Q. What advice would you give other females looking to get into the sporting world (which is usually dominated by men)?
A. Keep your head up and don't listen to what people say, 99% of the time they are just scared that they will be shown up by a girl. One of my motto's is if they ain't talking about you, you aren't doing something right. If you are in a wreck it's going to be all your fault because you are a girl, if you actually are a great driver and get a good ride, it's not your abilities that got you there, it's because you are a girl and you have "the best equipment out there". So don't listen to the haters and NEVER listen to someone if they tell you that you can't do something.

Join us next week for a Fast Lap with Claire B. Lange, Host SIRIUS NASCAR radio.
