DRIVER BIO - Dani Ferrara

HOME TRACK: Portland International Raceway, OR


2014 SCCA Pacific Northwest Challenge STU Champion
Currently racing a Spec Miata along the West Coast.

Dani became involved in racing in 2007 as Crew Chief for her dad. Serving in this important role gave her insight into the sport and grew her interest in becoming a driver. During this time she studied racing: she was always listening and watching to pick up on anything she could learn knowing that it would benefit her in the future. It took a few years for Dani to get in the driver's seat, but once she did there was no turning back. She is continuously developing her skills as a driver and her knowledge in business as she seeks out opportunities and partners to help her achieve her dreams.

FAVORITE FORTUNE: "Nothing can keep you from reaching your goals. Do it."

HER INSPIRATION: "My dad," she says. "He is the one who got me interested in racing and he has supported me throughout this journey. He is a fantastic racer himself, and he believes in me. I wouldn't be doing this if it weren't for my dad!"

OTHER: Dani recently graduated with her Bachelors of Science degree in Marketing from Portland State University.
