing! 😄

Tell us something about you that would surprise your fans.
Something that would surprise my fans... I played drums in a band during high school,  and I was homeschooled my whole life (k-12th grade)

Whats the last movie you watched?
The last movie I saw was Prometheus, and for the 2nd time. (it was great)


If I could thanks anyone....
The list goes on and on!
Of course, first and foremost I thank God for everything He's blessed me with. Then I'd thank my mom and dad and family and crew! (Tom Berry, Rich Lacey, Jay, Sonny Croughn...)
Then A special thanks the late Dick Haring, and Nimmey who helped teach me everything I know about racing

And of course thank all the teams and sponsors i've worked with... To name a few; Dick Haring Racing, APS Powder Coating, Chuck Clark racing, ken Lipkowitz, Stuart Lisett from competition 101 racing school, Donny Holland, and of course the current Bob Schacht Motorsports and crew!
Lastly... Id love to thank Mr. Mark Bilger for letting me drive his daughters quarter midget in my first race ever! This is all partially your fault!
