last round, there was a lot of pressure
on my shoulders, and man was I
relieved to pull it off—such a great
DW: How was the track and the
SP: The track was amazing—sandy,
loamy, deep and rutted! It was a blast,
and the fans were so loud! It was cool
knowing a lot of our hometown side-by-side buddies were in the stands
cheering me on!
DW: How did your spec-class
Polaris RZR XP 1000 treat you? Was
this race a fun one?
SP: Well, James Hill and I shared the
same RZR, so it was taking on double
duty and had some issues during our
heats. It kept going into neutral, but
we ended up getting it figured out,
and the rest of the racing was a great
time. I had an awesome time battling
it out with Shelby Anderson and the
rest of the woman in my class!
DW: What are your racing plans for
the 2016 racing season?
SP: I will be racing Toyota of
Escondido’s Scion FR-S in Time Attack,
as well as returning to Terracross and
have some exciting plans to come
with Kawasaki in their Teryx!
DW: Are you happy with your
sponsors and supporters?
SP: James Hill and I had the best
supporters for Terracross you could
ask for, from Optimas Powersports
always being there for every one
of our races, from support of IMG
Motorsports and PRP Seats, who
supplied us great Seat Belts.
DW: Any other comments about
SP: Can’t thank Joe and Jeremy
enough at Terracross, as well as the
staff and mechanics for all the hard
work they put in! They really went
over and beyond for us! ❏
