Background

A street rider since 1995, in 2008 I took a 2-up ride at a Grattan track day event and was hooked. Found my first track bike, an '89 Yamaha FZR600, in a barn. We cleaned her up and I've been racing her since. I added a Honda CBR600RR to the stable in 2012, and also ride an Suzuki SV650 with an endurance team.

Highlights

After only a year of track riding, I raced the entire 2010 CCS Midwest season, earning a 2nd Overall in Femmoto in two different regions, and a 7th Overall in Lightweight F40. In late 2010, I was invited to join an all-girls CMRA endurance team.

In 2013, I was one of the first motorcycle racers, and one of only two women, selected to race the 1st Annual MotoCup Grand Prix at Kansas Speedway during the nation's largest Bikers for Babies March of Dimes charity event.

Goals

My goal for next year is to improve my lap times across the board. I'm working with a great coach, AMA pro racer Ron Mears, and have utilized video footage to analyze everything from my body position to shift points. I've been steadily dropping seconds, but since we are adding more dates to our 2014 race/track day/event calendar, I plan to kick it up a notch.
