Permatex, Spray Nine

Nationality: American

Languages spoken: English

Height/weight: 5’4” / 120 lbs.

Education: Graduating from 9th grade in May

Hobbies: I am a competitive rock climber for USA Climbing, which is also great strength training for racing. I’m also very interested in aerospace (I’ve been to Spacecamp in Huntsville, AL three times) and have met a bunch of astronauts. I’m also SCUBA certified and enjoy studying marine biology. 

Current sports played: Rock climbing, soccer

Racing ties: Being from Orlando St. Pete is my home race and I expect to have a lot of friends and family at the race. My second ever car race was at COTA when I was 13 (it was in February and it was freezing!), and I did a one-day driver’s school at Mid-Ohio and also scored my first official pro podium there.

Best meal I can cook by myself: I’m 15 so it’s still a peanut butter and jelly sandwich 

Fears or pet peeves: Being from Florida, I’ve never gotten used to really cold weather

Interesting note about me:  I graduated from the Skip Barber Racing School (the old formula cars) when I was 12 and I climbed Mt. Kosciuszko (highest mountain in Australia, one of the seven summits) in a blizzard, which was not on purpose.

Racing goal: To be Formula One World Champion

Racing hero: Ayrton Senna
