Congratulations to NASA time trial Corvette racer Tracy Gaudu, who has won the inTech Max the Tach V trailer giveaway contest co-sponsored by RacingJunk.com, Motul, Car Chix, the United States Motorsports Association, and Red Tide Canopies. Gaudu has been a finalist for the contest twice before, and this is her first time winning, a task she took very seriously, stretching beyond her comfort zone to encourage fans and friends to support her in her endeavor. She created the Team Tracy Motorsport brand, including social media accounts with an eye towards moving her team further into the public eye.
“I am so honored and very thankful to be given this once in a lifetime opportunity to be the 2021 inTech Max The Tach ambassador and owner of that beautiful inTech trailer which is my dream trailer!” says Gaudu. “It wasn’t one or two owners of a company who chose to sponsor me, but it was all of you out there, my friends, followers and fans, who voted faithfully for me through 3 contests to get me to the final round each time and ultimately the winner for 2021! This means so much to me!
“I plan on pushing forward with my plans for 2021 which is to continue to compete in time trials within NASA but to also get my competition license and delve into wheel to wheel competition. I plan on representing not only inTech trailers but RacingJunk, Motul, Car Chix, Redtide Canopies and the United States Motorsports Association to the very best of my ability!”
As all racers who need to take that next step come to realize, it’s not enough to just be solid and strong behind the wheel. You need support, sponsorship and vision. As Tracy educated herself and continued to push past her natural reticence and self-reliance in order to grow her opportunities, she came to terms with how important it is to build a community of support.
“It’s worth it,” she said to her fellow competitors on a Zoom call with inTech, RacingJunk and finalists Lauren Butler and Mason Ludwig. “It’s hard to put yourself out there on social media. I’m a private person, and I don’t like to ask people to help, and I hate to bug them. It’s hard to do. But I’m reaping the rewards today.”
Congratulations Tracy! We can’t wait to see how the inTech Trailer sponsorship allows you to take that next step in your racing journey! Well done. And congrats as well to talented finalists Mason and Lauren. We will be looking for you next year!
