THIS IS MY STORY

Texas native and Sports Reporter, Jacklyn (Harris) Drake, was born with a passion for racing running through her veins. Attending her first racetrack at the young age of 6 weeks old, Jacklyn grew up in a household of racers and spent 13 years behind a steering wheel competing in Go-Karts, Quarter Midgets, Legends, and asphalt Late Models.

Her devotion for auto racing followed her into College where she studied and applied her Marketing abilities for her fellow racing teammates who needed a website developed. After moving to North Carolina in 2013, Jacklyn officially initiated her own career in the racing industry by working as a Marketing Specialist and Graphic Designer at Roush Yates Engines. 

 

Shortly after, Jacklyn began working on camera with the CARS Tour and Pit Row TV interviewing drivers and fans. She hosted a weekly video series called; "Keeping Up to Pace with Jacklyn" to bring light to CARS Tour events before transitioning over to "The Face of the CARS Tour" in 2018.

She has also worked with Speed51, Go Pro Motorplex, NASCAR Roots, and joins Pit Row TV for LIVE pit-reporting, hosting and as an on-air personality. In addition, she extensively reports and edits human interest stories on drivers and teams within the CARS Tour series.

 

In 2019, Jacklyn teamed up with Hannah Newhouse and Motor Racing Network to develop/host a weekly podcast focused on asphalt Late Model racing and building the fan base for short track racing; Sealed Off.

Jacklyn's passion for motorsports and showcasing behind the scenes stories expanded in 2020 when she launched 'Monday Night Live' where she hosts a variety of guests weekly on Instagram.

 

As a reporter, Jacklyn is shaping the world of sports reporting by not only telling fans tales of triumph on the track, but simultaneously reporting raw emotion of auto racing.
