After winning at Pinks, all I can remember is wanting to jump out of my car, hug my Dad, my Mom and my boyfriend Tyler. I was so happy they were there for this life changing experience. We still talk about it to this day.
Winning, Pinks All Out

You would of thought somebody died, I and everyone else around me screamed like crazy! I couldn’t believe I got picked for the Top 16, let alone be the first person called, I was so excited!
She then became very nervous, as there were over 100 people in her 11 second bracket class. They gave them two qualifying rounds, then after everyone got to make their two qualifying passes, Rich made an announcement of who made the Top 16, hoping that Sarah had a chance. The first thing Rich said was Car “#72, Sarah Boyce.” Being apart of this event was life changing for her. Sarah didn’t think she could win something like this. She plans attend again in 2016, in hopes for another win.
I raced against guys who have been racing for many years, I was so proud that I never gave up. We still talk about it to this day!
