Past Race Info: I have been racing for 15 years. The MORE Powder Puff Race for the cure in 2006 was my first race ever. I drove my husbands’ single seat 1600 and I fell in love with racing. Shortly after my husband built me my own class 1600 car and I have raced ever since. Racing is a family event for my family. My daughter Kaylie started to race with me when she was 12 years old and is now driving her own class 9 car. I have also had my 55-year-old mother Debra Blake ride with me as a codriver in 2011. In 2012 I raced the morning race in class 1300 with my mom Debra Blake as a co-driver. Then I raced in class 1600 with my daughter Kaylie Meehan as my co-driver. In one day, we had three generations of women racing for a cure!   I have been blessed on to compete full time in the MORE series. Together my daughter Kalie and I won the MORE Class 1300 championship in 2016.  The reason this race is so important to me is because I have 20 women in my family who have had it, beat it or lost their life to Breast Cancer.  I have seen them fighting this terrible disease.  I made a vow that if I can pull my seatbelts tight, I will race as many laps as it takes to FIND A CURE for BREAST CANCER!  I have now completed in 14 out of the 15 MORE Powder Puff Race for a CURE. I only missed 2010 due to being 8 months pregnant with my son Logan. I am immensely proud that over the last this event has raised more than ½ a million dollars for Breast Cancer Research for the Cure.

How many years of racing? 15 years

How many years participating in this event? 14 years, I had to miss 2010 due to my pregnancy,

Championship: 2016 MORE Class 1300 Sportsman
