A Fast Lap with Tiff Daniels

Today we would like to introduce you to Tiffany Daniels who drives in multiple racing circuits including the NASCAR Whelen-All American Series. Tiff's next race will be at1.What music have you recently put on your iPod?
I actually just updated my iPod with a variety of songs from top-20/pop to rock to country. Some of my favorite artists are Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, 3 Doors Down, and OAR.

2. What was the last movie you saw?
I honestly don't remember; I rarely go see movies in the theater, but some of my favorites are O Brother Where Art Thou, Steel Magnolias, A League of Their Own, and the Harry Potter movies.

3. What are your favorite TV shows?
This is a tough one - I don't watch too much TV but when I do, I am a total channel surfer. I like any of the NASCAR-related shows, of course, but I'll watch anything from HGTV to American Idol to House depending what I land on. However, I can never remember when any particular shows come on!

4. What other sporting teams/events do you follow?
I don't have too much time to follow anything closely, but my favorite teams/sports are Carolina Tarheels college basketball, Virginia Tech college football, the Carolina Panthers in the NFL, Atlanta Braves in the MLB, and Carolina Hurricanes in the NHL. I also love the Olympics and the X-Games!

5. What is one personal item you can not live without?
This one is easy - my racecar!

6. What are your favorite places to visit?
Other than the racetrack (my favorite that I've driven on might be Bristol, I also really like going to watch races at Lowe's), I love going to the beach, particularly the Caribbean or the Outer Banks of NC. I love the water, sand, and sun!

7. What is your favorite clothing brand?
A great pair of jeans is my favorite clothing item - it's easy to dress jeans up with a nice shirt and heels, or be completely comfortable in jeans and a T-shirt with flip-flops or tennis shoes. I shop in a variety of stores, mostly try to pick classic pieces that never go out of style, and try everything on before I buy it!

8. What is your favorite book or publication?
My favorite books are the GRITS Guide to Life, the Harry Potter series, and anything by Karen Kingsbury, who writes Christian fiction. I also read magazines varying from Circle Track and Speedway Illustrated to Shape and Cosmo.

9. What is your favorite activity to do in your off time?
I don't have a lot of down-time, but I make sure I fit in working out almost every day, and having some fun by go-karting with my brother or just going to dinner with friends. I also play a variety of sports, and right now I am on a volleyball team with a group of co-workers and friends.

10. What is your favorite cuisine?
I love traditional Southern food, which includes sweet tea (I don't think tea should even be made unsweetened). I also like eating fresh fruits and vegetables that are in-season, and I am generally not a very-picky eater when it comes to trying new things.

11. What advice would you give other females looking to get into the sporting world?
Stay true to yourself and stay focused on the things that you can control because nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it.
I also have a couple of quotes that I like to keep in mind:
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams." - Henry David Thoreau
"It's not the will to win, it's the will to prepare to win." - Coach Mike Smith
"It's not just a daydream if you decide to make it your life." - Train
