Kristen has always had a need for speed and has loved cars and hot wheels since a very young age.
She grew up with dirt bikes, four wheelers and horses to satisfy that need until she could finally own a car of her own.
Her dad was always into cars and taught her how to work on them and had Camaros and Mustangs
but Kristen also had a “cool” uncle that rode motorcycles and collected and restored Corvettes.
This is where her love for Corvettes and motorcycles began. Kristen purchased her first motorcycle, a
Kawasaki ninja 636 at the age of 22. Around this same time Kristen played in the
Lingerie Football League and started doing bikini contests and getting more serious about modeling.
Kristen is extremely competitive and began winning most of her competitions which lead to
more modeling jobs and she started building her social media following.
Once Kristen finally saved up enough money, she purchased her dream car, a 2016 C7 Corvette
which she put a ton of love and money into. She also added “vette” to her IG name. Her internet popularity soared as all existing
Corvette pages started sharing her page.
People in the corvette community definitely know who R1VetteBabe is.
Kristen never had the money to race growing up but she was able to reach out to
Hubbell Racing (who races a dp corvette) and get hired as a promo model.
That was the “in” she needed. She met so many awesome people and
companies and learned a ton about the car racing industry.
Kristen truly enjoyed going to all the races and learning about the cars and meeting and talking
with the team owners and pro drivers. She started out doing ride-a longs and she begged to start driving.
Her dreams finally started becoming a reality when she was able to drive on numerous tracks with pro drivers
who coached her.
Kristen was hooked after one racing experience. She has driven on multiple tracks for numerous years
now and has even tracked her own Corvette at Homestead and Sebring Raceway. Kristen tells us that she is now ready to take her
desire for racing to the next level.
Involvement in the racing industry can get is very expensive, and Kristen told us that she is looking for some help to offset some
of the costs associated with racing. She is attending racing school
to get her license.Her next goal is to get a racing simulator so she can practice at home.
