FAVORITE QUOTE/SAYING: “Never take life for granted because you never know when tragedy can
HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH AUTOMOBILES/MOTORSPORTS: My hubby, Donald Long “The
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED WITH AUTOMOBILES/MOTORSPORTS: 6 years
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT AUTOMOBILES/MOTORSPORTS: The best part other than fast cars is the
race family that you have for a lifetime.
WHAT IS YOUR BEST CAR/RACING/MOTORSPORTS RELATED MEMORY: When I had to yell at the
water box boy for kicking “The Fletcher Cox” off of the starting line with his own car. He looked at me
like I was crazy and I said listen here buddy, you will not kick my people off my starting line. Bottom
line was Fletcher was welcomed back with open arms. Actually, I love any time I get to go down and
stop the race because people just are not using their head. Guess that is why I am “The Boss.”
WHAT IS YOUR WORST CAR/RACING/MOTORSPORTS RELATED MEMORY: When I had to stop the race
to clear the starting line, got it cleared. Then one girl decided she wasn’t going to listen and I had to
jump in front of her to pull her back. In place having my own eyes burned from the flames that came
out from the bull horns. Then after the run she came after me and tried to throw down. Needless to
say, that did not happen.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR NEXT SEASON: Just to have three safe races, records set, and continue to
make my race family larger. You never know what is up the sleeves of BossX. I always have
something in the works that I try and keep as surprises.
WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES FOR REACHING YOUR GOALS: Staying positive, when there is so
much negative in the atmosphere. Best advice is to just keep your head held high and if someone
tries to be negative, just ignore it and believe that he or she is just jealous. I always believe that I am
only competing against myself and no one else.
ANY BIG MODS OR BUILDS GOING ON DURING THE OFF SEASON: Not sure, but it is possible that we
may have one of the daughters prepping for the new DXP Street class.
DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER HOBBIES OR PASSIONS: Bodybuilding is a passion of mine; I am in the gym
6-7 days a week for hours at a time. When we are on down time from race season, I am on the stage
competing in the teeniest bikini’s you will ever see.
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP SONGS FOR WHEN YOU ARE DOING CARS THINGS / RACING: I go back and forth
between ACDC, Johnny Cash, Kid Rock, and Big Bad Voo Doo Daddy’s. It all depends on the mood that
I am in.
IF YOU GOT A MILLION DOLLARS TOMORROW, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT? Hands down, I would
split it between my mom/dad and Donald’s.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE BLOGS, WEBSITES OR SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES THAT YOU
FOLLOW? If it has to do with Cars, Dance (Ballet), or Bodybuilding I am following it.
ADVICE TO OTHER WOMEN IN MOTORSPORTS OR WOMEN INTERESTED IN GETTING INVOLVED IN
MOTORSPORTS: Don’t be intimidated by how many men are in the sport. Make them intimidated by
you. Take charge and be in control.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH THE CAR CHIX COMMUNITY: Love being you and
don’t let anyone ever devalue you or tell you that you can’t do something. Anything is possible with a
positive mindset. Life is too short not to.
