About Lauren

My love for racing started when I was 11. My dad bought me a go-kart just to ride around our back ally in. He asked me if I would like to try it out on a race track and I said yes. We found a few asphalt tracks out in Ohio and made the drive. My first track was in Columbiana Ohio and I tested out the road course and discovered I wasn't very good at it. So we tested the oval track they had instead and my love for the sport lit fire. I've had many go-kart wins over the next few years including tracks like Columbiana Speedway, Barberton Speedway, Fremont Raceway Park, and Circleville as part of the Buckeye Karting Club in Ohio. I've also raced at Jennerstown Speedway and Beaver Run Sports Complex, and around the age of 13 I wanted to move up. We found the Allison Legacy Series which toured all over the east coast. I just turned 14 which was the required age and we bought our first stock car. I did pretty well in this division and then again was given the chance to move up when the series cancelled. I had a brief Late Model debut in 2006 but had an unfortunate accident totaling our equipment. I got my hands on my dads old Street Stock which was built in 1999 and have called this division my home since. I have 10 Street Stock wins under my belt currently and most of my success came over the passed 4years. I was a championship contender at Jennerstown Speedway in 2008 and finished 3rd in points that year. The track had closed and laid dormant for 5years. So we travelled to our other home track at Motordrome Speedway where I struggled to get the groove but finally got it landing myself 3 wins there in 2015. Sadly this track closed as Jennerstown Speedway reopened. In 2016 I earned many heat wins and 3 feature wins and was also a contender for the championship until a personal car accident cut my season short. I finished 10th in points. Currently in the 2017 season I have 3 heat wins and 1 feature win and I am a contender for this years championship. My goal for this year is to win the championship and become the first female to win a championship at Jennerstown Speedway in the Street Stock Division. For the 2018 season we will be competing with the Super Cup Stock Car Series.
