Only 4 days until the World Finals in Phoenix, Arizona! I am so excited to get back to racing after a long two months off. We have already sewn up the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series Division 2 Pro Eliminator Championship so my goal is to get a World Finals race win! Since there is no pressure about the championship, I am going to enjoy the race and soak it all in because it is going to be very bittersweet for me. This will be my last race in my open hydroplane boat because next year, I will be moving up into a capsule Pro Modified boat. The boat I have driven for the past four years has been amazing to me. It has taught me how to drive a full sized boat, kept me safe, and helped me win four championships. It will always be my first love so it’s kind of sad that I will be having to give it up. But, when one door closes, another one opens. A big door is opening for me in the 2016 season! I will be the only female professional drag boat driver in the United States, and I can’t express how excited I am to race the national circuit with many drivers who I’ve looked up to for years. I am grateful that I have been able to have the opportunity to have these dreams come true for me. I have my parents and my team to thank for giving me this opportunity. I have my family, friends, and my fans to thank for believing in me and continuing to support me throughout my career. 2016 is going to be a wonderful year for Shelby Ebert Racing! Please come out to Phoenix to watch me race in my last divisional race, and please come to a national event next year to watch my rookie season as a professional driver! Make sure to come by the pits and hang out with me for a bit and get a Star Card as well!
