Miranda is a 15-year-old sophomore at Avon High School, just West of Indianapolis in Indiana. Miranda is an only child to parents Bill and Norma and has been racing since she was 4-1/2 years old when she began racing ¼ midgets.

Though Miranda has many typical teenage interests, she is serious about her driving. She works out 4 times a week with PitFit Training to keep in top physical condition for racing, and she really knows her cars. She’s responsible for all the maintenance and upkeep for all of her cars, including changing oil and filters, cleaning nozels, mounting tires, setting the valves and other routine maintenance to keep the car in top racing shape. She has worked at Snyder Enterprise, a local company, tearing down motors, tearing down and rebuilding heads, putting motors on and off both Dynos and cars, and building race engines and Dynos. She has also fabricated the chassis for ¼ midgets and 600 micro-midgets.

Miranda's goal is to someday be a driver in the Indy Racing League.
