About Lindsay


Lindsay Fox began racing go-karts when she turned 18, but she has been dreaming about racing cars her entire life, well, most of it anyway.

When Lindsay was seven she attended the 24 Hours of Daytona at Daytona International Speedway and has been hooked every since. A fan of the Group 44 Jaguars, Lindsay followed the IMSA racing carefully cheering on Bob Tullius and the gang (hence the green stripes on her helmet). In 1989 Lindsay’s father, Wilshire, took her to the 12 Hours of Sebring and from there it’s been downhill.

When she was nine Lindsay started working in Timing and Scoring for IMSA. At the age of 13 she and her father joined the SCCA and Lindsay worked in Timing and Scoring for several events each year.

Lindsay and her father made a deal early on that if Lindsay stayed in school and graduated from college that her dad would help her race. In August 1995 Lindsay set off to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University but met Wilshire in Jacksonville on a regular basis to race the go-kart at 103rd Street Sports Complex.

Lindsay’s first kart was a Bug chassis with a 5hp Briggs and Stratton motor. It wasn’t fast, but Lindsay was having a ball. In 1997 Wilshire helped Lindsay buy a Margay chassis with a Yamaha motor on it. That is when Lindsay moved up to the Yamaha Light class and started doing well.

By 1999 Lindsay was a fixture in Jacksonville and started racing Divisional and National WKA races. Her travels took her from Naples, Florida to Norway, Illinois with stops at Charlotte, North Carolina and St. Petersburg, Florida along the way.

In October 2000 Lindsay captured the North Florida Karting Club Yamaha Light Championship in a close battle. In December of 2000 Lindsay raced in her last National kart race and then sold her Margay Brava/Yamaha.

Lindsay’s car racing career started in January 2000 when she attended the Skip Barber three-day racing school. She was lucky enough to be one of only seven students and she got a lot of track time. She learned the principles of driving a racecar while at Skip Barber and recommends the course to anyone serious about racing cars. Lindsay earned her SCCA regional license that weekend but would have to wait until July 2001 to get to use it.

In July 2001 Lindsay attended the SCCA driving school at Sebring International Raceway’s club course. This was Lindsay’s first taste of a Spec Racer Ford and her first chance at competition. At the end of the two day school Lindsay’s group participated in a practice race. At the end of the race Lindsay took top honors. (for the full story see Lindsay’s Race Report).

Since that day Lindsay has raced in several SCCA events. She has not only raced in the Spec Racer Ford class, but also in a Spec Miata with Christine Gurley and in a Dave Brown Motorsports AS Mustang.

In 2003 Lindsay evaluated her career in racing and decided to go back to her roots, go-kart racing. In October 2003 a new CKI chassis was purchased with the intent to race in Piston Port (PP) Can. Lindsay first raced the CKI at Daytona and brought home two top ten finishes.

A little more than a year after buying the new kart Lindsay scored her first national victory in PP Can Lite at Road Atlanta. Three months later she repeated her national success by finishing first in PP Can Lite at Roebling Road Raceway. Because of her national success Lindsay decided to pursue six national events with hopes of finishing in the top five year-end points. Another national victory came at Lindsay's first visit to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

In 2006 Lindsay plans to continue racing in the WKA Natioanl Road Racing Series.
