Proud On The Track

May 6, 2022

Karisha Shanelle’s Z Story: My Z was a birthday dream come true.  

My daily at the time was turning into more of a project car.  Every time I found aftermarket parts, the modifications were taking more and more time to complete. I needed to find a new car pretty fast to keep up with my needs.

Like any new age romance, I found her profile online.  I left work early on my birthday, and headed to see my beautiful 2009 370z Touring for the first time in person.  After the test drive, I absolutely had to have her.  Finalized all the paperwork, and got to celebrate the rest of my birthday with dinner and an interstate drive home.  

Present day, I’m just like anybody else that gets a reliable daily driver — I have started slowly doing modifications to it.  My passion for cars was at an all time high when I started getting into drag racing and autocross racing.  

I’m currently autocross racing once a month locally, and excited to start competing at bigger events across the state.  Over the next few years, I will be adding more modifications to my 370Z.  I will also be working on improving my course handling skills as a driver.

Thank you all so much for honoring me with being the first woman featured. I look forward to making you all proud on the track, and sharing future cars with you.
