I n many ways Cassie Thain seems like a regular teenager. She is fifteen years old. She lives in California and plays softball after school. But she also races in her Outlaw Sprint Go Kart on a race track every Saturday. And she wins.
Cassie started racing when she was ten years old, but her first driving experience took place when she was only two! 'She's been driving on my knee since she was two years old,' says her dad, Mike. 'She used to love to sit on my lap and steer the car down the road...and she was good at it.' Cassie's father introduced her to driving. But it was her grandfather who helped her discover her love of racing. Cassie's grandpa has had a huge influence on her life. He is her idol and also her coach. She is named after him (his name is Casey) and she was born on his birthday. Needless to say, they have a very special bond.
'My grandpa used to race too,' says Cassie. We found out about these Mini-World of Outlaw cars, and he took me to the track to see them. Then he said, 'Well, do you want one of these?' We were interested in buying a car, so we took it out. And you know, I wasn't scared of it, so I just kind of jumped in.'
Cassie is known for her smooth and fearless driving. Which is not easy when you're racing a bunch of grown men. She doesn't have time to be scared though. She's too busy thinking about how she can race better, and dreaming about her next victory. Cassie races three different kinds of cars, Outlaw Karts, Modified Midgets and Legends cars. She drives them in different kinds of races.
Cassie says that driving felt totally natural from the very beginning, and her family agrees. Her father remembers, 'The first time she ever drove the car in a race, she'd had just one small practice in somebody's little field. She raced the car, she set fast time (the best) and finished second in the main race. The second time she raced, she won.'
It's a pretty amazing feeling to be the best at something you love. 'I love racing,' says Cassie,' for the speed, the intensity.. and the winning.' She would race every day if she could. And she does a lot of winning. Of course, racing isn't all about trophies and wins. It's a lot of hard work. 'I had to grow up really quick,' she says. 'Racing is an older sport.' Her father agrees. 'When you're a little girl racing against men, you've got to be tough. She is.'
She has also been determined and very brave. Racing is exciting, but it can also be dangerous. Cassie doesn't get hurt often, but the accidents she does have are big. 'This year, I had one pretty bad accident,' she says. 'We had just gotten the white flag, which means there is one lap to go. We went into the first turn and I tried to pass the car that was in first place. After I passed it, the car drove into me and I went end over end and flipped...I got hurt pretty bad. And I had another race after that! Some people offer to drive for me, with my number on their car. But I was determined to do well, so I had to go out, and I ended up winning the next race.'
Whew! That takes guts, and a lot of commitment. But Cassie loves racing more than anything else, so the hard work and the sacrifices are choices she's willing to make. Her advice to girls is very direct, and she means every word. 'Set your goals high,' she says. 'Aim for the unexpected and it will come.' Ride on, Cassie!
