Go cards with your sister and now you're the most successful woman and and racing history a lot of people I don't know how in the world. The that happened how to do it. You know I think the first thing that it starts way this is. Passion for something it starts with. You know having fun at something and you have to really enjoy it be able to have. The dedication and commitment that it takes to get to the top of of any thing you think you've changed. Racing and all. I guess I would say that. Women in racing as far as being really successful on a consistent basis. Someone to be able to do it for them you know didn't need someone to show that it can happen and you can. Run really well run with the guys and be very competitive and run up front. Also trying be that person. What do you tell especially young women who want to go into a field latest not racing.

And she says you're the first time as a child you were told you couldn't do something because of being a girl. I think tank Europe and in generation island that didn't say those kinds of things until I mean. I don't doubt that. People doubted me but don't say that than ever sent to -- You're very lucky. Whether I just ignore him on the really share but not work -- elective hearing. Another question from -- It's not racing what other sport would you have wanted to play and pursue -- -- My.
