Hi my name is Mattie Whitten. My
life's ambitions is to become a champion NASCAR driver.
I started racing quarter midgets when I was 11 years
old. The unique part of this story is none of my family
or friends have ever raced or been racing. I played
soccer like most girls from 4-11. Then one day I told my
Mom and Dad that I didn't want to play soccer anymore.
My Mom proceeded to put me in every other sport and
somehow we ended up at Centennial Airport in Centennial,
CO trying out a quarter midget race car. After doing a
couple of laps people said I was a natural.
The next thing you know I'm racing quarter midgets and
my Mom and I are driving to places like Ellicot CO,
Pueblo CO, Erie CO, Billings MT, and finishing my Last
season with a race in Las Vegas NV where I qualified 3rd
in the A Main.
All of the people that follow and read this will
understand how racing can change your whole outlook on
life. For me competitive racing is an opportunity to
learn and experience how to deal with rapid change,
adversity, defeat and success.
My racing experience has helped to develop personal
skills that I will need for the rest of my life. Most
important my racing experience has taught me to
appreciate all the supportive people in my life. For
without their unwavering support my ambitions would
never have the chance to become a reality
In recognition of all the support that I have
received while racing competitively for the past 8 years
and to those who will support me in the future, I
dedicate this web page.
I have to start with my Mom and Dad, Wayne
& Kyle Rayburn, Steve
Carpenter, Joe Bellm, Rory Mallo, Joe Starr, Andy
Sbravatti, Steve Saykelly, Allan Duncan, Adam Shrove,
Dave & Don Worster, Steve and
Andre Wright, and all the people that I
have missed there is a place to say hi on the the Web
site... Thank you!
To all my sponsors that have kept the "Check Her
Racing" Team going; Metro Link Mortgage, Events by Dina,
American Humane Association, Asmus Auto Sales, P-(J)
Ranch, YiaYia, Economy Greek Foods, DBC Racing, and
Thanks to everyone that has helped me get here to
this point in my quest for a racing career. In closing I
would like to invite everyone to come watch a race...it
will be a thrill that will be hard to forget. Hope to
see you at the track.
I will be driving this year 2006 for the American Humane
Assocication. See my website to donate at
