Tina is 30 years old and lives in Centre, Alabama. She is married and has a 8 year old son. Tina started racing powder puff races in 1995 in her husband's dirt track car. In 95 and 96 Tina entered in 5 powder puff races and won all 5 races. In the Winter of 1996, Tina purchased her own car so she could run a full schedule in the men's division at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Fyffe, Alabama. In 18 starts in 97 she had 6 top 5 finishes, 11 top 10 finishes and only one
DNF. In her rookie season, she finished in the top 10 in points. In 1998 Tina began racing at Green Valley Speedway in Gadsden, Alabama. After 6 races in her dirt car, Tina lead the division in points with 3 wins, 1 2nd, 1 3rd, and 1 7th place.
With the purchase of a new Pontiac Grand Prix asphalt late model car, Tina's time and energy turned to asphalt racing. On Friday, June 12th, Tina ran her 1st asphalt race at Birmingham International Speedway in Birmingham, Alabama. Many Alabama driving legends such as Bobby Allison, Donnie Allison, Neil Bonnett and Davey Allison started their Winston Cup Careers there. Tina attended Finish Line Racing School at Lanier Raceway in July of 1998. To quote Mike
Loescher, Chief Driving Instructor: "Tina has the ability to drive a race car at any level of competition that she desires. Now she needs to go get that valuable seat time and sponsorship and she will go far. She is a very smooth driver."
For 2000 Tina plans to run the complete 17 race schedule NASCAR Slim Jim All Pro Series and will also run a few NASCAR Goodys Dash series races.
Tina's ultimate long term goal is to race in the Nascar Winston Cup Series.
Tina is always willing to make personal appearances for her sponsors and to display her car at sponsor events. Tina feels that the relationship between a driver and their sponsor should be a positive benefit to both sides.
