 Sarah Nelson


Sarah Nelson drives the #9 Hornet Class car.  Her home track is Algona Raceway but she can also be found racing at Hancock County Speedway, Buena Vista Raceway, Shelby County Speedway and I-35 Speedway.  She lives in Humboldt, IA.

Team members helping Sarah are:  Dad, Grandpa, Kelvin, Mom and Andy.   Her Dad is the car owner.  Sarah also thanks her sponsor, Nelson's Auto Sales.

Sarah started racing in 2005 in the Hornet Class at Hancock County Speedway because she's wanted to race since she was a little kid.  She's wanted to race like her Dad, Rick and grow up to be like Bill Elliott!  Her first win was in 2006 at Algona Raceway in the Hornet Class.  Career highlights include being the first woman, since 1994, to win a race at Buena Vista Raceway in '06 and finished 5th in Points at Algona Raceway for '06.

Her most exciting racing moment was racing in Alta for the second time and being the first woman to win at Buena Vista Raceway since '94.  She's most proud of going into the record book at Buena Vista Raceway.

Sarah's racing heroes are her Dad, Rick Nelson and Bill Elliott.

Of racing, Sarah says, "Shake n Bake!  "If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough" - Mario Andretti!".
