When I first started racing, I never imagined that I would be where I am now.  I have been fortunate in my life to be able to explore a few different dreams until I finally found my way to my true passion, Racing. In 2019 I climbed into my first race car and strapped in, I knew at that moment I had found something special. This is my story, my passion, and my dream.

After my first season when I was working on the first race car I purchased, my grandma came up to me and gave me a quote to put on my car. At that moment I did not know who the quote originally came from but the meaning has stayed with me each and every day.

“Winners never quit, and Quitters never Win!”-Vince Lombardi

I painted that quote on my car and it stayed there for all 3 seasons that I raced that car. It was a reminder that even though getting that checkered flag is an amazing experience, there is more to it to me. It means learning, it means working hard, it means trying to be just a little better each time I get on track. It is a reminder to never quit, never give up, to follow my dream. Fast forward a few years and now I have moved up from a local track pure stock to an IMCA Stock Car and traveling to as many tracks to race as I can. Learning all I can about every aspect of my car, from how to drive it, how to set it up, how to work on it and how to work on my motors. Working to be someone people can look up to and can be encouraged by my drive and dedication. I’m pursuing my racing goals and not looking back, there is only one way to go and that is forward. 

This page is where I will be posting about my racing journey. My adventures, wins and losses. A place to share my pursuit and encourage others who may have a dream to pursue them. I have already raced my first race of 2023 in Yuma, Arizona at Winter Nationals. If you are interested in those results you can find them in my about us section. I just recently finished building the new body and placing the new wrap on the car.  I will share my journey as I go and wish the best to all. Welcome to my page. -Marie Curtis

“When you have a dream that you can’t let go of, trust your instincts, and pursue it.

But remember: Real dreams take work, they take patience, and sometimes they

Require you to dig down very deep. Be sure you’re willing to do that” – Harvey Mackay
