Apply to be on the First All-Female High School Auto Racing Team

Are you the “nerd,” the “hidden figure,” our next “Einstein”? Do you get top scores in your science and math classes, but downplay your love of those subjects because it’s not “cool?”

Athena Racing is here to demolish the status quo and provide a fun place for you to learn and grow. Here at Athena, it is okay to nerd-out on puzzles that will blow most people’s minds. We take cars apart and put them back together. We take a racecourse and break it down with the science of driving. We develop a laser-focused awareness that instills a sense of safety that others don’t possess. We look at all of the parts of business and use innovation and imagination to take what exists and make it better.  

If you have been looking for your place to build and drive and explore, you have found it. If you want to become the engineer, the driver, the designer, the businesswoman and be on the team that creates something that the world has yet to imagine, this is where you start. The hands-on experience that you will gain here will give you the foundation from which to do anything and everything you set your mind to!
