My name is Shaylene Abrey-Webster and I have grown up in a racing family. My dad, Ken Webster, and two brothers, Jesse and Kenny Webster, have all raced with “Webster Motorsports”. I started racing Jr. Dragsters when I was eight years old and instantly knew I would love the adrenaline of racing. After that, I started racing a Jr. Funny Car. Last year, when I turned 13, my dad got me off the dragstrip and onto the dirt oval with Legend Cars. He and I built our own “Training Track” on the acreage and I learned the technique of oval racing with his help. We decided that we wanted to give other kids a chance at racing who otherwise would not be able to, and we started a program called “Legends Racing”. This program is entirely self-funded, providing the cars, training and all the gear needed. Our program learns and practices at our “Training Track” and races at our local track, which has been very supportive. My confidence and skill has grown so much this year, I even raced with the adult drivers. If I got the sponsorship by Champion, it would ensure a future for our program.
