Tiana Berkeley knows what she wants and her apparently quiet, but steadfast persistence gets her just that. So when she asked her parents to let her try her hand at stock car racing two years ago, she wasnâ€™t prepared to take no for an answer.
â€śI just figured she would get out there, get dirty and not enjoy it, because itâ€™s pretty rough,â€ť says her mother, Holly Berkeley. â€śBut when she got out there (on the track) she was enjoying it so much, and to see her big smile when she got out of the carâ€¦she loves it. Iâ€™ve never seen her so passionate about anything else.â€ť
