16 Year Old Girl Goaled to Win Indy 500
Savannah Rickli has been racing go-karts since she was seven years old, and at the age of sixteen she has now conquered one of the most terrifying races out there: The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, a one-way, 12.4-mile trip up Colorado's highest mountain.
"This is such a personal victory," Rickli told the Associated Press. "I've been waiting for this moment since I went to my first hill climb 12 years ago. I'm just so happy to be up here."
The Pikes Peak apparently wasn't enough for the 16 year old, Mini-Cooper Wheeling, daredevil–Apparently her next feat is to be the first woman to win the Indy 500 race.
