We featured Brianna in August 2013, shortly after Sprint Car Girls was born. She drew special interest, being an accomplished motocross champion before an injury brought a premature end to one career and kicked off another in mini sprints. One would think they next logical step would be a sprint car or maybe a midget, but not for Brianna. She has always done things big, and the next step of her career has brought big shoes to fill- literally.
2015 has found Brianna behind the wheel of the Scooby Doo monster truck with Monster Jam, the worldwide leader of monster truck racing. So how does a 24-year cosmetologist from Central Illinois end up behind the wheel of a 10,000-pound monster truck you might ask?
It's a simple recipe really. When word Brianna's tremendous attitude, reputation and skillset, along with a passion for big trucks, made its way through the motorsports grapevine to one of the sport's veteran drivers, Brianna received a phone call and the rest is history, as they say. In the summer of 2014, Brianna completed the #MoreMonsterJam training camp in preparation for her debut behind the wheel of Scooby Doo.
Brianna kicked off 2015 by showing everyone why she belongs in the Monster Jam world,picking up the win in the racing portion of her first show behind the wheel at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, NH. She then followed up her success at her next events in the Deep South at the Jefferson Convention Complex in Birmingham, AL, with three more victories, further cementing herself into the Monster Jam world!
Next up for Brianna is the biggest of all her challenges thus far, as she will be moving from the smaller arena shows to the big stage as she heads to Toronto's Rogers Centre for her first stadium show with Scooby!
While everyone within Sprint Car Girls agree that this is a bit off-topic for our normal happenings with the group, we thought everyone would enjoy seeing someone who has passes through our graces hit the big time and we hope you agree! If you attend a Monster Jam show Brianna is competing at, be sure to stop by and say hello, just don't be surprised when she schools the boys!
