My name is McKenna Haase and I’m a 23 year old racecar driver from Des Moines, Iowa. I first fell in love with racing after accidentally meeting NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne in a shopping mall when I was in 3rd grade. I began racing sprint cars primarily in the Knoxville Championship Cup Series at Knoxville Raceway when I was 17, and in my second season I became the first female to win a sprint car feature at Knoxville in 114 years. In 2018, I picked up my 5th career feature win at Knoxville Raceway. My mission since I began operating my own race team at the age of 13 has been to work in unison with partners, fans, and teams to create not only a winning race team, but a race team focused on honesty, excellence, and integrity both off and on the racetrack. I am committed to putting my partners first and strive to be a good advocate for them as well as my fans and fellow racers. Throughout my career I’ve gained seat time behind the wheel of outlaw karts, micro sprints, and sprint cars, as well as a little asphalt late model experience. Outside of racing I was a finance major at Drake University where was the president of the Drake Investment Club and was also a member of the CBPA Leadership Council, CBPA Service Committee, American Marketing Association, and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. I also own my own youth driver development program, Compass Racing Development LLC, and appeared on NBC’s American Ninja Warrior Season 11 and Fox Sports 1’s This Racing Life in 2019. Thank you to ALL of my followers for their support! I couldn’t do what I do without you!
That's some serious marketing potential!
