Shannon McIntosh is a nationally recognized racecar driver with over 20 years of impressive on track racing accomplishments. Her diverse experience ranges from Quarter Midgets and (dirt) Micro/Mini Sprints to USAC Midgets, (dirt) Late Models, INDYCAR’s USF2000 Series and most recently, the ARCA Racing Series. She has been recognized nationally and globally by outlets such as ESPN, ESPNw, Mashable.com (Top 5 "Must-Follow Athlete on Social Media") & Sports Illustrated and has represented brands such as Mark Cuban’s Cyber Dust app, TrueCar.com, Alpinestars, Arai Helmets and Tag Heuer watches.
I was immediately impressed with Shannon on two fronts. First it was very clear that she could race. What Shannon could do – and I do not say this facetiously – is pass cars. Equally important was the way she interacted with USAC officials, sponsors and other drivers. To coin a phrase – she gets it.

I was impressed with Shannon's knowledge and racing background. More importantly, the passion, intensity and confidence she spoke with was clearly at a professional level. Her talent and work ethic will allow her to adapt quickly and her off track abilities will win her over tremendous support in short order.

I met Shannon and instantly recognized the key ingredients for a successful driver in her. I look for skills, desire and marketability. In today's world it takes all three. I see that in Shannon.

The lessons of McIntosh's rise go beyond her looks and marketability, both strong in an age when survival within racing requires business savvy along with driving skill. Yes, she's more complex. She has her past to thank for it.
Shannon is someone I feel we will be hearing about in the next few years and I think she has the potential to move far up the ladder in racing.
