“Pressure is a privilege.” – Billy Jean King
Crashing out of her very first race in her streetcar, a Ford Pinto, almost ended her career before it got started.
During the 1978 season she attended the SCCA run offs in Atalanta. After blowing her engine and nearly missing the finals she realize being well prepared was just as important as desire.
