Taylor Ferns is an accomplished racecar driver, third-year law student, and recognized business professional. Throughout her 21-year racing tenure, she has won numerous races, championships, awards, and set records that do not only pertain to her gender, in a diverse portfolio of racecars, and on varying race surfaces. As a United States Auto Club (USAC) champion, Taylor has carved a name for herself within the open-wheel ranks including, but not limited to, being the youngest female driver to win a sprint car race at 14 years old, becoming the first female to win USAC midget and sprint car races at a multitude of racetracks, being the second female to ever win a USAC championship, having the most USAC Silver Crown starts by a female, and being the first (and only!) female to podium in USAC’s 51-year Silver Crown history. The latter record she intends to break by winning. Aside from some of her motorsport’s accomplishments, Taylor has gone on to pursue academia by attaining a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance and Economics from Grand Valley State University where she graduated cum laude, a Master of Business Administration from Wayne State University, and is currently enrolled at Wayne State University Law School. For five years, Taylor worked at The Sam Bernstein Law Firm in an Operations Director role where she dedicated her time to elevating her position by applying a lot of what was instilled in her at a young age: grit, persistence, and vivaciousness. Over the years, Taylor’s perspective of the motorsport’s world, and her placement in it, has evolved. She now recognizes the power and greater meaning behind being a female in a male-dominated trade. With that, she has made it a personal mission to give back to a sport she is so passionate about by mentoring younger girls interested in racing. Taylor is also an active member of Women in Motorsports North America, regularly takes part in professional speaking engagements regarding women in racing, is a contributing writer to SPEED SPORT / Sprint & Midget Magazine, acts as an ambassador for a number of companies including Skip Barber Racing School, Hoosier Tire, and CarIQ, and founded The Safety Bank by The Taylor Ferns Foundation which is an organization set-up to help provide adequate safety gear to the masses through donations from those with greater access to product(s).
