Ashley Parlett

Type of Racing: Open Wheel

Race Series: Ashley currently races with the United Racing Club. With this club of 360cu.in. sprintcars, Ashley and her team travel up & down the east coast. The club reaches tracks in states such as Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, Iowa, Michigan, and Canada.

Introduction: Ashley first developed an interest in auto racing when she was thirteen years old. She simply went to a race as a spectator and truly found a love for the sport. She was fortunite enough to have parents who enjoyed the sport as much as she did.

Ashley and her family, sign painters by trade, soon began racing go-karts, micro-sprints, and then 360 sprintcars. Ashley's love for the sport is unlike any other. If a random weekend should occur when she isn't scheduled to race, you will find her at a local dirt track either watching or wrenching on another racecar.

Current Season: Ashley not only enjoys wheeling racecars, she also truly enjoys working on them as well. She has always believed that in order to be the best you have to work harder then the best on or off of the racetrack. So lest there be any confusion...you can bet Ashley is up to her elbows in grease and loving every moment.

One winter evening while building her sprint cars for the 2005 racing season Ashley found herself with a question on how she could turn her passion into a future. After a long conversation with World of Outlaws driver and close friend Jeff Shepard she decided to move to Charlotte, North Carolina (AKA Race City, USA) to chase her dream of being a champion in the sport she loved.

After her move Ashley soon became a regular throughout the Craftsman Truck & Busch Series Garages as a suspension & brake specialist for several teams including Xpress Motorsports (#16 NCTS driven by Mike Bliss). With her mechanical career moving forward Ashley soon became troubled by her minimal seat time while in Charlotte. After an impressive run in a sprint car race Ashley received a phone call from Brack Maggard Racing and was told to be at Atlanta Motor Speedway the next day.

In Atlanta Ashley was approved with high honors to race an ARCA race the following week at Toledo Speedway in the #96 car owned by Andy Hillenburg and funded by Brack Maggard. The race was an impressive debut, it was Parlett's first ever race on asphalt. Like most racers the driver was not satisfied with the outcome.

Ashley strives everyday to get back behind the wheel of a racecar and has yet to regret her move to Charlotte. Ashley has won two very prestigious awards since her move: She was awarded 2005 TOYOTA Moving Forward Award & 2005 Glamour Risk Taker of the Year Award by popular vote. She was also recognized by the readers of Stock Car Racing Magazine for her mechanical ability in the NCTS garage.

After her race in the ARCA series she left Xpress Motorsports to focus on her driving once again. Ashley currently works for Andy Hillenburg at Fast Track High Performance Racing School as a chief instructor. Here Ashley gets to be behind the wheel of a racecar on a weekly basis, honing her skills as a driver. In her busy schedule Ashley has also managed to get the opportunity to work behind the scenes and also as an actress on an upcoming film.

Where her future lies is story that is yet to written but if you know Ashley she is leaving her options open for only big things: Actress, Stunt Driver, Racing Champion, Crew Chief? the end..I can assure you will be a clincher!

Racing Goals: Ashley's heart and soul is in this sport. She would tell you that she would drive a cardboard box if she had to. Her dream is to be a professional racecar driver of any kind, but her heart will always be in open wheel. If Ashley is never given the opportunity to professionally compete, you can bet she will still be involved in the sport that she loves in some way.

Personal: Since Ashley has been one of the few women sprint car drivers on the east coast, she is well aware of the importance of public relations. She has done all of her own public relations since she was 17 years old. When she graduated high school, she attended Chesapeake College for two semesters studying Public Relations and Communications. She speaks well at public engagements and works hard in the gym to make sure she represents herself as a competitive athlete.

Special Thanks to: Ashley would like to especially thank those who have encouraged her along the way both mentally and financially.
