Hello there! My name is Kilee, I am a college student studying Elementary Education in Washington State. I’ve spent the majority of my early life in Northern Idaho where my family lives. In my spare time I like to read, pick huckleberries, ride horses and travel. I have been to 5 countries and 25 states, and am planning to travel more as we speak! My interest in NASCAR started before I can really remember. My momma has always been a fan and I followed in her footsteps, my baby blanket even has NASCAR fabric! I even once spent many weeks in my garage building a refrigerator box stock car that I would ‘drive’ with the field on Sunday.
Most recently, my momma and I travelled 2,356.8 miles to Talladega to watch the Spring Race for my birthday! Dega is a once in a lifetime race and I would most definitely recommend any fan to go! Along with being a NASCAR fan, I also love to watch the Professional Bull Riders (PBR.) I think that being a well educated person in all aspects of life/sports will always help you relate with others of all personalities.
I have had a lot of very unique experiences from sharing Mass with Pope Francis, touring Auschwitz, visiting the White House and Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, being on the set of Good Morning America and even seeing Les Misérables on Broadway.
Interviewing Kyle Petty (pictured) and the Victory Junction Charity Ride participants was my favorite memory. The Charity ride has a very special place in my heart and one day I hope to volunteer and work with some of their kids. Kids are the future of our world and one at a time I want to influence and be a mentor to as many of them as I can.
Hendrick Motorsports has not only my momma’s favorite driver, Jimmie Johnson, but also my favorite driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr, and that is why I chose to report on them on a weekly basis. I want to portray an unbiased opinion so that all readers can enjoy every piece of my work.
My ultimate goal is to have fun while informing others of the awesome sport of NASCAR! I look forward to seeing you at the next track!!
