I love cars, the faster the better.  I've been blessed to be able to attend the Firestone Grand Prix which is held annually here in streets of downtown St. Petersburg, FL.  They actually turn the streets of the city into an amazing race track where the Formula 1 cars race around the track for a full weekend and drive for the grand prize.  It's such a fun event.  If you ever have a chance to attend, it's a must see.  It's held in the month of March.


It just so happened that I met JoAnne Jensen on the first day of the races.  JoAnne is our guest today. JoAnne tells us how she got into the motorsports business and how she rose up the ranks in a predominately male industry (and how you too can get involved in the business).    


JoAnne Jensen became involved in Motorsports in 1981 as a volunteer Marshall - a flagger, you know, the ones wearing the white suits on the corners.  It has been her good fortune to work with Formula 1, The World Endurance Cup, NASCAR, Indy Car and its earlier predecessor groups. 


She works for two sanctioning bodies:  Indy Car – The Premiere Open Wheel/Formula Car Group and IMSA -The Premiere Sports Car Racing Group.  She is a nationally licensed racing steward and has been a registrar and race chairman.


Check out JoAnne's interview and get inspired to rev up your engine and add some excitement  into your life.   So ladies and gents, start your engines, on your mark, get set, go!
