Beth Chryst is an up and coming star in the World Karting Association and Woodbridge Kart Club. She is also a kind neighbor, good daughter, sweet and caring granddaughter, works a full-time job to support her racing events, and has roadmap plan of goals, and knows where she needs to go and what she needs to accomplish to get there.

Beth could have been a runway model, tall, brunette, beautiful, and smart, with luminescent dark brown eyes. But while she is beautiful in evening clothes, or a chic business suit, you will find her with wrenches in her hand in her spare time – Beth has a different goal – to hone her racing skills through her love of Karting and winning while continuing to fine tune her racing skills through training at several of the top NASCAR driving schools.

Although Beth has always had a love for cars, speed, and NASCAR, she began her quest for racing greatness by renting a kart at an event at the Woodbridge Kart Club that allowed her 15 minutes to gain the thrill for karting, the need for speed, and the challenge for winning. After that, she was hooked.

Born and raised in Herndon, Virginia as an only child, Beth graduated from Herndon High School with an advanced diploma, and was named Who’s Who among American High School Students. While attending Herndon High School, Beth was on a fast pitch softball team.

When she is not racing, Beth works as Project Administrator for Toll Brothers, Incorporated, continues her college education at Northern Virginia Community College, coaches and plays softball, and enjoys her dog Skipper and 1 year old puppy Lacy. Beth not only enjoys driving cars but she has turned the wrenches on her karts and her 2003 MINI Cooper S, installing an exhaust and an intake system to increase the Cooper S performance.

Things are getting hectic for me however I am so excited with everything that is going on with me and my racing. The race car is together and running! Now it’s time to work on me! It is keeping me busy but extremely happy with everything I have devoted to making this work for me. I can finally show everyone a video that a girl named Kristina Carlson put together to explain how our series (MX-5 Cup) works. This video was shot at Homestead- Miami Speedway (our season opener) in the beginning of March. Enjoy it! I really feel honored to be in it. She did an amazing job and really captured some of the best things about the series. The first car shown in the video is mine!!!


Beth Chryst Sets Goals, Ready To Move Forward In MX-5 Cup Competition


When it comes to professional racing, often the fan in the stands or watching on television is consumed with the front of the field – who is winning, who is leading the championship, who is turning the fastest laps – and misses the battles brewing just behind, oftentimes the most spirited battles in the race.

It’s fractions of seconds that make the difference between the two groups, and the difference often comes down to resources – experience, seat time, preparation. The struggle for young drivers, especially, is how to gain those things. A sponsor often wants to see a driver run up front; a driver needs that sponsor to help get the ability to run up front.

Beth Chryst is just one of the SCCA Pro Racing Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup drivers currently staring at that circle, carefully plotting the balance between the two and chasing a dream that began with a go-kart ride as a 14-year-old.

The Herndon, Va. native had grown-up visiting the short tracks in her area, but didn’t truly become interested in driving herself until an acquaintance invited her and her father, Martin, to Summit Point Raceway to participate in the Woodbridge Kart Club’s fun finale. Fifteen minutes on the 2-mile road course, and she was hooked.

For 10 years, the Chryst family traveled up and down the east coast, progressively running up the karting world’s ladder at events on road courses from Loudon, New Hamphire to Daytona, and hitting circuits currently on the MX-5 Cup schedule like Road America and Mid-Ohio.

With Regional, Grand National, and World Karting Association World Championships under her belt, and an accounting and accounts receivable job offering some flexibility, it was time for something new.

“While I was racing go karts, I tested a Formula Renault, I raced a Formula Renault a couple of times, I did my all Skippy schools,” Chryst says. “I made the decision that I’m not getting any younger, I need to jump.”

That opportunity came in the MX-5 Cup.

“I had the opporutinty to buy [former MX-5 Cup competitor Brian] Audet’s car in May of 2010,” Chryst said of the opportunity. “I started doing Regional stuff with SCCA [Club Racing] in September and started in 2011 [with MX-5 Cup].”

The transition was a tough one – with relatively little seat time in a car, Chryst showed up at Homestead-Miami Speedway for the season 2011 season-opener and realized quickly that she was going to have to reassess her goals.

“It’s hard sometimes because we’re used to being up front and being competitive, and it was a huge slice of humble pie for me last year to kind of, well, Beth, you’re going to be caboose,” said Chryst in a moment of self-assessment.

