* Breaking down the skill it takes to drive a Pro Stock Motorcycle
* Going through a beauty pageant phase and how she went from hating it to realize it was another form of competition
* The story of the first leathers she wore in her NHRA debut and how that connects to the correct pronunciation of her name
* Secretly testing a Winston Cup stock car
* Being afraid of being a girl in racing and calling it one of the biggest mistakes in her career
