Drag Racer Alex Taylor has responded to the trolls on social media. Taylor won the Unlimited Iron class during the Sick Week 2023.
She had to travel nearly 1,000 miles during the event. She then competed at four tracks in five days.
“Since I started racing in 2013… I’ve always had people try to keep me out,” Taylor said on her Alex Taylor Racing page. “I’ve had people hate me Every. Single. Time. I do something good. I usually just brush it off. This week has been full of mixed emotions and people who don’t always understand. This week dad and I busted butt and worked HARD to get a win in our class. All while I still chatted with anyone that stopped by — which I was thankful they did and really enjoyed! But. This week I’ve been called a cheater. Been told I bring a circus to the pits. I’ve been called “just an influencer”. I didn’t even post hardly anything this week because I don’t want to be an “influencer”. I am a racer. I work hard. I surround myself with a great team. And I set goals.
“While I can’t change other perspectives of me – I can choose to not listen to their hate filled comments. With that said, I’m learning to accept the title of influencer and strive to do my best to “influence” people like this girl and other young and old and boys and girls alike to get into the sport and make a positive impact on the industry and those around them.”
In her post, she even challenged her trolls and haters.
“I challenge those that just make hateful comments and that stew in their own hate filled juices to look at what they’re doing and see if they are actually helping the sport grow or if they stifling it with jealousy and hate?,” she said. “If the answer is no – then do better. And redirect your time on something better. If you want to be great – then act great.”
According to 1320Video.com, Taylor averaged 6.986 at 206.95 mph.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