“I think that’s probably the biggest obstacle that I’m still currently faced with. I don’t have the background in car racing that most of the competitors in our series have. I thought it was going to be a much easier cross over, and it really has been quite challenging.”

The struggles gave her a clear path to work down, and after a couple of races Chryst learned that the MX-5 Cup really is the perfect opportunity for a new driver to learn the ropes – both for working on the MX-5 and for her driving.

“We literally printed out the Sachs Shock manual and we sit down and it says ‘corner entry understeer or corner entry oversteer,’ and we sit down and follow our finger over and make an adjustment from there,” Chryst said. “We have the Copeland’s who have more experience with it, so we discuss things as a group. We’re trying to go at it knowledgeably, and doing a little research before we just take a big swing at it.

“There’s more people that I have established more of a relationship with, that I feel more comfortable with. Charles Paquin and I raced together a lot last year, and I can ask him where he thinks he’s doing better and why. He’s really helped me. Everyone at C.J. Wilson has always been really welcoming to me, so I’m sure that if I ever wanted to go to them with a question they would help us.”

Despite the challenges, improvements continued to come during the trying rookie season, and the 26-year-old entered the 2012 season-opening doubleheader at Sebring with optimistic, yet reasonable hopes. The improvements were noticeable for those who were paying attention, but the results still showed a 17th and a 16th-place finish – further down the charts than the small team hoped.

“Unfortunately, my results at Sebring don’t really show it, but I think if you look at the lap times between the leaders and myself that I’m closer to them,” she said. “There’s not such a speed difference between us. That I’m really happy with. The things that I’m not happy with are, like at Sebring qualifying on Sunday, that I’m getting quicker, but I’m still almost last. That really shows the caliber of drivers in the series, I just feel like my improvements aren’t being shown as much.”

With plans to run the full schedule in 2012, however, don’t be surprised to eventually see the No. 2 Chryst Brothers Construction Mazda MX-5 continue to creep up the finishing order all season long, especially when the series returns to some of the tracks that it also visited in 2011.

In the meantime, Chryst will keep working her angles, looking for sponsors, and finding new and unique ways to reach out to people and get some assistance. Chryst displayed her car – one she’s lovingly nicknamed “Miss Scarlet” - at the Washington, D.C. Auto Show over the winter, and blogs about her racing experiences at Female Racing News – and has used that, along with her social media prowess to grow her fan base on Twitter.

“I have been fortunate enough to meet a couple of great people. Studio Rhoad is hosting my website for me, and they made my hero cards. They really are helping me hone who I am as a driver and to lure people in. I’m a driver for Race4Girls, which is an organization where people can donate money and I can accumulate points, and once I accumulate my set level of points I can apply for a grant out of that fund. Other than that, it’s my 7 – 3:30 finance job, and that’s where the funds come from.”

For Chryst, the path is clear – keep pushing, keep improving, keep hunting for those sponsorship dollars, and eventually the results will come.

Chryst, and all of the competitors in the SCCA Pro Racing Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup, returns to action this week with a doubleheader “home race” for the Series at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

Each race in the Playboy MX-5 Cup in 2012 is aired on Velocity, a high-definition channel in the Discovery family of networks. More information on the series and the television schedule can be found at www.MX-5Cup.com.

Tough Love Learened in the Rain


Brainerd, MN was a trip I will NEVER forget. A weekend of many firsts for me and memories I will never forget. First my week started off with shipping my car to Brainerd without me!!! It was a different feeling for me! Weird, I know but something about just sending your car off and meeting it there was a first for me. Having my car shipped to the track in a hauler with others was a great experience and gave me a chance to have a couple more days of work!!!!!

Let’s discuss the town of Brainerd, MN. Not only did I ride a legit PROP PLANE from St. Paul into Brainerd. We land in Brainerd at 12:30 to find out that there are only 3 flights into that airport EACH DAY!! Only 2 car rental desks and no luggage conveyor belt! What a cute little town it was! I didn’t stray too far. One night I had the pleasure to join fellow competitors and a couple of Mazda representatives. Such a gorgeous dinner!!! It was on a lake, with a guitarist, and boats everywhere! I will leave out the fact of how cold it was!!!

