 Macy Causey Wins Rookie Of The Year At Langley Speedway For 2015

 

Macy Causey grew up on the racetrack. So it came as no surprise to her parents, Rette and Dee Causey, former drivers themselves, when Macy wanted to follow in their footsteps.

 

“I always went to the racetrack with my dad.” the 14-year-old says, “When I was 7 or 8, I decided that I wanted to race.”

 

 

Her racing roots extend beyond her parents to her maternal grandmother, Diane Teel. Teel, a trailblazer herself, raced in the 1970s and was the first woman to win a NASCAR sanctioned race in 1978.

 

And like her father, Macy races in the number 33 car.

 

“It’s the number I always raced and she wanted to keep the same number as her dad,” says Rette Causey.

 

Macy drives a blue, silver and hot pink Chevrolet SS. Yet despite being two years below driver’s license eligibility, she is able to race legally.
