NEXT GEN HAGERTY MEMBER, AGE 17
I’ve loved cars for as long as I can remember.
As a little kid, my dad would carry me
around at local drag races, and we would
guess which car would win. He’d quiz me,
too, asking whether the cars at shows had
big or “little” blocks. Nine times out of 10,
I knew the answer.
I never really thought about being in the
driver’s seat of a race car until I was 13. My
dad’s friend brought over a gorgeous 1996
Collector Edition Corvette, and I fell in love
with it. The NHRA had just introduced a
new class of drag racing that allowed 13-to-
16-year-olds to bracket-race street cars. So
I bought the Vette, named her Lucy (because
everybody loves Lucy), and immediately
took her to the track.
One time down the strip is all it took.
I knew this was what I wanted to do. Fast
forward four years, and Lucy and I have
added a new sport: autocross, which the
C4 Corvette was built for.
I love the world of racing, but I kept my
feminine side active as captain of the varsity
cheerleading squad at my high school.
With racing and cheerleading, I got the best
of both worlds, and that’s something I plan
to carry over past my graduation, which was
last May. I’ve applied to Belmont Abbey College
in North Carolina, where I hope to study
motorsports management. I’d have the opportunity
to cheer there as well. Best of all,
there’s a four-lane drag strip, zMAX Dragway,
right down the street from the college.
For now, I’ll continue to race with the
Texas Muscle Car Club Challenge and the
Lone Star Corvette Club. I have a big support
base through my family, as well as 13
sponsors who keep me going. What more
could I ask for? Well, nitrous…?
