F.A.S.T Profile: Meet Sarah Montgomery
My name is Sarah Montgomery and I am a recent graduate from The Louisiana at Lafayette with a degree in marketing. I am very thrilled to accept the sales and marketing position here at FAST because my life revolves around racing! When I was ten years old, my parents brought me to my first ever race, an Indycar race in Dallas, TX. Danica Patrick was one of the drivers and she truly inspired because she was doing extremely well against all of the guys. Not only was that inspirational for me, but also the smell of the fuel, the burning tires, and the atmosphere was something that was unlike any other.
Once returning home, I became obsessed with everything “racing.” After much begging, my parents finally caved in and bought me a dirt oval go-kart. I was so excited for my first race, I put the kart into the wall! All jokes aside, I raced karts for about 5 years and won 3 overall track championships and received two 2nd place championships. From there, I moved into Spec Miata racing and competed at that level for about 4 years, won a few championships, then in 2014 moved into the Battery Tender Mazda MX-5 Cup Series presented by BFGoodrich tires. In 2014 and 2015 I placed top 10 in the points championship and won the prestigious “Spirit of Mazda” award from Mazda in 2015 and 2016!
I am thrilled to be working in the racing industry as it will allow me to meet new people who love this sport just as much as I do. I am still heavily involved in racing and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
See you at the track!
