Meet Kaylyn Harrill of Fremont Nebraska. This little girl packs a punch, and for her, racing is about so much more than just going fast. This little racechick is racing to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis and the Boomer Esiason Foundation and with her brother Tyler’s help, raised over $2000 in the 2016 season. 

Following in her brother’s footsteps, Kaylyn began racing cage karts when she was 6 years old. She made her inaugural run in the junior sprint world in 2016. Racing at tracks in Kansas and Nebraska in the Jay Husker racing series, she has been successful in winning several heat races and won the Eagle Raceway’s Mini Miss Nebraska Cup.


Kaylyn’s main objective for this coming season is to continue the team mission “Turning Laps to Breathe” to keep raising funds and awareness for Boomer Esiason Foundation and cystic fibrosis. The 1st annual ‘Turning Laps to Breathe’ Fundraiser race will be held on June 17th at Concordia High Banks in Concordia Kansas. After a packed racing schedule, she hopes to complete the season racing at the Tulsa Shootout in December 2017.


When asked what her favorite part of racing is, she replied “I like going fast! I like finding my line on the bottom and keeping people from passing me. I really like passing other cars too. It’s very fun to race against the boys and beat them! At the end of my races, I like to meet my fans and sign autographs in the pits.”
