Amanda West Racing is a small, family-built race team from Eastern Connecticut. It started when I (Amanda) was just 5 years old with my dad as my crew chief. I hold many accomplishments from my go-karting years, including 6 championships, multiple feature wins and a few special awards. At 17 years old, I was given a special opportunity to jump from go-karts to an open-wheel modified. This was a dream come true for me, coming from a low budget family race team. After a few full-time seasons in, I have captured multiple top-10s and a handful of top-5 finishes. At 22 years old, I head into the 2022 race season with my focus on that first win. Aside from racing, I am working towards a Bachelor of Science in Nursing to fulfill my passion of caring for others.
