It seems to me that keeping track of Shelina’s comings and goings this past month plus has been a kin keeping track of a 9yr-old chugging on a 2 liter bottle of Mt Dew. Few, I fear are up to the task. Thankfully Shelina has taken the time to give us one of her updates, complete with pictures and everything. Now, this is her news letter and I am leaving the information you need to sign up for it yourself, if you wish. Here you go:
My Wall Street Journal Feature & Race Recaps! ….(and I broke my phone)
I have some updates! First order of business is that I broke my phone when I was in Daytona, on my way to Qatar, so I’ve been without a phone for a month. If you’ve tried to contact me and I did not respond, I apologize, that’s why. I just got home and I’ll have my new phone tomorrow, so you can reach me again.
Second order of business is my updates for this month! One highlight is that the Wall Street Journal featured me in a video! They spent a couple of days with me at the ranch and at the all-girls Girlz MotoCamp that I put on in Petaluma. It’s a huge accomplishment and stepping stone to me to have the Wall Street Journal take interest in what I’m doing as a Pro Racer and entrepreneur in the Motorsports industry.

Asphalt & Rubber took interest in the camps as well, and with our next camp just around the corner, A&R grabbed ahold of our most recent camp video for an awesome article this week.
Also just got back from one of the most awesome months of my racing career, jam packed with travel and riding with and learning from some of the fastest guys in the world!
Started out a month ago at Kenny Roberts’ ranch, riding with Kurtis Roberts and learning how much I don’t know! I picked up a lot from Kurtis and was able to put some of it to use the very next week on big bikes. My first real Flat Track experience and I raced a 450 on the Savannah Half Mile! Big thanks to Michelle Disalvo and Aaron Yates for coming to help me out. I had a great time racing with BMC Racing and Mitch Harvat, and I brought home several trophies, 2nd, 3rd and two 4ths!! I’m Hooked!
The high banking of Daytona was next, on my AMA Pro Vance & Hines Harley Davidson! It’s the best race I’ve had so far on the Harley, in that I battled with some guys I had never been able to keep up with (and I came out in front of that pack… which the boys are not happy about ;) I am stoked on our 14th place finish and we were not too far behind the lead pack of 11, who all finished within 0.6 seconds of eachother!
After Daytona I was off to Qatar to race my first Night Race and it was during Moto GP weekend, so even more thrilling!! We had a lot of trouble with suspension in Qatar and things were getting lost in translation with my team, but we still came out in 4th place in the LARRS race with my QMMF Racing Team. Another highlight in Qatar was getting to ride the Arabian desert on Quads with some of the rest of the QMMF Racing Team.After Qatar I made a quick decision to head to Spain to train with some fast Aussie racers; Anthony West (Moto 2 rider), Alex Cudlin, (World Endurance Racer), up-and coming Lawson Walters, and their trainer, Bernie Hatton. We raced Go Karts and rode in the Spanish Dirt and I had an absolute blast.And some Pictures:My first real (big bike) Flat Track experience, with BMC Racing and Mitch Harvat, brought me several trophies, 2nd, 3rd and two 4ths!!
