My name is Katie and I am one of four of the Great American Sweethearts. I played D1 basketball in college, and will always have a love affair with sports! My favorite thing about Texas Motor Speedway, other than the racin’ of course, is the FOOD...say it with me "Flamin’ Hubcap," yum! As far as outside the track, I love running, reading, hiking, spending time with my awesome family and anything active with my fur baby, MJ. She's a lollie (yes, I made that up, but it fits. Lab and Border Collie mix). My favorite driver is Dale Earnhardt Jr. because I think that looking up to someone who has had to deal with adversity in their life is a good thing. He’s been given a huge platform because of his success and I believe that he has handled it with dignity and poise. I can't wait to hang with my old friends and make some new ones this season. See y'all at the track!
My name is P.J. and this will be my second year as a Great American Sweetheart. I'm from a small town in Texas...no stop lights! Just a four way stop intersection. I'm a tomboy and grew up with two older brothers. I like to think anything the guys do, I can do...better! I’m a bit of a goofball and think a good sense of humor is a must. Laughing is the best. I’m always ready to hear a new joke if you have any! I love sports, speed, and anything outdoors. I also love sweets…mainly ice cream and cookies. Thankfully, I enjoy running too. When I start feeling a little guilty after too many sweets, I just run it off! Currently, I play on a women's soccer team…a little competition is always nice. That’s why I LOVE racing. I love being a part of the fans and interacting on race days...all the excitement and back and forth over who's going to win. I personally love me some Clint Bowyer. He feels like my kin folk! Can't wait ‘til next race weekend comes along! See y’all there!
My name is Hope and I'm one of the newest additions to the Great American Sweethearts. I grew up in Texarkana, Texas and I moved to Dallas to complete my college career at The University of North Texas where I graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising. I am now an owner of a nutrition club! I'm a published fitness model, sponsored athlete and I complete in bikini fitness competitions. I love Texas country, traveling, and a good cheeseburger! Racing has always been a part of my life; I remember always going to the dirt track to watch my uncle race! My favorite driver is Jimmie Johnson because he has a good attitude, he is a true competitor, and he's a great driver, duh!
I’m so excited to be a part of the Great American Sweethearts because I get to be a part of the sport! I love the excitement of the races and I can’t wait to meet the amazing fans!
I am a very outgoing and in my free time enjoy everything outdoors whether as a participant or spectator. I have been hunting since I was 6 years old and our family ranch is one of my favorite places to be. I love to fresh and saltwater fish and love all boating activities like wakeboarding and wakesurfing. I have participated in track, basketball and volleyball but my favorite current sport is beach volleyball in which I play annually in the Model Beach Volleyball Tournament in Miami.
I am a big foodie and love to eat!! In order to combat my passion for food, I participate in yoga/pilates and enjoy running outdoors. You will always find me listening to music, it pumps me up as well as helps me relax and escape for a little while. My iPod has all types of music from classical/jazz to rock. Of course my favorite thing to do is to throw on my cowboy boots and two step to some good ole country music. I am an equal blend of high heels and red lipstick to cowboy boots and a baseball cap.
I am passionate about the people of Liberia, Africa and their needs and have traveled there the last two years on mission bringing clean water to the entire country. I am also involved along with my family in education through buildings schools including the AAA Academy in Bong County, Liberia. I am new to racing but can't wait to meet my Texas Motor Speedway family!
