At only 4 months old I was introduced to racing and 26 years later here I am living my dream racing full time in a Modified. I wasn’t your typical start up racer as I didn’t race go carts or start racing at a real young age, but I did learn all about racing and what it takes to become a racer by living in the race shop and working on the cars with my father each night. I started my racing career at the age of 18, wasn’t full time but was able to race a few races here and there. It wasn’t until I turned 19 when I was able to start racing full time in the Midwest Modified division. Now here I am at the age of 26-years-old racing in one of the toughest divisions in WISSOTA traveling across the Midwest working my way up the ranks in the racing world. I became the first ever female driver to ever win a feature in the ultra-competitive WISSSOTA Modified division in 2017. I am a driver for Ward’s Racing team, which is owned and operated by my father Scott Ward. Each and every weekend you will see the father-daughter racing team working and supporting each other on and off the track. Along with racing with my father I learned a lot about not only what it takes to be a racer, but what it takes to inspire others to race. Each and every racing season there are goals of winning races, but my biggest goal each and every night is to finish strong and inspire my fans to NEVER GIVE UP on your dreams!
