Kercie campaigns the bright pink paint scheme on all of her cars and racing related materials in honor of her aunt, who passed away from Breast Cancer ten years ago. This has become one of her trademarks, along with her number "17" which adorns all her cars.
Kercie understands the importance of women having the same respect in racing as men, even though she has never experienced any negative actions from her competitors over her gender. She wants to continue to be a voice and an example to the public and her fans that gender plays no part in racing. Women are just as capable and successful in racing, and life, as long as you work hard and are dedicated to doing your best.
Kercie's ultimate goal is to drive professionally at the NASCAR Monster Cup Level. In order to reach that milestone, Kercie will be working in different areas of her career over the next four years. Kercie will be applying to Driver Development programs to help her develop her driving skills and get much needed experience. She applied for the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program in October 2018 and should know in early 2019 if she was a successful applicant. Other programs that are being considered include the Kulwicki Driver Development Program, Lynn St. James's Winner Circle Foundation Grant, as well as a new program being introduced at Madera this year.
In 2019, Kercie will compete in the Junior Late Model Division at the 1/3 mile Madera Speedway, located in Madera, California. Kercie is planning on competing in nine nationally televised races on MAVTV.
