Gunning for Danica? Texas cheerleading captain making waves in racing
Lindsey Adams is 19, has a thing for manicures, designer clothing, and she's the captain of her school's cheerleading squad. She's also a burgeoning threat on the racetrack, having just won a regional Formula Mazda race at Texas World Speedway late last month, on top of achieving some success kart racing nationally. In fact, her racing career is looking so bright that Adams is putting her higher education plans on-hold to pursue driving. Little wonder then, that donning helmets and mixing it up on the track is in Adams' blood. Both Adams' father and grandfather raced, the latter going on to build race cars for some three decades in Dallas after having children.
Admittedly, virtually every female enjoying any sort of success in the racing world is being labeled as 'The Next Danica'... but what's to say Adams doesn't have a shot?
