“It’s always been, "I want to be the best driver, hands down. “He’s trained me to figure out what I’m doing wrong. That’s with everything in life. You figure out what you’re doing wrong and fix it so we can be better next race.”
Her lineage and her gender have made Mekaylah a driver who other competitors want to beat, she has used that to motivate her even more in transitioning into Formula Fords. “As soon as you get on the track, they expect you to be the best person, plain and simple, No one will treat you differently as soon as you get on the track. No one will drive differently, even though sometimes they drive me a little harder because I’m a girl and they don’t want a 14-year-old girl beating them. "Mekaylah"
