Morgan Turpen, driver of the 10m sprint car, has already had a great amount of success at such a young age. Five years ago, Turpen won the 2010 United Sprint Car Series rookie of the year award and 4 years later won the 2014 Road to Atlanta Asphalt Championship. In 2009, at the age of 16, Morgan was caught in a devastating situation when she wrecked and busted a carotid artery in her neck. Turpen was in the hospital for over two weeks. Today, Morgan races full time and and travels to many different race tracks.
Back in April, I was able to chat with Morgan and ask her a few questions while we were both in the pits at the 1/2 mile of Lancaster Speedway! Here's your chance to get to know the driver of the 10m a little more!
TS- Looking back to when you started, where did you see this journey originally taking you?
