Olive’s love for competition, thrill seeking and athletics started at a very young age. Many girls begin organized sports as co-ed. This was no different for Olive. It wasn’t enough for her to be the best girl, she had to be the best period. Best skills, most physical and always the FASTEST!
It was no surprise when Olive fell in love with driving fast, the mechanics of a car and playing in the dirt. Olive emerged into the racing scene in 2019 participating in the Lucas Oil Short Course Regional Series Junior 2 Class in both California and Arizona. In 2020 she emerged into the Lucas Oil National Series Junior 2 Class, achieving two second place finishes.
Last year Olive participated in Great American Short Course Series Junior 2 class achieving again two second place finishes. Throughout her years of short course dirt racing, Olive has trained and participated in karting, club soccer, cross country and track. Next up for Olive is desert racing. Many thanks to SinFab-Racing for their design and fabrication of her upcoming Polaris 1000.