Friday started out great. I was given the opportunity to do a radio interview with the local rock station. A great chance to help get my name out there!! Such nice guys! Practice started at 9:45am for us. What a great track to learn!!!! I had the pleasure of riding around the track with Greg C. Thursday evening. I should have known when he said buckle up I was going to be in for a ride!!! He took me around in an Expedition at almost 100 mph!!! Needless to say I learned an immense amount about the track and the line there. Friday was good however I still needed to feel some more stability out of the car to get some more speed. Last round of practice has left a vivid image in my head that I will never forget. There is an extremely high speed wide open corner… turn 2. I had finally built up my confidence throughout the course of the day and was taking the corner wide open. A competitor had passed me right before entering the corner and I was trying to see his line vs. where mine was. Losing sight of the corner and focusing on him and not the task in my hands I spun out wide open down into a field where the grass/cat tails were higher than my car and I! As I looked over to check the corner workers I noticed they were all staring at me in disbelief! Started the car and eased my way out. The poor shop vac I borrowed had at least 10 pounds of sand/dirt in it when I was finished cleaning my car out.

Saturday started with a round of practice, qualifying, and then the race. I never really felt comfortable with the new tires we are required to qualify and race on. For me the comfort came from the BF Goodrich tires that had over 5 heat cycles on them. Luckily for me the driver that drove my car to the track also had some great car set up advice. My father and Casey worked hard on my race car and gave me the confidence I needed to start my Sunday off well.

Sunday came and I was .5 of a second quicker in the qualifying session than I had been all weekend. I really was starting to feel good about the comfort of my car. It felt stable for once and I wanted to get up on that wheel! We grid for the race and the dark clouds start rolling in. Lap 4 or 5 comes by and the rain starts. No denying it, I have minimal experience racing in the rain. I just haven’t ever really had the opportunities to get much seat time in the rain. So the rain starts and it’s pouring on one half and sunny on the other after 25 minutes of staying out on the track in slicks I came in for rains. A whole new world for me!!!! I learned so much in 20 minutes on rains it was great! Not that I overly wish I have too many more of those rain races but I will take any learning experiences I can get!!!! Above and beyond everything there were a BUNCH of race cars that are going home with a LOT of damage and I am thankful I brought my car home in one piece.

Life is slowly starting to calm down. I think this is the calm before the storm! One more race, at Petite Le Mans at Road Atlanta. I hope everyone who is thinking about going makes an attempt to go!!! We race Friday morning September 30th and hopefully you will stop by and say hi! I am sitting 8th in points with one race to go in my 2011 rookie season. Numerous tricks and lessons have been learned so far this year and I can’t wait to see what 2012 will hold for me!!!

While the 2011 season isalmost Beth is already focusing a lot of her attention to finding a partnership with a companyfor the 2012 season. She prides herself on being very open constructive criticism and anypointers anyone can give her. “I know I won’t set the world on fire in my first season however,you can be sure I will work my hardest to improve every time I take to the track” Beth adds.

When Beth isn’t racing she is playing co-ed softball 2 days a week and working a full time job tofund her dreams. Not only do those two things keep her busy, she also spends a lot of time at the gym staying in shape. “I’ve given up everything to chase my dream and nothing will hold me back”.

In order to achieve her long-term goal of becoming a professional racecar driver, Beth continues to attend as many races as possible. She began her Karting career in the Briggs Jr. Sprint Lite and Heavy class, graduated to the Briggs Sprint 335 and 360 class and currently participates in the Spec 125 and ICC/WKA CIK.

Within her first season in Spec 125, Beth found herself winning a World Championship and three Regional Championships across the East Coast. In 2005 Beth began preparing for her next step up from Karting by attending the Skip Barber Racing Drivers School to hone her skills and testing for Bob Gelles Racing in the Formula Renault F2000. She then followed up with the Skip Barbers Advanced Two Day Racing School.

In 2006, Beth anticipates winning the Karting Championship for Spec 125 and ICC/WKA CIK with hopes of attracting sponsorship for racing in an openwheel series. With four wins under her belt she is hopeful for a strong finish in the 2006 season. With the season coming to an end Beth has a Regional Championship in Sprint Shifter 1 with Woodbridge Kart Club. When the national season came to an end, Beth finished out 5th place in WKA/ICC CIK 1, 4th place in WKA/ICC CIK 2 and 6th place in Spec 125 Sprint. She is looking forward to see what 2007 brings her.
