Driver Spotlight: Ariana Holsclaw

 

Ariana Holsclaw


Ariana Holsclaw is 21 years old and loves dirt track racing. She lives in Elkin, North Carolina. She grew up around racing. When she was only 2 weeks old her parents had her at the hometown track for the first race of the season. When she was 14 years old she started racing karts. She continued to race karts until she was 16 years old. She then moved up to a stock 4 cylinder at Friendship Motor Speedway in 2009. In her rookie year she finished 5th place in points. Every race she was in that season she was in the top 5. In the 2010-11 season she was unable to race after giving birth to her son. In 2012 she was right back in the stock 4 car and won the points championship at Friendship Motor Speedway.

Arianna shared this advice, "The most important things I've learned during my racing career is that hard work and consistancy really pays off. No matter how many people say you can't, you push yourself ten times harder to show them you can!!"

  1. How can one not believe her advice when she reflects it? Consistency with what you do is very challenging, I must say. Plus, there’s the added pressure the moment she earned a place in a race. I hope she wouldn’t be too hard on herself though. You’re doing great, Ariana! :) -->Mallory Clifford
