“A proclaimed adrenaline junkie, Shea Holbrook began racing cars as a teenager. Born and raised in Florida, Shea’s racing career is a family business with her mom and dad supporting her every step of the way under their team, Shea Racing. In 2014, Shea was a recipient of the WSF Women in the Winner’s Circle Project Podium, a grant that serves female race car drivers from all forms of racing, including go kart, quarter midget, drag racing, sports car racing, oval track racing, etc. with financial support.
Shea lives by the quote ‘Fear is a state of mind; will is an action taken.’ As a fierce competitor on the track, she genuinely shows that where there’s a will there’s a way. Shea recently took a detour from the asphalt to the Bonneville Salt Flats as a pace driver to help set a land speed bicycle record; WSF caught up with Shea to talk about her experience in Bonneville and why she so openly advocates for the WSF and its mission.”
